Some people had a day off to start the week, including those at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. But should fans expect to see the late-night show back to work on Tuesday?

Monday was Indigenous Peoples Day and Columbus Day, meaning some work schedules were adjusted. The Late Show aired a repeat as Stephen Colbert and company took a night off. It was the first in a while after a summer filled with off nights.

Unfortunately, fans shouldn’t look for anything to change on Tuesday. There will not be a brand new episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight. Monday’s off night was more than just a holiday.

Instead, CBS will reair the September 23 episode. Fans can revisit Colbert’s interview with Anderson Cooper. Musician John Mayer also stopped by the show.
