Stephen Colbert Crashed 'The Daily Show' Last Night to Announce that He'd Won Television

By Dustin Rowles | Videos | April 24, 2014 | Comments ()


Stephen Colbert — in character — crashed The Daily Show last night to announce that he’s ending The Colbert Report after it had become clear to him that “he’d won television.”

“Nine years ago, we promised to change the world, and together, I did it.” He also said that Letterman’s being replaced by “some fat guy.”

I’m really going to miss that character.

After The Daily Show, Colbert also pledged his allegiance to HYDRA on The Colbert Report. I KNEW IT. I think I may root for HYDRA now.

    While the bit with Stephen & Jon was funny, I found it a bit perfunctory. The good-bye to John Oliver felt much more heartfelt and significant. Maybe just me.

    Since Colbert hasn't been on the show as a regular in 8+ years, and since his show isn't actually ending for a seems appropriate.

    Captain America died in the comics in one of the Marvel Universes years ago, and Colbert was bequeathed his shield. It hangs on the wall in his studio. That second clip is from back then.

    Here's a screen shot from Monday's opening credits of The Colbert Report:

    That was a lovely moment between Colbert and Stewart.

    I can't believe I missed that Hail Hydra. that's what I get for multi-tasking.

  • You didn't miss it. That second clip is seven years old.

    In the opening credits to Monday's show HAIL HYDRA appears behind Stephen. But I was wondering where the Captain America clip came from. I don't remember him dying recently.

    I WONDERED WHAT THAT MEANT. Especially since it has said "Love Me!" the past few days.

    I was scratching my head and trying to figure out what the gag was. Turns out I never would have figured it out.
