Deadline reports The Late Show With Stephen Colbert has pulled a pre-taped interview with Jeremy Piven from Friday’s lineup. The late-night show provided the following statement in explanation: “Jeremy Piven’s interview for Friday’s broadcast was pre-taped earlier this week on Monday, October 30. Since we were unable to address recent developments in that interview, we are replacing that segment with a new guest.”
The “recent developments,” of course, are allegations of the Entourage alum’s “predatory behavior” from reality TV personality Ariane Bellamar and Longmire’s Cassidy Freeman. Piven’s categorically denied that he groped or harassed anyone. The Late Show airs on CBS, which has also been home to the Piven vehicle Wisdom Of The Crowd. And along with HBO, the eye network announced it was looking into allegations against Piven.
