Critic Reviews for Colbert Report Season 11

All Critics (12) | Top Critics (9)

It's the character's odd innocence and the real person's heart that combine, I think, to create so much affection and outright love for Colbert.

A cornucopia of fan service and look-at-me spectacle. But it was magical and apt for what Colbert's character was.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

A fond, surprisingly moving farewell to one of TV's most ridiculous - and memorable - characters.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Everything about The Colbert Report was a put-on, a fake, but the grief of losing it is real.

Sep 24, 2018 | Full Review…

Mr. Colbert, who so brilliantly played a caricature of a Fox News talk show host, spent his last week showing that he wouldn't have any trouble dialing it back to become a charming, witty comedian with his own network talk show.

It was the perfect way to say goodbye, with his narcissistic character riding off into the great beyond, to live forever in the minds and actions of his fans.

It was a fitting farewell for a fellow always impressed with his own star power: eternal, groping with theological questions and enveloped in the warm, not particularly tuneful embrace of stars.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

As he has for nine years, Colbert maintained his over-the-top stance as a ultra-patriotic crusader for freedom and justice,a role he has used to skewer any number of political issues and current events.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

It's true: In the end, Colbert's famous character, champion of America and truthiness, will live forever. Although at first, it didn't seem like we would get such a definitive ending to the long-running Comedy Central show.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

A tribute to silliness and how vital it is to our very being; how essential absurdity is in the face of the painfully absurd; how much we need Stephen Colberts and "Stephen Colberts."

Audience Reviews for Colbert Report: Season 11

  • Dec 19, 2015
    News-comedy at its finest. Host Stephen Colbert presents and comments on the latest news, all while having a right-wing slant. Thing is...he's a comedian, not a news anchor, and he's actually left-wing... Brilliant send up of the news, and of right-wing news channels in particular (yes Faux News, we're talking about you). Complete with skits, dream sequences and all manner of comedic devices. Very intelligently written, with a tongue-in-cheek commentary on world events. Best thing about Colbert: he doesn't take himself too seriously. Everything is about the comedy and there's not too many attempts to editorialise. This was Jon Stewart's one failing in The Daily Show: many of his rants were more editorials than comedy routines, and often inaccurate and/or misdirected editorials at that. Then, when an inaccuracy is pointed out, he fell back on "Hey, we're a comedy show, what did you expect!?" Fine, but then don't behave like you're an authority on the matter... Just a pity Colbert gave it all away to host The Late Show. The Late Show is meant for a more mainstream, less intelligent, less political (at least, less left-wing) audience. This means much of his comedy is now dumbed-down and he's forced to suck up to movie stars etc and do clickbait scenes, i.e. the sort of crap you would expect on Jimmy Fallon's show.

    Another recognized deity within my Pantheon even though he is man. 1. Shrek - Created all of existence. Lived a life in the universe he created so his tales could inspire people to be themselves. Is like onions. 2. Black Jesus - The son of God (A title Shrek has used to mask himself until we meet him in person). 3. Colbert - A blessing Shrek put on earth as appreciation for our likeness to the Ogrelord.
