Gillibrand is my Senator and I've never really liked her.  I didn't like the way she kept talking about bipartisanship, it was her answer to everything. 

I have no personal opinion about her, but I would advise her against referring to herself as a "young mother."  She's 52, which isn't old, but it's not young as US mothers go.  Her younger child is 11, so she is the mother of a relatively young child, but mothers in their 20's and 30's are not going to consider her one of them, and she shouldn't try to be.

I can't stand him. Stop booking him, LSSC!!

Stephen said it was the first time he'd appeared.  Christie is really a glutton for punishment with regard to Trump. He's like the unpopular kid who'd rather be beaten up by the head bully than completely ignored by him.

Stephen missed a huge opportunity when Christie was complaining how long it took him to drive around during the snowstorm, and how the current Governor needed to think of other NJ citizens.  I thought for sure he'd ask him: "How long did it take you to get over the Bridge?"

My dvr cut off 39 minutes of Sunday's episode and my stupid cable provider(Spectrum) apparently doesn't have The Late Show on demand.   I did watch Steven's interview with Conan on youtube.

The entire show is on YouTube. Each segment is posted in order under the day it aired--in this case, February 3. I had the same problem and just watched the show on YouTube.

I have Spectrum in NY and definitely have the Late Show on demand. It sometimes just takes a day or two for the latest episode to be there.  (I skipped yesterday on purpose because I don't care about the Super Bowl.)

I'm in nyc and it wasn't listed in my on demand for CBS.  The Late, Late Show is listed but the Late Show isn't.

CBS.com has it.

CBS.com says I need to subscribe to All-Access to watch it and I'm not doing that.

That's strange. I don't have All Access and I can get a week's worth of Colbert's show for free on CBS.com. I'm not even signed in or anything.

My experience: YouTube has it about an hour after it airs, whereas CBS is the next day--and sometimes (seemingly randomly) I run into the All Access paywall.

That's weird. If it's not just that episode, if you never have the Late Show listed, I would complain to Spectrum/have them reset your signal or something, I've always had it on demand.

 

This is what's supposed to be available on Spectrum.

I love when Colbert does live shows.

For anyone who has some time to spare, this is a fantastic interview from August 2018. The whole thing is great but at around the 2:30 mark he walks us through a typical day for him leading up to the show.

Big, big kudos to Stephen and the writers for coming up with some hilarious material mined from the SOTU, then putting it all together and Stephen performing it in the opening live on tight notice. That's why he's easily the best late night host on television (with all due respect to Ollie with his Emmys).

I checked again tonight and I definitely don't have The Late Show on demand at all.    I should probably call Spectrum and complain but I'm too lazy to call and find out if I can reduce my cable bill.

Meghan McCain... whew. I really, really dislike her and if any of you post on 'The View' thread you're probably very well aware of that.

When she appears on shows with hosts who are left-leaning (Stephen Colbert, Van Jones, Bill Maher), she's very different and by that I mean... if someone were to watch her guest appearance on this show without first seeing her on 'The View,' they probably wouldn't have any issues. As a watcher of both shows I can assure you all: she's not always this composed and calm. On 'The View,' she shrieks, rolls her eyes, huffs and puffs, and is just hard to watch, period.

I have no idea how to get to this show besides browsing for it...hopefully it'll be back up in Topics soon (since right now I get an error message)?

Anyway, I laughed out loud at Up Close with Glenn Close. I loved the situations Glenn and Stephen gave to each other and thought their reactions were hilarious! The Lord of the Rings mistake one, the passenger on an airplane identifies with your Fatal Attraction character--just the whole thing. I needed that laugh!

I loved that segment, too :D. I wonder how often the "You're in the restroom right at the time they're announcing the category you're nominated for" situation has happened at an awards show? 

And you just know that Stephen has been in that very LOTR situation at some point :p.

This is what I did: Go up to your icon and click on the down arrow next to your name. Select Manage Followed Content. The default is by show and you can change it to Forums for shows you follow with busier threads. You can filter the order to most recent reply.  And then you can bookmark whichever list you prefer, or both.

When I tried that I got another error message. I don't have any options at that Manage Followed Content page. Anyone else have the same issue? I'm sure it's a work in progress so hopefully I don't have to keep trying too long before it's fixed. Also, I hate change.

Here are all the TV Shows listed alphabetically     https://forums.previously.tv/shows/

When you select a TV show (I like of right click and select a new window) go to the top of the page and select the blue flag/banner like object that asks you how you want to follow the TV show.  Then I close the window and repeat the process.

After selecting all the shows you want to follow go to     https://forums.previously.tv/

There will be 2 buttons near the top that say "My Homepage" and "PTV Homepage"

Clicking "My Homepage" shows all the shows you are following

You can also go to the very top right icon (3 horizontal lines) click on Account > Settings > Default Homepage Tab (last button at bottom) select "My Homepage" and when you go to     https://forums.previously.tv/     it will always show "My Homepage" as default.

"My Homepage" shows any of your followed TV Shows that have added new content highlighted Yellow then click on them and the new content will be placed at the top (based on how recently updated) and will be bold highlighted.

I was taken aback when Henry Louis Gates was talking about "book of life".

Each year for Rosh Hashanah, Jews ask to be written (by God) into the Book of Life for the following year. It's a traditional prayer and even a greeting used during the period between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur: May you be inscribed in the Book of Life. It's actually a major part of the entire religious tradition, basically the most sacred part of the year and the most serious.

I understand that he was taking it from a different context, but it still seemed quite insulting to appropriate it for something as mundane as a geneaology report.

I understand Stephen's frustration over government negotiations to prevent another shutdown. But I wish he wouldn't bring up the Both Sides™ meme when assessing blame. One party wants to run the country like adults, and the other, by way of their babyboy in chief, really couldn't give a fuck if they wanted.

They slipped up with the Bradley Cooper interview yesterday. They obviously taped it earlier in the week and Bradley Cooper forgot that it was being aired on Thursday. Yikes!

I got to go to a taping last year and we ended up sitting through Stephen doing the interviews for two shows.

I didn't even notice that Bradley's yesterday and Stephen's Sunday were the same day because they switched between talking about the BAFTAs ("yesterday") and the Grammy Awards ("Sunday") and I just imagined that Bradley Cooper might have had to be in England for several days. 

Whenever Stephen gratuitously mentions the day of the week it's supposed to be I just assume he is ironically alluding to the fact that they were taping on a different day. It doesn't often come up in interviews but every once in a while Stephen will say something to adjust whatever the guest said to match the broadcast date. And I feel like the implication is that it's okay if we know that they must have taped on a different night as long as within the show they say all the Thursday words even if they wink while doing it.

Jeff Goldblum's "quirkiness" seems to be headed into age-related neurological issues to me. ☹️ I hope I'm wrong.
His singing with John Baptiste's piano noodling was nice, even if so brief as to seem to be for the purpose of showing off.

Hi everyone! 

Today’s show was fantastic. It was my first show. I was kind of disappointed though. We had to stand in the freezing cold for 2 hours before they let us in. Once inside, we used the restrooms and waited another hour. My sister and I got there at 1:30 and were let in lobby around 3:45. 

But it was worth it. We were 5 and 6th on line. When they finally let us into the freezing studio, which is done to keep the audience alert... we sat in the 2nd row, seats 2 and 3 in.. I’m wearing a green turtleneck right in clear close view of Stephen when he does his monologue. 

The studio is smaller but bright and colorful. Loud music is pumping throughout as you wait. Then the warm up comedian came out Paul. He was great. He chose a few members of the audience to come up on stage to rag on but all in good fun. We were given directions then John Baptiste and his band came out and played for 10 minutes. They’re incredible in person. I really dig the horn section. Then Colbert came out. The audience went berserk!!!!

We were very loud. Lol he was taken aback, I’m sure every audience is like that but he said we were a really great audience tonight. He was really sweet off camera. He took some questions from the audience. Then the show began. 

It went pretty smoothly with just a few adjustments and retakes. A really funny show. McCabe interview was interesting and he even crack some jokes, and the musical guest had a catchy song. The band moved the show along in between breaks which usually lasted about 5-7 minutes with solos from the the horn section. 

And like that the show ended. I had a blast and would go again!
