Now that Netflix’s Full House revival Fuller House will be sticking around for Season 2, it’s time for the inevitable spinoff.

Stephen Colbert was among the first late-night programs to express his emotions over the Friday Paris attacks, tagging a brief announcement (sans audience) at the close of his Friday Late Show. The Monday outing went far more in depth however, staging a heartfelt tribute as Colbert urged viewers to show support in whatever way possible, either french fries or Ratatouille.

Every year, the non sports-inclined among us await the series granted a post-Super Bowl slot, and Stephen Colbert will make history in the process. The Late Show With Stephen Colbert has landed a spot as the first late-night talk series to follow the Super Bowl, and with a live show at that.

Stephen Colbert may be the wildly successful host of a popular late night talk show on a major television network, but that doesn’t change who he really is: a huge nerd. Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson said of Colbert, “I have never met a bigger Tolkien geek in my life.” The Late Show host appeared in The Desolation of Smaug and hosted a Hobbit panel at Comic-Con. But his geek cred is not limited to Middle Earth. Last night, Colbert delivered an impassioned prediction of how Star Wars: The Force Awakens will end, and the funniest thing is, he wasn’t joking.

Many saw the announcement that Donald Trump would drop by Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show as a sign the former SNL player would take bigger swings to compete with Stephen Colbert’s Late Show, but you wouldn’t expect The Donald to shy away from publicity, would you? Week 3 guests of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert have arrived, everyone from Trump, to Hugh Jackman, to Pearl Jam and the Archbishop.

The reviews for Stephen Colbert’s debut as the new Late Show host were mostly positive. Our own Matt Singer said the show got off to a “solid start” as Colbert took over for David Letterman, but the show almost didn’t get off to a start at all. On his second show, Colbert revealed that because of editing and technical glitches, his first episode almost didn’t make it on air.

However notably edited in certain spots, the Late Show With Stephen Colbert premiere garnered near-universal praise, and ratings some 172% above The Late Show one year prior (for now). The broadcast naturally ran along (hence some of the more obvious edits), but CBS has released a much fuller bout of unused material, including that of presidential candidate Jeb Bush.

‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ Is Off to a Solid Start

Who is Stephen Colbert? That was the big question folks wanted answered by the premiere episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Although Colbert’s been a late-night fixture for over a decade, the guy who appeared on The Daily Show and then hosted The Colbert Report for ten seasons was “Stephen Colbert,” a fictional and wildly pompous conservative pundit designed to spoof the actual wildly pompous conservative pundits that rose to prominence along with the Fox News Network. “Colbert” we know. But the “real” Colbert, he’s still a mystery.
