    I admit that I was really wondering if I was going to like "the real" Stephen Colbert when he took over 'The Late Show.' Now I can say, without a doubt, that my fears were 100 percent wrong. The "real" Stephen Colbert is pretty much the same person as his character. Actually--I think he's even better just being himself.

    After watching Colbert's first episode last night I now might actually watch a late night show on one of the big three networks for the first time in years. He spent a handful of minutes just obliterating Donald Trump and then showed that he can interview movie stars and politicians without having to stay in character throughout the interview. The show ended with a hell of a musical performance by his house band, Jonathan Batiste and Stay Human, with a whole bunch of big name cameos.

    All in all, I'd say that Colbert had a great first show. I'm looking forward to see how the show evolves as he gets more used to the hour long format. After last night, I have a feeling he won't have many issues getting in his groove.

But I almost stopped episode 5 halfway through just because it doesn't compel whatsoever. At least not to me. But I kept with it, and will do so until the end just hoping that the writing surprises me in some kind of cool way at the end. Here's hoping..
    You and me both. I am really disappointed with this season, especially after having such high hopes following Season 1. I now find myself looking at my watch and waiting for the episode to be over with. I keep hoping that it will get better, but that never seems to happen.

And I'll beat they told everyone they knew how they were going to be on TV and to tune in... don't think many people get REELZ. Is that even a tv station, or just an online thing?

    Yea, it does suck for the contestants involved. They didn't do anything wrong yet are the ones being penalized for it.

    I understand why NBC dropped the pageant from their program, but it still seems really unfair to the women who were set to be on national television and then all of a sudden find themselves on REELZ. I have never heard of it before, but I guess it is a national cable channel.

    That is one hell of an interesting lineup. I can't say I like any one of them, but talk about having a concert that represents the exact opposite ends of the spectrum!

    This means June 11th will be OITB Season 2 binge watching day for me. I need to make sure I'm all up to speed after not watching it for an entire year.

    I'm really looking forward to this season. I have no doubt that it will be awesome.

    Yes, it promotes sexist stereotypes but honestly, if women want to do that and aren't being forced or pressure to do so, then more power to them. That is their choice, and I'm behind it.

    But personally, I don't find it entertaining at all. And it's just as corrupt as most entertainment industries, like NCAA and FIFA etc.

    I couldn't have said it better.

    I sure hope he comes back! I have loved him since his days on SNL. It was tough watching him become so emotional during that interview. Seeing someone who has made you laugh for so many years in that light is upsetting.

    I just saw this story this morning and have to admit that I am highly skeptical of the accusations. King was 89 years old and had been battling Type II Diabetes for decades. It's not that far of a stretch to believe that he eventually succumbed to it.

    My guess, and I have to stress this is my opinion, is that these daughters are angling for control of his estate and the millions of dollars that comes with it. None of his children are executors of his will and accusing the executor of murder seems to be a desperate attempt to wrest control of his estate, which was not the late artists wishes.

    Like I said, this is just my opinion, but children of celebrities who die almost always fight over the amount of assets they will get, especially if they have no control over how it is all doled out.

    The countdown is now officially on after David Letterman's final show last night. I am really looking forward to Stephen Colbert's premier in early September. It will be nice to see him back on the air after nearly a year off.

    That was a great interview. I was really taken aback when he talked about grateful he is for Jon Stewart.

    “[Jon Stewart] literally taught me how to do everything I am doing now. All the things I’m doing are the direct result of lessons I was taught by him.”

    and

    “I think it’s pretty much an objective fact I owe him everything… all I’m doing now is using the muscles he gave me.”


    That was touching to hear him speak so openly and candidly about that. It's not something you hear often from people who "make it" in show business.
