Meghan McCain’s body language screams “I’M NERVOUS!” yet she seems... nervous. I know, completely contradictory but that’s the only way I can think to describe it. She’s much more likable. 

MM was beyond nervous - she was insufferable.  Besides being stuffed into that very ill-fitting red outfit, she was speaking in her most elitist voice.  GAHHHH.  When she first bounced out, she reminded me of that purposely annoying character in Frasier named Poppy, the daughter of the station owner, who co-incidentally was blond and wearing red.

Still talking out of both sides of her mouth:  On The View, she defends trump, here she says she wants to see her father go up against him.  Then, in talking about her wedding she says "Nobody drank a lot during the reception, which I was happy about." and then went on to say "I wanted my wedding to be like a drunk party."  A woman of contradiction, to be sure...

I will never ever find that vile, uninformed, willfully ignorant creature likeable. Because she's not. She puts on different faces depending on who the crowd is. Lemme guess, she didn't give any stank eye to the audience?

It definitely came off as very fake and trying to be likable. It was cute for the moment but I’m not easily deceived; it was an obvious act. This has to be some sort of damage control. Stephen Colbert is the anti-Trump, late night Liberal she claims to despise on The View.

And yup, she was all smiles during this interview.

LMAO! Even her entrance screamed, “a nervous hot mess.” The crowd barely clapped. Did you catch how far she was sitting on the edge of her seat?

OMG, that comment about wanting her dad to get better just to stand up to Trump really pissed me off. She rarely brings up her dad standing up to Trump on The View. A woman of contradiction is an understatement. Yeah, laugh and kiss up to Colbert and his audience all you want, Meghan. And then she tried to blame her going off on Joy during political discussions because she hasn’t had her latte yet. She’s fake, plain and simple.

Loved seeing Oliver on there. His reaction to Stephen asking whether "kiss the ring" meant something else in England was hilarious. And I liked Oliver's commentary on the royal family, too. So glad Oliver's show will be back soon.

Stephen talking about the Quincy Jones interviews cracked me up! I badly needed that, with the way the news is going. Poor Jon! Caught between horrified and incredulous, he just had to laugh, too.

I loved Jon's face, too, during that. And I liked how Stephen kept building up each new revelation in the interview, with how he was all, "But that's not the most shocking moment..." "And that's still not the biggest bombshell!"

Now I know why people adore Nathan Lane. 

Yeah, that's what I came away with. Damn, but he's quick on his feet. And seems pretty endearing and charismatic as well. I imagine he takes control of any room he walks into.

That's me too. I never watched The Colbert Report, and the launch of this show was just kinda....there. But ever since the election, it's become must see. Especially the monologue. (Guest interviews, to me, depends on the viewers personal interest in the guest).

I don't have a clever title for this thread, but I was just enjoying a Real News Tonight segment from last week's repeats and wanted to comment that it's consistently one of my favourites. Jim Anchorton and Jill Newslady are so soothing and determined to please. 

First Drafts doesn't always work for me but I loved the most recent Valentine's cards. The Amor/Amour/Amore card especially tickled my sense of humour.

What else is there? Covetton House, Big Furry Hat, Midnight Confessions . . .

I like Midnight Confessions and the Furry Hat (I guess the common theme there is random thoughts and one liners).

l think Covetton House is popular around here, but that one doesn't really do it for me.

Heh. I'm the opposite. I don't really like either the Big Furry Hat or Midnight Confessions segments.

I miss the show when it's not on, like last week, and then it wasn't on again tonight. I feel like my night is missing something.

Me, too. He's part of my daily coping mechanism! I went to YouTube to rewatch his interview with Nathan Lane. I love that it was the first time they'd met, and within five minutes they were doing perfectly timed sips of water together. Comedy geniuses.

okay, so this is going to be shallow -- very shallow. and before i start, let me say that i fully understand how unfair it is that women are judged on how we look and what we wear. however...

last night, as i was watching kirsten gillibrand on colbert last night, i was so distracted by her appearence i could hardly concentrate on what she was saying. she looked as though she had dressed for a funeral -- and she just doesn't have the stuff to pull off all black with panache -- but her jacket was so ill-fitting that was all i could see. for fuck sake: look in the mirror before buying an outfit; if it doesn't fit properly, get it tailored -- or keep looking.

Actually, I prefer my US Senators to be more concerned with representing my interests than appearing sexy or otherwise attractive on television. Senator Gilliabrand is hardworking and serious and represents her State quite well.  And by the way, nobody ever discusses what Chuck Shumer is wearing.

agreed that we don't discuss what men wear. believe i mentioned that in my initial post.

but most men appearing on television wear suits that have been tailored to fit them properly. her jacket fit her so badly that it actually distracted me from paying attention what she was saying. which was the point of my comment.

Same here. I always get disappointed when I realize the show is a replay.

Okay, the little girl with the Girl Scout cookies was adorable :D. Loved Glover being all, "I'll take all 113 orders!", too. Also, during the opening monologue, something about Stephen's impression of somebody from a candle place or whatever it was (blanking on the name at the moment) using a flamethrower really cracked me up .

Interesting interview with Omarosa. I liked Stephen's comment about how if his best friend (his wife) were president tomorrow, he'd feel better :).

Regarding last night's show, how about that clip of the Utah politicians doing their "bill rap" to the "Fresh Prince" theme? Jon Batiste's reaction was pretty much mine :p. That was...wow.

She's appalling and a raging narcissist. Her saying that her being in the position she was in at the White House got her on LSSC made me so angry. She talked out of both sides of her mouth. "Trump has been my friend for 15 years," but "We should be worried about what he tweets, and "Leaving the White House was like leaving a plantation." She's a disgrace.

You can leave the WH voluntarily. On the plantation, generally you'd be stuck there, against your will, probably raped, beaten, and starved, and would potentially have your children taken away and sold. So yeah, the WH is bad, but it's not comparable to a plantation. She got paid very well for being there.

Colbert’s trip to Capitol Hill to “investigate the investigation” gave me major Colbert Report/Daily Show with Jon Stewart vibes. I loved it so much! I smiled throughout the entire segment. It was hilarious

Stephen absolutely excels at interviewing away from the desk. I wish he did more of it. (One of my favorites was his interview with Maurice Sendak (of "Where the Wild Things Are" fame) from the Colbert Report. I recommend looking it up if you've never seen it). But the ones he has done on this show have been good as well. I nearly always laugh. Out loud. I loved the carpet bit and "I mean this as a compliment--you look dead inside." Please do more of these types of interview, Stephen!

Yes, but the desk interviews I've seen have been mostly duds. I wonder if it has more to do with the unrehearsed nature of the desk interviews, or if the format is deadening as well.

Omarosa: thinks she’s clever, charming, smart & relevant. Is not.

Colbert: is all of these things.

omarosa & Mango Mussolini just live for the fact they can now say ‘when I was in the White House...’. Damn it all.

Thank you all for reminding me why I do not want to watch this Omarosa interview. I watched the first season (only!) of The Apprentice—and now recall vowing not just to never watch the show again, but also never to watch Omarosa again. I would feel sorry for SC for having to have her on his show except that he could not only afford to quit anytime, but he would also easily get another satisfying gig. For that matter, I'm sure he could have had a guest host for the week she was on. Heh, maybe he's now wishing he did. Or at least vowing to never interview her again.

Omarosa is FULL OF SHIT.

I’m glad Stephen kept after her for an answer and all she could do was cackle, pivot and not answer. I’m glad the audience boo’d her “we have to wait and see” because she was all “everyone will bow down on their knees” to 45.

The idea that Nunes thinks a comedian like Colbert is more dangerous than the people running around the actual White House is both hilarious and depressing all at the same time. Get a clue, Nunes.

I don't know if this means there is or was any link between CBS and Penguin, but according to this Wikipedia entry (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simon_%26_Schuster#1990s) on the history of Simon & Schuster:

Quote

In 1994, Paramount was sold to the original Viacom, allowing [Simon & Schuster] to launch several new imprints in conjunction with channels owned by Viacom's MTV Networks. Simon & Schuster's first move under Viacom was the acquisition of Macmillan USA.…

In 1998, Viacom sold Simon & Schuster's educational operations, including Prentice Hall and Macmillan, to Pearson PLC, the global publisher and then owner of Penguin and the Financial Times…
