The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will be live tonight after the vice presidential debate

Stephen Colbert continues to be one of the hardest-working people on television. Tonight, The Late Show will be live following the first vice presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris.

Colbert will continue his tradition of going live after major political events. He did it following each night of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions as well as after the first presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Mike Pence.

Going live allows The Late Show to have the first crack at what is guaranteed to lead off every other late-night television show. Things are unlikely to go off the rails like they did in Trump vs. Biden but it should be no less entertaining to hear Colbert give his immediate reaction.

Tonight, voters can tune in to hear Vice President Pence and Sen. Harris go head-to-head on the issues. The debate starts at 9:00 p.m. Eastern and is expected to cover topics including the economy and COVID-19 pandemic.

What to expect on tonight’s live Late Show with Stephen Colbert

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will air on CBS at its normal 11:35 p.m. timeslot. That will be about an hour after the debate ends, giving Colbert and his writers just enough time to polish off his monologue.

Helping Colbert break down the performances by Vice President Pence and Sen. Harris will be his interview guest. Former South Bend, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg will join The Late Show and offer his insight on the debate.

Vice President Pence will be in the hot seat as he’ll have to answer for how the Trump administration has handled the pandemic. Keep an eye out for how much Colbert piles on after or if the Late Show host keeps the finger pointed at President Trump.

Colbert hasn’t taken it easy on Sen. Harris just because the comedian is hoping change comes to the White House. During a previous Late Show interview, he pressed Sen. Harris on how she treated Vice President Biden during the debate compared to how quickly she would jump at the chance to be his running mate.
