Critic Reviews for The Late Show With Stephen Colbert Season 1

All Critics (56) | Top Critics (34)

The inaugural Late Show with Stephen Colbert was so packed with comedy bits, special guests and music, it went several minutes overtime - but it didn't feel long. It felt good.

The fact that Colbert can't help himself lets the rest of us not feel so bad about not being able to help ourselves. So we laugh together.

His evolution is just beginning. The DVR is set for the next however many years.

Colbert made a strong case that viewers should get to know him -- the real him.

The late Stephen Colbert did better than this; the newly born Stephen Colbert can too.

That said, the first Colbert Late Show... was promising if not perfect, ranging from sharp meta-late-night humor and funny politically tinged bits to the kind of bland chitchat that makes the network late-night talk show an often frustrating genre.

Plenty to confirm there are encouraging signs in the new Late Show.

Stephen, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Sep 9, 2015 | Full Review…

There are hints of the wackiness and pointed commentary Colbert displayed while hosting The Colbert Report, but it's been slightly mellowed, better to conform to a wider, more mainstream audience.

Sep 9, 2015 | Full Review…

While the comedian's network TV humor is definitely broader than his Colbert Report satire, it still works thanks to his natural screen presence.
