Stephen Colbert makes Late Show debut
STEPHEN COLBERT hosted his first “Late Show” yesterday, and it was fine. He didn’t re-invent the wheel or anything, but he’s more than capable, and there were some awesome moments . . .
The show started with a montage of Colbert with random people, singing the National Anthem. The clip ends in a baseball field, where it started. The umpire takes off his mask, and it’s JON STEWART, who yells “Play ball!”
There was also a bit where Colbert was flipping through the channels on his new video screen, and he came up on “The Tonight Show”. Then he and JIMMY FALLON had a little conversation about each other’s guests for the night.
They wrapped it up with Jimmy telling Stephen he’d see him in the late-night locker room . . . and, at the very end of the show, they did just that.
(You may recall that Colbert also appeared on Fallon’s first show . . . and when everyone else came out to pay off their $100 bets for saying Jimmy would never host “The Tonight Show”, Colbert paid his with a bucket of pennies.)
