Under Colbert, “The Late Show” is once again an Emmy stalwart for variety talk series, having earned a total of 13 nominations since the former host of “The Colbert Report” took over in September 2015. Like his fellow late-night brethren, Colbert spent most of 2020’s spring hosting from his house, before he was able to move back to the show’s empty studio under strict safety guidelines.
