We also have the second and third episodes of Scandal High from Jimmy Kimmel.
Aziz Ansari diversified late night television (finally).
And we got a new Clueless Gamer from Conan, as well as Canadian Horror Story.
Over on Colbert, Stephen got Jonathan Franzen to read him a very scary bedtime story. He also got into Halloween by dressing as a sexy teenage vampire, and he had a great tutorial on how to carve the perfect Jack-o-Lantern.
Blake Shelton is fine with jokes about his marriage, as he explains on Late Night, and Seth and Rachel Dratch cleared the air.
Then over on The Tonight Show, the judges of The Voice played Spin the Microphone.
Olivia Wilde performed in the Actatholon on Late Night, which was fun (and impressive).
Jimmy and Gabrielle Union did some morning musical announcements which was cute as always.
And as usual the weekly recaps of The Daily Show and The Nightly Show.
One of the more beautiful performances was Misty Copeland dancing to Yo-Yo Ma's music.
Fred Armisen very accurately described an Oxygen series.
And as you may know, Jey Leno stopped by The Tonight Show earlier this week (and I was not ok with that). But then Shaq basically made up for all that with these two segments.
And the weekly recaps of The Daily Show and The Nightly Show.
Meanwhile, over on Fallon, Black Simon & Garfunkel (& real Garfunkel) sang "Can't Feel My Face" & Jimmy & Julianne Moore played Box of Lies.
Of course, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah began, but for some reason Comedy Central does not want you watching clips unless you're a citizen of the US, just like its host.
Over on Fallon, they parodied Empire, Joseph Gordon-Levitt joined the barbershop quartet for BBHMM, and Kegan and Kel reunited for a "Good Burger" sketch.
Trump and Colbert played a game where they had to figure out who said the absurd statement.
Celebrities read mean tweets live on Kimmel.
Fred Armisen took vacation pics with his selfie stick because he's perfect.
And the Nightly Show weekly recap.
Jimmy Fallon welcomed Hillary Clinton, and had fun with Lionel Richie, as well as with Justin Timberlake (of course).
And a recap of this week's Nightly Show.
First of all, we have some clips from that first Colbert Late Show, including his opening bit and George Clooney introducing his new 'movie'. He also gave a heart-warming tribute to David Letterman.
Over on Late Night Tina Fey showed the internet what kind of dubsmash should go viral (hint: ones with Maya Rudolph in it).
Over on The Tonight Show, Jimmy had Donald Trump on for some silliness and NFL stars read their own superlatives.
And here's the weekly Nightly Show recap.
“I used to play a narcissistic conservative pundit, now I’m just a narcissist”
Colbert then came literally bounding out on the stage with the MOST energy I’ve seen in a late night host. The audience joined in a Stephen chant, reminiscent of his Colbert Report days. I hope that chant never ends.
The opening credits was a miniature version of New York, with Colbert as the announcer and on rooftops. It was adorable and lovely in every way.
He gave a nice little speech to thank Dave Letterman to start the show.
They had a running gag about how they’ll switch the show over to The Mentalist if it starts going bad (The Mentalist is what they’ve had playing in the time slot all summer).
Jimmy Fallon made an appearance from his studio, and the two had an amicable exchange that hopefully puts to rest the claims that Colbert will start a Late Night War (siiiiigh, lazy journalism that’s enough).
He had an entertaining story about how he sold his soul to a demon to get the Late Show, and now has to do his bidding.
When they returned from the first commercial they had a spot for graphics a-la-Report and did some political news, truly sticking to his roots. I mean, on what other show will the host eat two packs of Oeros while talking about Donald Trump?
George Clooney was his first guest, and their interview was light hearted and fun. Since Clooney didn’t have a film to plug, they actually made one up, poking fun at Tom Cruise along the way.
Jeb Bush was the show’s first political candidate, and Colbert asked him both entreating and important questions, just as we expect him to do.
The musical numbers at the end were a medley performed by multiple artists, with Colbert joining in as well.
The final moment of the show had Colbert putting his things away in a locker, with a picture of Jon Stewart taped to the side, and then he said goodbye to Fallon, who was putting his away in a locker with a picture of Colbert. I mean, COME ON.
I like the aesthetic they have going. From the set, to the desk, to the music and the logo. Everything works and it all just fits so well with Colbert and his personality.
Overall, the parts of Colbert that initially drew us to him in the Report are genuinely parts of the real Colbert. He’s energetic, quick, smart, and still funny as ever. He’s still a nerd who loves talking about being a nerd, but he’s more himself now. If anything, the real Colbert could be even better than the character.
He also just seemed so genuinely happy and excited to be there. His happiness was contagious, and you couldn’t help but smile watching him. He could possibly be just the thing late night tv needed, and I cannot wait to see what he does.
Congrats, Stephen, here’s to one trillion more years as host.
