The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is an American late-night talk show hosted by Stephen Colbert, which premiered on September 8, 2015. Produced by Spartina Productions and CBS Studios, it is the second iteration of CBS’ Late Show franchise. The program is recorded at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City and airs live to tape in most U.S. markets weeknights at 11:35 p.m. ET/PT, as with its competitors Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Colbert was announced as the new host in April 2014, after existing host David Letterman announced his intent to retire earlier in the month; Colbert had previously hosted Comedy Central’s news satire The Colbert Report, a program where Colbert portrayed himself as a parody of conservative pundits. As such, the series has carried a stronger focus on discussing and satirizing current events, especially within U.S. politics. Some of Colbert’s staff moved to The Late Show, along with Jon Stewart — who previously hosted The Colbert Report‘s parent series The Daily Show — serving as an executive producer.
As of the conclusion of the 2019–20 season, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has been the top late-night program in the United States for the past four seasons. Since 2019, it exceeded The Tonight Show in key demographic viewership.
