For a network focused on comedy, they sure are welcoming the drama!
As you may have heard, the world of late night TV suffered a sudden loss on Monday when Comedy Central decided to cancel The Nightly Show after just two seasons on the air.
While the news wasn't completely shocking since the Larry Wilmore vehicle is easily the weakest performer in the news satire genre, we were surprised the channel didn't try to save the show somehow before completely giving it the axe.
But we're not alone… Larry himself was just as surprised that the Daily Show spin-off didn't survive to see a Season 3 — and he's blaming the OG series for his own cancellation!
While speaking to Vulture on Tuesday, the comedian admitted that while his ratings weren't necessarily great by any means, that's actually all Trevor Noah's fault, saying:
The law might have a hold on Stephen Colbert — but it's got nothing on Stephen Colbert!
Last week, The Late Show host dusted off his iconic Comedy Central character from The Colbert Report (who has apparently been living in the woods with Jon Stewart all this time) to talk about Donald Trump and the Republican National Convention.
Though fans were overjoyed to see the Champion of America resurrected, it looks like we'll never see the host of The Colbert Report again.
The real Colbert revealed on Wednesday's The Late Show that Comedy Central's legal team is banning his old character from appearing on CBS! He explained:
This is SO great!!
While Colbert was in the midst of discussing — and celebrating — FOX News CEO Roger Ailes' departure from the network after a series of sexual harassment allegations, Stewart popped up from under Colbert's desk!
The two had a HIGHlarious little mini-reunion earlier in the week, but this time the former Daily Show host fell back into his old rhythm, going off on an amazing speech against Donald Trump and some of the right-wing media members — like FOX News' Sean Hannity — who support him.
In perhaps the very best passage of the night, Stewart made clear what so many others have seen about the Republican Party, saying:
On Monday night, the Republican National Convention took place and Stephen Colbert did a special live episode of The Late Show to cover it!
Of course, Stewart was his HIGHlarious self, but Stephen had more tricks up his sleeve as he also sang a song, brought back his Colbert Report character for The Word, and dished a WHOLE lot more about the RNC.
Ch-ch-check out the AH-Mazing clips (below) as we try and forget that Jon's not hosting The Daily Show anymore!
Ever since Jon Stewart left The Daily Show, we haven't really heard much from him.
Thankfully, on Monday, the 53-year-old stopped by David Axelrod's live taping of his podcast, The Axe Files, and chatted it up about what's going on with both the election and politics in the U.S.
One of the obvious big talking points was Trump as Stewart didn't hold his feelings back as he said:
"He is a man-baby… He has the physical countenance of a man and a baby's temperament and hands. … (Vanity Fair editor) Graydon Carter did a joke about Donald Trump's hands 25 years ago, he's still not f*cking over it."
The comedian continued his Donald bashing by saying:
Apparently Jon's got no "zazz"!
Monday night, Jon Stewart made a surprise appearance on The Daily Show to help bring attention to the expired James Zadroga 9/11 Health and Compensation Act which helps pay for 9/11 first responders' medical ailments.
But the former late night host isn't stopping with one appearance as he swung by his old pal Stephen Colbert's Late Show Thursday to further his campaign to get congress to pass the act permanently.
Unfortunately, Stewart's been out of the game long enough that his former costar doesn't think he can hold the audience's attention anymore.
That's why Colbert had a Donald Trump wig on hand and told Jon to do his best impersonation while making his pitch — because you know, EVERYONE pays attention to Trump for some reason. LOLz!
Ch-ch-check out the HIGHlarious impersonation (below) and let us know how you think did!
