Happy Fucksgiving: Daniel Craig confirms he’ll be back for at least one more Bond film

In the end, it turned out that Daniel Craig really did give a fuck after all; after years of dodging, shrugging, and claiming that, if he came back to the part, it would only be “for the money,” Craig confirmed tonight on Late Show With Stephen Colbert that he’ll be back for at least one more turn as international…

White House correspondent April Ryan tells Stephen Colbert why “fake news” is nonsense

In a country where the press is under attack (figuratively and, as of this week, physically), White House correspondent and American Urban Radio Networks Washington bureau chief April Ryan has endured more than her share of abuse from the Trump administration, and Trump himself. As shown in clips on last night’s Late…

FCC won’t take action over Stephen Colbert’s controversial Trump joke

Stephen Colbert’s Late Show went through a rollercoaster of controversy earlier this month. First, some viewers (and probably some non-viewers) objected to a bleeped joke about Donald Trump’s mouth being Vladimir Putin’s “cock holster.” Then reports came out saying that the FCC was launching an investigation into…

Rachel Maddow talks ratings and the prospect of Republicans doing the right thing on The Late Show

Appearing on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on the night that ratings reports showed that The Rachel Maddow Show was the number one show on cable news, host Rachel Maddow speculated that the success of her show (and MSNBC as a whole) of late has a lot to do with how the Trump presidency has everyone looking for…

Timothy Simons elaborates on the riot he witnessed at a shitty bar in Chicago

On Friday’s episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Veep star and proud father Timothy Simons told a variation of a story he previously told The A.V. Club a few years ago.

Veep’s Timothy Simons thinks his daughter has cracked the Trump-Comey letter

Unlike his peerlessly hateable “Hunchback of Notre Hampshire” Congressman Jonah Ryan on Veep, actor Timothy Simons made for a charming, not at all punchable guest on last night’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert. (He’s also been able to grow out his hair and a decent beard after shooting the show’s sixth season, which…

Stephen Colbert to bring some of his Daily Show friends to The Late Show

Stephen Colbert’s Late Show has spent the last 13 weeks beating Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show in terms of total viewers, and to guarantee at least another week of free pizza for his crew (assuming he doesn’t get fired), he’s lined up some special guests for his May 9 show. According to The Hollywood Reporter, that…

Stephen Colbert hit with #FireColbert backlash after “homophobic” Trump joke

During his show on Monday, Stephen Colbert lobbed a bunch of insults at Donald Trump while commenting on the president’s interview with John Dickerson. The set-up? Trump went after one CBS star, so another CBS star was going to hit back. In addition to calling Trump “Gorge Washington” and “pricktator,“ he said: “You…

Stephen Colbert congratulates America on surviving Trump’s first 100 days

Congratulations! If you’re reading this—and you’re not some kind of just-born, hyper-intelligent “boss baby” capable of reading online pop culture news—you’re just a weekend away from successfully surviving the first 100 days of the Trump administration. In order to commemorate the event, Stephen Colbert devoted part…

“Stephen Colbert” bids a sarcastically fond farewell to his Papa Bear, Bill O’Reilly

The vast liberal conspiracy—you know, the one that thinks serial sexual harassment over a period of decades is a crime that ought to be punished, in at least some meager way—scored an insidious win today, ousting Bill O’Reilly from his position of power at Fox News. But one tireless defender of truthiness wasn’t about…

Stephen Colbert says he’d trade his good ratings for “a better president”

Stephen Colbert’s Late Show has been getting better ratings than Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show for 10 weeks now, and it’s clear that the boost is almost entirely because of the way Colbert is willing to get political and call out Donald Trump’s bullshit. In fact, Colbert’s winning streak has been so prolonged that…
