Regardless of politics or the results of the midterm election, Tuesday night proved to be a very bittersweet one for a certain Stephen Colbert. The host of “The Colbert Report” ultimately had to say goodbye to do something in live specials that he has done every two years for a while now.
Do we think he is going to miss it? Probably, but at the same time he gets to go over and host “The Late Show,” which gives him the chance to actually joke about some other things as himself, rather than just some crazy character. The funny thing is that even though he technically has another month or so on the air, Colbert still very much took it upon himself to act like his time on the show was just about over:
“Counting my time on ‘The Daily Show Show with John Daily and the Daily Zoo Crew,’ I’ve been getting together with you like this since 2000. Who can forget that one? Bush v Chad … I have so many memories, mostly shapes and colors. There was a fair amount of drinking along the way.”
Personally, we are looking forward to seeing what Colbert does on election days moving forward, but also what his replacement in Larry Wilmore will be doing instead. His show, entitled “The Minority Report with Larry Wilmore,” will be premiering at some point early next year to follow up “The Daily Show.” Like Stephen, he is used to playing a specific, funny character on TV.
