Donald Trump's legal team made its closing arguments on Tuesday. However, don't expect to hear Stephen Colbert's reaction to the historic day in court.

Former President Donald Trump has spent weeks in a New York City courtroom facing charges related to an alleged hush money payment made to Stormy Daniels. Trump's antics in and out of the trial have made headlines, as he ranted about the judge, reportedly fell asleep, and listened to embarrassing details about his personal life openly discussed.

But on Tuesday, his lawyers made their final pitch to why the ex-president did nothing wrong. The Late Show with Stephen Colbert has covered every major moment of Trump's trial. Unfortunately, that streak ends on Tuesday night.

There will not be a new episode of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert tonight. The show is on its annual holiday hiatus following Memorial Day. That means we won't get to hear Colbert's take on the closing arguments ... for now.

How long will Stephen Colbert be gone? And when will The Late Show return?

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is scheduled to be off for the remainder of the week. CBS will air reruns during the show's normal timeslot beginning tonight and running through Friday.

Tuesday night will see a replay of the May 8 episode. Former White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki sat down for a chat. Elyanna appeared as the musical guest that night.

Expect The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to return on Monday, June 3. The rest of late-night TV is also slated to return that night following a hiatus at the unofficial start of the summer.

Colbert's return at the start of June could mean he's discussing a verdict in the Donald Trump case. The jury will deliberate beginning on Wednesday, May 29. Depending on how quickly they reach a decision could determine what Colbert's monologue covers on Monday.
