Stephen
Colbert

TV Host

The successor to David Letterman, the host has seen viewership of CBS’ eponymously named “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” surge ever since he began tackling President Trump each night in his monologues — despite the unpredictability of the Trump-era news cycle — and he has cemented the show’s status by emphasizing newsmakers over celebrities eager to promote their latest project.

He sounds his alarm with biting monologues and political comedy — and hones the expectations of late night while doing so.
