Dear Gossips,

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,

Lainey

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

Dear Gossips,

"I won't be doing the new show in character, so we'll all get to find out how much of him was me. I'm looking forward to it." – What Stephen Colbert told The New York Times about succeeding David Letterman on Late Night. Apparently there were a lot of people who called for the job the day Letterman announced he was retiring. Colbert was one of them. And when CBS was interested too, he insisted that they clear it with Dave so that he could get Letterman’s blessing. Letterman obliged. At least that’s the story they’re giving the public.

SO curious what Colbert looks like without the “character”. That was probably the most common question yesterday, right? Who IS Stephen Colbert? And can the real Stephen Colbert handle the standard operating procedures that come with network television? He’s pretty selective about the guest content on The Colbert Report.  Read Full Intro

Man, that happened FAST. Kind of makes you think some wheels were already turning, and when, in the wake of David Letterman announcing his retirement the entire nation yelled as one, IT SHOULD BE COLBERT, they cemented a deal that was already in the works. Full Story

MTV vs. Colbert Nation

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. Full Story

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. Full Story

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. Full Story

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? Full Story
