Colbert

Host

The successor to David Letterman, Colbert has seen his viewership as host of CBS’ “The Late Show” surge ever since the 2016 election. While pointedly poking fun at President Donald Trump is commonplace nowadays, Colbert was the first mainstream late-night star to go headlong into it. He was fearless again at the delicate task of taking on boss Leslie Moonves when the CBS kingpin was forced into the #MeToo era this year. Colbert rose to fame on Comedy Central, hiding behind his fictional bombastic, right-leaning talk-show anchor on “The Colbert Report,” but on “Late Show” he reveals his true self more every day. He sounds his alarm with biting monologues and political comedy — and hones the expectations of late night while doing so.
