The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will mark the one-year anniversary of the novel coronavirus pandemic tonight with a special episode. Stephen Colbert will be joined by Dr. Anthony Fauci.

The special episode is titled “A Late Show Quaranniversary Special: The Year That Took 100 Years But Was Also Somehow One Long Day.” Fans should expect Colbert to not only look at the tragedy and devastation brought on by the pandemic but also look at the moments of inspiration.

The Late Show will be the latest show in the genre to note the pandemic’s anniversary with a special event episode. Jimmy Kimmel Live! interviewed Pete Buttigieg and gave out the Zoomy Awards while The Daily Show with Trevor Noah produced a special remote learning episode.

Tonight, Colbert will be joined by the man thrust into the global spotlight by the pandemic. Dr. Anthony Fauci will make his The Late Show debut to reflect on what we’ve lost, how far we’ve come, and what to expect moving forward.

Anyone familiar with Colbert’s perspective on the pandemic knows that we’re in for an entertaining, inspiring, and emotional episode. The Late Show host has struck a nice balance between humor and humanity when covering the pandemic over the past year.
