After the star-studded "We'll Meet Again" singalong and the sleigh ride into eternity with Santa, the Colbert Report rolled credits for the final time with Neutral Milk Hotel's "Holland, 1945" playing in the background. It may have seemed a strange choice, but it's one with personal significance to Stephen Colbert.
With the Colbert Report coming to an end, Stephen Colbert can do whatever the hell he wants, including selling the naming rights to the show to his new beverage sponsor, Dewar's Scotch. If you liked the Colbert Report, you'll love the ColbDewar's Repewars. Especially the new open, which Colbert cannot stop laughing at.
Bill O'Reilly is extremely unhappy that Stephen Colbert crapped all over his terrible plan to defeat ISIS with "an anti-terror mercenary force paid for by coalition nations." The conservative host responded to the conservative host parody on Monday in a segment he called "How to Deal With Dumb People."
Actor/Ph.D candidate James Franco was on the Colbert Report last night to promote his movie opening this week, Child of God, and generally just act like James Franco. Whatever. You can skip everything until the very end of the interview, where Franco slyly tries to get an in-character Stephen Colbert to discuss his impending move to The Late Show.
Daft Punk were supposed to headline the Colbert Report's annual StePhest Colbchella and play the "song of the summer," "Get Lucky." (That must have seemed slightly more plausible as the actual song of the summer a month ago, when the duo were booked.) However, because they had a deal with MTV for a surprise appearance on August 25's Video Music Awards, President of MTV Networks Music & Logo Group at Viacom, Inc., Van Toffler stepped in and put the kibosh on the Colbert Report appearance, citing contractual exclusivity.
On tonight's Colbert Report, Stephen Colbert laid his heart on the table and was very upfront about how it had been broken by Chief Justice John Roberts today. With his vote swinging the Supreme Court's ruling, Roberts didn't just uphold Obamacare, he destroyed Colbert and a few other Republicans as well.
