On a discursive Late Show interview, Rose McGowan talks Harvey Weinstein, her recent arrest, and courage 

Welcoming actress, author, singer, and, as he put it, “activist with her own army” Rose McGowan to The Late Show on Wednesday, Stephen Colbert complimented his first guest’s courage, and her hoodie.

Live Daily and Late Shows break Trump's stomach-churning State Of The Union into more digestible nuggets

Both the Late Show With Stephen Colbert and The Daily Show With Trevor Noah stayed up late on Tuesday to deliver live breakdowns of Donald Trump’s long, rambling, predictably racist and awful (if obediently on-book) State Of The Union speech. Whether or not attempting to cobble together a show’s worth of jokes on the…

Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert wring laughs from this week’s second-most recent constitutional crisis

So it turns out Donald Trump tried to fire special counsel Robert Mueller back in June. You know, Robert Mueller, the guy in charge of investigating Donald Trump both for collusion with Russia in order to win the presidential election and for obstructing justice—with regard to that investigation about collusion with…

Look, if you have to read about Donald Trump and a porn star, at least have Stephen Colbert read it to you

Donald Trump is calling impoverished countries “shitholes,” precipitating a possible government shutdown, giving awards to media outlets he deems “fake news,” and screaming about a book airing his dirty laundry, so you’d be forgiven for missing the bit about our president paying $130,000 in hush money to a porn star

Stephen Colbert taped his show just in time to ask James Franco about those sexual misconduct allegations

Alec Baldwin is pissed at Stephen Colbert and John Oliver for turning late-night shows into “grand juries”

Alec Baldwin’s attempts to quit Twitter don’t appear to be going very well; although he has, as promised, stopped using his old @AlecBaldwin account to vent his grumpinesses into the world, that’s just turned out to mean a lot more activity on the account that’s ostensibly connected to the Hilaria And Alec Baldwin…

Stephen Colbert goes all-in on the GOP going all-in on alleged Republican pedophile Roy Moore

With polls showing—nauseatingly—it’s still anyone’s race in the Alabama special election for Jeff Sessions’ old senate seat, Stephen Colbert had some thoughts on Tuesday’s Late Show for those Republicans working overtime to prop up noted bigot, twice-fired disgraced judge, and thoroughly alleged sexual predator Roy…
