The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has been on top of Donald Trump’s legal issues from the start. So what should fans expect to see tonight on CBS?
On Thursday evening, news broke that a grand jury voted to indict former President Donald Trump on charges related to hush money payments. It sounds like the kind of consequences Stephen Colbert has been begging to see over the past few years.
The good news is that there is a brand new episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight. The bad news is that the Trump story may have broken too late for Colbert to cover it on tonight’s episode.
The New York-based Late Show typically films around 5:30, which is the same time that news outlets broke the Trump indictment story. Therefore, it’s unlikely Colbert and his team had time to throw out the monologue and restart from scratch.
However, there is a chance that we’ll see how Colbert reacted to the news in real time. Perhaps The Late Show has footage of the late-night host hearing about the indictment just like everyone else did.
Who’s on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight?
Regardless, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert will likely have something to say about Donald Trump at the top of the show. After that, it’s time for the guests.
First up, Colbert will interview actress Brooke Shields. She’ll discuss her new Hulu documentary, Pretty Baby: Brooke Shields.
Then, poet Clint Smith joins The Late Show. He’ll cover his new collection of poems, Above Ground.
The show rounds out with a performance by singer Weyes Blood. Her latest album is And in the Darkness, Hearts Aglow.
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert airs tonight at 11:35 p.m. ET on CBS.
