It’s the start of a brand new week and late night television fans are hoping for a brand new week of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. What should fans expect to see tonight on CBS?

Stephen Colbert spent last week covering the biggest stories, including the latest round of gun control debate, spring break raging in Miami Beach, and the cargo ship stuck in the Suez Canal.

On top of that, The Late Show featured entertaining interviews with Dana Carvey, Robert Downey, Jr., and Ken Burns. All in all, it was a typical week for late night TV’s most popular show.

Those highlights will remain the latest content from the show, however. There will not be a new episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight.

Instead, CBS will reair the March 17 episode. Audiences will get the chance to catch Colbert’s interviews with Magic Johnson and Eric Andre.

What to watch instead of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert

The repeat of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is indicative of what late night TV audiences can expect across the board tonight with a few exceptions. Shows like Late Night with Seth MeyersThe Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, and Conan will also be reruns.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! will carry the load tonight. The ABC late night show has a brand new episode scheduled featuring Lil Rel Howery, Wyatt Russell, and Jazmine Sullivan. Catch the show at 11:35 p.m. ET on ABC.

But if you prefer The Late Show, you still have options. You can stream content from the show on Paramount+ and you can check out its official YouTube channel for monologues, interviews, and web exclusives.
