The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will not air tonight, nor at all this week. As usual, along with a number of other late night shows, the host will take a short summer break for some time before returning to the Ed Sullivan Theatre.
The show will go on a short hiatus for two weeks until the 18th of July. Until then, CBS will continue to show reruns of previously aired episodes from the year so far.
What will replace the usual live taping of the Late Show?
Tonight, the late night show will air a rerun of it’s episode with guests, Bob Woodward, Carl Bernstein and Bonnie Raitt.
Throughout the week, Colbert’s interviews with Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, Robert De Niro, to name a few, will make a second appearance at the same timeslot.
The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Live are also expected to air reruns throughout the week.
Colbert has left his desk amidst a busy climate for political news, with recent news announcing that the January 6th hearings will continue into this month.
Viewers can rest assured however as we can expect Colbert to chime in occasionally via social media on any takes he may have on the news cycle whilst on vacation.
Colbert will also likely be relieved to take some time out of the spotlight after making headlines earlier this month after members of his production crew were arrested close to the Capitol Building last month. Whilst the host dismissed claims they had overstretched their authority whilst taping segments for the show, the CBS host’s television rivals made sure to make harsh comment.
Catch the return of the Late Show on July 18th.
