Late Show to Host Live Post-Debate Shows, Late Show Writers’ Poor Little Fingers to Snap Right Off

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

CBS announced today that The Late Show With Stephen Colbert will air three very special episodes following the presidential and vice-presidential debates. On Monday, September 26; Tuesday, October 4; and Wednesday, October 19, Colbert and an as-yet-unnamed lineup of guests will take the Ed Sullivan stage live at 11:35 p.m., while backstage the Late Show writers chug 5-Hour Energy, grind their fingers down to bloody stumps, and try to turn a debate’s worth of insanity into comedic gold faster than humanly possible.
