Of all the people who showed up to wish Jon Stewart farewell, Stephen Colbert’s heartfelt goodbye was the best tribute of the night. He’s arguably the most successful of the Daily Show alums, and he was the last of the former correspondents to come out and say goodbye to Stewart, using an elaborate Lord of the Rings metaphor and the blowhard persona he developed on The Daily Show.

Jon Stewart signed off on The Daily Show last night, which, barring a surprise retirement from Conan O’Brien, ends a period of turnover in late night television. Over the last few years, all the long-time late night hosts have retired—except for Conan, who not for nothing has always drawn a younger audience than his peers—from Leno, whom no one misses; to Colbert Full Story

Have you watched it yet? If you have time, don’t just get to the Eminem bits. If you have time, put in the entire 40 minutes. I saw it last night before falling asleep, all jacked up from the fireworks that we set off in our backyard for Canada Day, intending to just focus on the Eminem part, so maybe I was just in an extra good mood but the entire episode of Stephen Colbert’s Only In Monroe is delight, so wonderfully absurd and random and better, to me anyway, than only just the good parts of the Ted movies spliced together.

I mean, I’m always attracted to Stephen Colbert… But right now, with his glasses off, and his hair longer like that, and you can see his nose and his cheekbones, so defined… Oh My God. Is there even a little Rob Lowe in his face? THERE IS TOTALLY ROB LOWE IN HIS FACE! And while that won’t break the internet, it is indeed a new discovery. Full Story
Am I allowed to say now that the final episode of Serial was… frustrating? Frustrating is a safe word, right? It’s been frustrating for a few weeks now. I finally gave in and started googling about 10 days ago because I just, you know, like, I dunno, (in Sarah speak), certain questions weren’t being asked. I felt deflated to start the day. And then…by the end of the night…
If we’re talking final episodes, Colbert’s was perfect.
And it’s not because he had so many celebrity guests (Cookie Monster was the best, obviously). You know what I appreciate about Stephen Colbert? Or at the least the version of Colbert that was presented on The Colbert Report, who’s now achieved immortality alongside Santa, Unicorn Lincoln, and Alex Trebek (HAHAHAHA)?
It’s that he was ALWAYS Colbert.
There was no crying. There’s no crying in baseball, and there’s no f-cking crying in satire!
There is, however, a new, exciting question: Who are you now Stephen Colbert? See you in September.
Have a great weekend!
Yours in gossip,
It’s a day for lasts. The last Serial, and tonight, the last episode of The Colbert Report. Tonight Stephen Colbert signs off as his fake-conservative persona and next year, he’ll re-emerge as simply himself, taking over David Letterman’s Late Show. For nine years The Colbert Report has been a late-night comedy staple, but I’m excited to see what Colbert does next. Full Story
If you’re a big media outlet whose sole job is to look cool and hip then you really shouldn’t tangle with a top-notch, widely popular comedian with a big-ass network microphone. That’s a new rule I just made up. Stephen Colbert has been hyping the appearance of Daft Punk on his show, The Colbert Report, for weeks, so imagine the surprise when he opened his show last night and announced that Daft Punk would not be appearing because MTV, a fellow Viacom subsidiary, didn’t want Daft Punk’s surprise appearance at the VMAs in a month’s time to be undermined by them going on a different show beforehand.

Did you go? I’ve heard from a few of you who were there. SO MANY PEOPLE WERE THERE! I would have wanted to be there. But, um, even if I could have been there, I probably would have last minute pussied out of being there because of the toilet situation. I can’t use the portable kind. And I am so neurotic about that sh-t that it would be the only thing on my mind. Full Story
Oscar hosting. He apparently declined the invitation for a second round. According to Variety Hugh Jackman wants to do it again eventually, just not this year. With the HFPA announcing Ricky Gervais as their choice to host the Golden Globes, the first in 15 years, the Academy is now pressing to find a suitable frontperson who can build upon Jackman’s momentum and help avoid a ratings decline.

A world without Stewart and Colbert??? Blasphemy! The new cover of Entertainment Weekly. Amazing. The article opens like this and keeps getting better: In the midst of re-creating the controversial New Yorker cover illustration of Barack and Michelle Obama for the cover photo that graces this week's print edition of Entertainment Weekly, Jon Stewart stops briefly to pose a taste question.

Arguments for:- sounds crazy…but a stunt is a stunt. He just pulled one running for President. Wouldn’t naming him SMA be the ultimate one-up?- Colbert is hilaire… and a sense of humour is the ultimate aphrodisiac- it’s a pre-election year: his political commentary is timely and in some circles, immensely popular Arguments against:- the obvious?
