What should The Late Show with Stephen Colbert fans expect to see tonight on CBS?

Late-night television fans are running out of time to hear from Stephen Colbert this week. Is tonight the night Stephen Colbert returns with a new episode?

It certainly feels like the right time. President Donald Trump is staging more rallies, the Senate is fighting over a Supreme Court justice nominee, and both presidential candidates are set to hold town hall-style events on television tonight.

It’s the kind of busy news week where The Late Show is at its best. Tonight was originally set to be the second debate between President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden. It would have likely ended with another live post-debate edition of The Late Show.

Is The Late Show with Stephen Colbert new tonight?

Unfortunately, there will be no live-post debate show tonight. In fact, there will be no new episode of The Late Show at all.

Colbert and his team have been off all night. That won’t change tonight. Instead, CBS will reair the Sept. 29 episode that followed the first presidential debate. Fans can revisit Colbert’s interview with Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey and see a performance by Public Enemy.
