Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart together again? Yes please!

Courtesy of Vulture:

Pro tip for anyone who’s been bummed about the absence of Jon Stewart during this election cycle: Make sure to watch Monday’s edition of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. The former host of The Daily Show will appear on Colbert’s CBS 11:35 p.m. program to help kick off two weeks of live editions timed to the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, Vulture has learned exclusively. Exactly what he’ll be doing Monday remains a mystery, at least to prying reporters. (A CBS rep declined to comment.) Colbert is anchoring the Late Show from New York, so it doesn’t seem a stretch to imagine — or maybe the word is “pray” — Stewart will be on location in Cleveland as a correspondent at the RNC. (If so, he’ll almost certainly be spotted by one of the thousands of journalists in town to cover the expected coronation of Donald Trump.) It’s also possible that Stewart’s visit Monday could be nothing more than a quick cameo, as he’s done it before for both the Late Show (on which he serves as an executive producer) and fellow Daily Show colleague Samantha Bee’s Full Frontal. Either way, Jon Stewart + Stephen Colbert + Republican National Convention = is it Monday yet?

I think right now this country desperately needs Jon Stewart to offer his patented brand of snark and on point political satire.

Personally I think it is his patriotic duty to provide, in light of what we are facing in these final months of 2016.

  3. I'll tune in to see Stewart, but Colbert's show just has not worked for me. After several months of wanting to like his show, I finally gave up. The Colbert Report was brilliant, but Colbert has not had the same spark since. He does not do interviews well at all. I know the intent was to do something different, but whatever it was, it hasn't worked for me. Colbert is smart, but his show is not.

      I like Colbert and Kimmel the best on late night! Switch back and forth between the two of them, but find I spend more time w/Colbert!

    Excellent. Two weeks of Stewart and Colbert? I'll stay up late for that.

    But I have to wonder if the RNC would let Stewart in, even with a press pass. I would think if they spotted him they would escort him out. Plus no cameras.

    I would think Stewart will be kicked out of the Republican Convention by Trump! Doesn't make sense they'd let him stay - especially with the 'quiet the media' Trump wants to do if elected POTUS!

    Will be interesting to see what occurs when they see him!

    Jon's one of the best political commentors on television today.
