Colbert Signs Off in the Only Way He Could Have (Review)

For months the much vaunted finale to The Colbert Report has been talked up and dreaded, but yesterday it finally arrived. In a star-studded farewell with inside jokes and a touching message from the man himself, a nine-year old institution came to its end. The purveyor of truthiness signed off in the only way he could have, with a tribute all about himself, Stephen Colbert. But none of this may be what

Colbert Mocks American Stupidity Over Gas and Sponsorship (Review)

Last night’s Colbert Report covered issues like the drop in gas prices and rich people getting things named after them through sponsorship in an episode that basically mocked American’s stupidity. Short-sightedness and hubris took center stage last night as the titular host analysed what the new, low gas prices means. With the director of the Center on Global Energy Policy, he talked about the best future plans people can make about their

Colbert Kills Off Colbert in Last Week (Review)

This is the start of Stephen Colbert’s last week hosting The Colbert Report and it seems he is tying up a few loose ends. In last night’s segment “Formidable Opponent,” he not only debated the CIA torture report, but he killed off imaginary debating opponent Stephen Colbert just in time for the last week of the show. After nine years, he finished up the segment where he began it in 2005, discussing

Colbert Analyses Torturous Torture Report (Review)

The report on CIA torture is worldwide news, so it is just big enough to catch the eye of The Colbert Report‘s titular host. Last night, Colbert spent time analysing the ubiquitous torture report, something he found nearly as torturous as the actual interrogation. Armed with a pair of “tragedy cancelling headphones” that play nothing but Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off” and accompanied by the director of the National Security Archive,

Stephen Colbert Thanks Nazis for Uniting Congress (Review)

In nine years of his show, Stephen Colbert has to admit that he has failed at a few things, namely fixing Congress. But a surprising group has succeeded where he failed: Nazis. A bill to end social security payments for suspected Nazis living in America passed Congress unanimously. The bill aptly called the “No Social Security for Nazis Act” brought the notoriously divided and stagnant United States Congress together just

Colbert Has a Word About American Prisons (Review)

Stephen Colbert knows that he has a limited amount of time before his tenure as America’s purveyor of Truthiness is over and he is making the most of it. Proudly proclaiming that the show is “good to the last drop,” The Colbert Report featured an interview with Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett, both legendary singers, who were promoting their new album of duets. Together they sang the good old American Standard “Cheek

Colbert Explains ‘Star Wars’ Lightsaber, Talks McCain 2016 (Review)

Stephen Colbert is well known as the nerdiest fanboy around, but last night on his show he explained why he is the ultimate Star Wars fan. He took time out of more serious things like talking to Senator John McCain about 2016 in order to explain why the new lightsaber from the Star Wars trailer is a fantastic piece of weaponry. It was a rare glimpse into the man Stephen Colbert truly is – a

Monday Review: Slate Night TV

  After a weekend’s drought of America’s favorite fake news sources, Comedy Central staples Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert were back in the saddle last night cataloguing the weekend’s (or the last century’s) big events. Stewart took on Congress and their failed immigration bill, all the while pointing out how ineffectual the new “Do-Nothing Congress” has been on the issue. Colbert in his Colbert-iest fashion remembered Nixon on the anniversary
