The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

Talk Show

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is an upcoming American late-night talk show hosted by Stephen Colbert on CBS. It will be the second iteration of the Late Show franchise, following the retirement of original Late Show host David Letterman. The show is scheduled to premiere on September 8, 2015.

Colbert has previously hosted The Colbert Report on Comedy Central. Several states and municipalities attempted to coax CBS into moving production of the program from its long-time home in New York City with tax credits and other incentives, including Los Angeles, New Orleans and Connecticut. On July 23, 2014, CBS announced that Late Show will continue to be produced at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York when Colbert takes over. Colbert will also be bringing most of his staff from The Colbert Report with him to Late Show. Jonathan Batiste was announced as the bandleader on June 4, 2015, with his Stay Human band succeeding the CBS Orchestra as the house band.
