Hillary Clinton and Stephen Colbert to figure out where it all went wrong 

Hillary Clinton has been tentatively returning to the public eye, mostly in an attempt to promote her new book, and she’ll be making her first late-night show appearance since losing the election later this month. As reported in an uncharacteristically snarky Deadline story, Clinton will be appearing on Stephen Colbert’s Late Show on September 19 to talk about her book, and the two of them will discuss all of the things you’d expect to hear someone talk to Hillary Clinton about in 2017—specifically her failed campaign and the disastrous Trump administration.

Clinton isn’t the only political figure looking to reclaim some dignity by going on a late-night show, though, as a separate Deadline story reveals that Sean “Spicey” Spicer will be making his late-night debut on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on September 13. That story notes that Spicey probably wouldn’t appear on NBC because of how extensively Saturday Night Live mocked him, and he probably wouldn’t appear on CBS after Colbert booked his rival The Mooch, which left Kimmel’s show as the best option. Meanwhile, both CNN and Fox News have said they have no interest in hiring Spicer as a commentator, so this might be our last chance to see him on TV for a while.
