Aloha, Stephen Colbert ... and aloha, Stephen Colbert!
Stephen Colbert hung up his Captain America shield after the season finale of The Colbert Report, then moved on to playing the role of himself on The Late Show. But in these trying times, we need a TV show egotist.Read More
Ladies and gentlemen and everyone in between, welcome to the 58th annual Hungry for Power Games.
I'm having a real hard time telling the difference between The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report these days.Read More
Jon, but not forgotten.
As the news was breaking online last night that Jon Stewart will be leaving Comedy Central soon after nearly two decades, The Daily Show audience was learning the news first-hand from Stewart himself; and although I'm excited to see what Stewart does next, this clip is a bittersweet reminder of the humor, eloquence, and honesty that I'll miss watching on the regular.Read More
End of an era.
First Stephen Colbert, now this?Read More
Let's all feel good for a minute.
2014 certainly had its ups and downs, didn't it? But as this year comes to a close, let's take some time to focus on some of the ups. Namely, some of the fantastic videos, Twitter hashtags, interviews, and quotes from human beings which actually made us feel good about the state of the world for once.Read More
Just crying truth tears at my desk now, thank you.
After nine years of truthiness and patriotic rigor, Stephen Colbert signed off The Colbert Report last night in one of the most flawless TV finales I can ever remember seeing.Read More
Never laugh at a live dragon, mothaf***a.
Among other things, Smaug also believes that his negative portrayal in the media is due to a liberal Hollywood bias, calls out the dragon triplets from Game of Thrones, invokes the Stand Your Ground law while defending his attempted murder of Bilbo Baggins, corrects Colbert's pronunciation of his name, and calls Benedict Cumberbatch a hack. What a most specially greedy, strong and wicked worm.Read More
Stephen Colbert Wants You to Stop Saying the New Lightsaber Crossguard Is Pointless, Here’s a Perfectly Good Explanation
Nation, we need to talk.
For 90 seconds of footage—or actually about 60 if you cut out the MPAA approval, blank screen, and closing logo—people sure have spent lot of time talking about the Force Awakens trailer and the lightsaber crossguard (AKA the menage à sabre). But Stephen Colbert finds your lack of suspension of disbelief disturbing, so here he is laying out his nerd cred for a lesson in lightsabers.Read More
Wait. Those "regular" news shows aren't just elaborate jokes?
Buried in a survey on whether or not most of the public in the United States opposes Internet fast lanes—they do, by the way—is a fun little chart showing viewers of which news programs felt they'd heard the most about net neutrality. Surprise! The Daily Show, The Colbert Report, and Last Week Tonight are by far the top three. Go ahead and have a big belly laugh over Jon Stewart insisting he wasn't real news on Crossfire all those years ago.Read More
Creator of Feminist Frequency Anita Sarkeesian surprised us late Wednesday by tweeting this photo of herself sitting at the famous desk of The Colbert Report. Sure enough, just a few hours later she sat with Stephen Colbert himself to discuss the Gamergate movement and online harassment. And The Mary Sue has the video in case you missed it.Read More

Well, at least they went with a giant nerd this time.
Just yesterday Marvel made a splash when they announced Thor would be replaced by a woman (and keep his moniker) in an upcoming title. They've just revealed there will be another announcement tonight, this time on The Colbert Report.Read More
We got a front of TESTOSTERONE AND TERROR moving in from my fists...
In response to a controversial study released Monday that shows hurricanes with female names claim more lives, Stephen Colbert has devised a plan to prevent bias and stupidity from killing people this storm season. Enter Butch McBalls, Magnus Van Thundercrotch, and the Condo Killer—all of which technically are gender-neutral, right?Read More
There must be something in all that Earl Grey tea.
What if Gandalf, Professor X, Magneto, and Harry Potter joined forces? We'll never know, because the Harry Potter people didn't call Patrick Stewart or Ian McKellen to offer them a part in the movie franchise. It's OK, Patrick Stewart. The wounds will heal with time, which you've got plenty of — being that you're immortal and all.Read More
He is The Late Show, and so can we.
Things have been moving pretty quickly since David Letterman announced his retirement last week, and though we're excited about Stephen Colbert as his replacement, it's sad to see Letterman go. No one feels this bittersweet emotion more than Stephen Colbert, and no one can express it quite like him, either.Read More

Given that some of those made over the past week are actually quite good, they really deserve their own roundup. Hit the jump to check out the seven best Harlem Shake videos the Internet's produced since last week.Read More
