Tv Season Info
Colbert's late-night shenanigans, while fun, feel a lot more traditional by comparison, courting a slightly older audience.
Colbert's first night as host of his own show was pitched at a fairly manic level of energy; over time, he'll likely dial down a little and ease into his role as cable's most self-absorbed host/pundit.
The new show dovetails nicely with its lead-in to present a solid hour of skewered news and punctured pomposity.
Colbert is such a natural at his smarmy-news-guy persona that he should be able to keep the show watchable if the writing holds up. Thus far it's been extremely sharp
In the run-up to the show it all sounded a bit hard to get your head around, but in the flesh the show zinged, at least this first week.
