The 4th of July holiday has come and gone. We’ve reached the start of a new week so does that mean a new episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert?

Stephen Colbert has been keeping busy since the summer began. A live studio audience is back in the Ed Sullivan Theater and Colbert remains on top of his game. It doesn’t hurt that the GOP and Donald Trump continue to feed his monologue new material.

But fans will have to wait a while before they hear anything new from Colbert. There will not be a new episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight. Like much of the country, the late night show is observing the holiday on Monday with a night off.

Instead, CBS will reair the Late Show episode from June 15. It allows fans another chance to watch appearances by Dr. Sanja Gupta and Rita Moreno.
