Stephen Colbert has plenty of work left in this election, including a live Showtime special full of all the swears and nudity you like, but you didn’t think Jon Stewart was going to sit out, did you? Watch the former Daily Show and Colbert Report hosts reunite for a voting musical extravaganza, with a touch of Hamilton to boot.

We may have dodged the bullet on How I Met Your Dad, but The Big Bang Theory may not let us off so easily. Ahead of an (expensive) official renewal for Season 11, CBS is moving forward with a Big Bang Theory prequel spinoff, focused on Sheldon’s early days
No one was exactly over the moon for another Kevin James family sitcom, and some recent showrunner shifts for CBS’ Kevin Can Wait can certainly attest to that, but the series will at least get one notable boost. Reports reveal Adam Sandler will take a break from his Netflix deal to guest on his friend’s show, just as he’d done for King of Queens.
Yesterday saw CBS’s Star Trek: Discovery suffer the notable blow of losing showrunner Bryan Fuller at the helm, though with production set to begin next month, cast announcements should nonetheless arrive soon. New reports confirm that the cast will feature a Klingon captain, along with an openly gay actor, new admirals and more.
Star Trek fans eager for a look at CBS’ new Discovery were forgiving of the move from January to May 2017, but is the franchise’s TV return already in trouble? Star attraction Bryan Fuller has apparently stepped down as showrunner, while Akiva Goldsman has joined in a significant role.
The Late Late Show With James Corden is no stranger to running stars through their career history, but if there’s anyone to run anywhere, it’s Tom Cruise. See the Jack Reacher star reenact an impressive span of his iconic movie career for James Corden, and we’ll show you the special guest!
Well, if they can figure out a way to turn Emojis, Fruit Ninja and Angry Birds into movies, it stands to reason one of your phone’s other most popular functions could end up on TV. So it is, that Candy Crush is getting the game show treatment from CBS, with an impressive hour-long format at that.
Say what you will about The Big Bang Theory; dozens of sci-fi and Hollywood icons have dropped by the series to cater toward its geek-friendly audience. Star Trek icon William Shatner apparently felt it beneath him, however, wanting writers to “find something that’s better” than their original pitch.
Star Trek fans have waited years for the franchise to return to TV, and will wait longer still, it seems. Despite CBS initially scheduling the new Discovery series for a January 2017 bow, the newest Star Trek saga has been pushed back to May over production demands.
The fervor for Netflix’s Stranger Things has more or less passed (now that we have a second season to look forward to, anyway), but with the young stars still making press rounds, Stephen Colbert finally got his chance for a late-night parody. Look’s like Eleven’s back to crushing Coke cans in a new Colbert cold open, but with a musical twist.
