The Late Show with Stephen Colbert picked up the Primetime Emmy for Outstanding Variety Special (Live) on Sunday night. So what should fans expect to see on Monday?
Stephen Colbert accepted the award on behalf of the CBS late-night TV show. He thanked Ted Lasso and Last Week Tonight with John Oliver for not being in the same category, thus ensuring The Late Show would bring home the award.
With Colbert and company knowing they’d be in Los Angeles on Sunday for the Emmys, the New York-based show prepared something special for Monday night. Don’t expect a brand new episode of The Late Show like you’re used to. Instead, CBS will air “The Late Show‘s Celebration of Season 6: This TIme with Laughs.”
Season 6 wrapped up back in August and was followed by an extended summer break by The Late Show. Expect a look back at some of the more memorable moments from a season that saw Colbert working from a converted storage closet before eventually reopening the Ed Sullivan Theater.

Some fans surely won’t be too happy to see another episode with old material. But this one was a little more expected given the Emmys on Sunday night.
The award show was dominated by Ted Lasso and The Crown. Many fans, including John Oliver, hoped to see Conan O’Brien take home an award following the end of his late-night run. Saturday Night Live also picked up another Emmy.
In the category of Outstanding Variety Special (Live) it was The Late Show with Stephen Colbert that heard its name called. The show won for its election night coverage. Check out the acceptance speech below, featuring a Conan cameo:
