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

It’s Christmas week and while most people may not be as busy this year, there is still a lot to do before December 25. What does that mean for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert?

Christmas came early for Stephen Colbert when President Donald Trump lost his reelection bid. The Late Show has conveyed that it’s ready to move on from its nightly coverage of the Trump administration and celebrated the victory by President-elect Joe Biden.

There is still a little time left before President Trump officially leaves office, meaning that Colbert has a little time left to get in a few more punchlines. Just don’t expect to see any new ones tonight.

There will not be a new episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight. Instead, CBS will reair the Nov. 19 show featuring LL Cool J, Dave Grohl, and a performance by Foo Fighters.

We know that it may be a little disappointing to not have The Late Show to start your week off right tonight. So to make up for it, we’re looking back at a classic Christmas moment from Stephen Colbert to offer some holiday cheer.

First Lady Melania Trump didn’t go the past four years without her fair share of controversies. Everyone remembers the infamous jacket and some recent recordings made public weren’t exactly flattering.

The First Lady’s Christmas decorations at the White House were always a topic of debate. Whether she deserved it or not, Melania Trump was criticized for her design choices.

Back in 2017, Stephen Colbert gave the First Lady the chance to not only discuss her Christmas decorations but also respond to comments from her husband’s ex-wife. It was another memorable performance by Laura Benanti:
