On The Late Show with Stepen Colbert last night, Trevor Noah switched jobs with Stephen Colbert to interview him, one The Daily Show alum to another. I actually watch very little late night these days outside of Seth Meyers’ clips, but I still dig some good late-night inside baseball, and here Trevor Noah gets some insight into what Stephen Colbert was thinking when his show launched and immediately struggled.
“Initially, when reviews came out,” Trevor Noah says, “they were like, ‘Stephen Colbert has lost it. He should’ve stayed at his old show. He doesn’t have it.”
“They weren’t that harsh,” Colbert says.
“I remember they were that harsh. You know why I remember? Because they were similar to my reviews. That’s why I remember them.”
“Oh yeah, yeah,” Colbert quips. “I remember those.”
And if that exchange is not worth checking this out, perhaps where Colbert says, “F*ck you,” to Trevor Noah because he’s had J.Lo on twice, and she still hasn’t appeared on The Late Show will tempt you into clicking play.
