The host teases his Showtime election special in exclusive promo
Allow the smooth baritone of TV personality and known Company cast member Stephen Colbert to ease you into mellowness on this very precarious upcoming election night.
The Late Show host is partnering with Showtime for a live special on election night with a very catchy title: Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going To Clean Up This Shit?. The special airs on Tuesday, Nov. 8 at 11 pm ET/8 pm PT on Showtime, and EW’s got a sneaky, surprisingly sultry tease at the fun.
No, it won’t be broadcast from his bedroom, but the special will bring Colbert the ability to, as Showtime says, “do things he’s never been able to do in this campaign — such as directly quote a candidate without being bleeped.”
A handful of guests will also stop by to break down the election, no matter what the results. The one-hour special airs live with a studio audience from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City.
