Theme:–The Year of ‘Uppertunity’ – Get Lifted!”
With Higher Hopes, Bolder Dreams and Greater Teams (Old-School Flava)

The newest player in late night TV has entered the building! That’s how some saw the debut of CBS’ Late Night with Stephen Colbert. He joins the ranks of comedy hosts who mix politics and showbiz eclectics. Competition for late night eyeballs is on, as Colbert’s hunch is that pop culture can be the star teacher.

He tells USA Today about his new role saying “It gives me everything I want. I like meeting the guests, I like the grind, I like a live audience, I love to hear the laughter. It’s the only job I could imagine that was a promotion.” This is a case of landing a promotion by learning the ropes and not being stuck on stupid.

Colbert made a grand entry with Joe Biden, Jeb Bush and other guests, plus a cameo from Jon Stewart. His interviewing skills and comedic slant are getting people’s attention. Reaching this next level has been a steady output of content built around ‘getting ready for great’ before his breakaway.

It’s been years preparing for this moment after spending time as an understudy and reporter on the Daily Show. This helped him spin-off his own gig on Comedy Central. Hardly anyone questions whether he was the right one to replace Letterman. And even Jimmy Fallon welcomed him to Network prime time.

Colbert adds “I’m looking forward to being sincerely interested in what (guests) have to say without having to translate it through an idiot’s mouth.” His background is built on improv and reputation built on his real love. No matter the guests, Colbert hopes people watch, listen, laugh and learn the civics lesson.

Tells USA Today his feelings on new role. Gives him everything he wants to spur his soul. Likes the guests the grind and live crowd. Loves to hear when people laugh out loud. Only job he saw as his next promotion. Not stuck on stupid with new found recognition.

Made grand entry with Joe, Jeb and Jon. Other guests too that made his debut #1. Interviewing skills without the endless rant. Getting people’s attention with comedic slant. Reaching next level with steady output of content. Built around getting ready for great breakaway moment.

Years preparing for this gradual rise. A big step-up towards the ultimate prize. Time as understudy and Daily Show reporter. Helped to spin-off own gig as Comedy Central anchor. Hardly questioned as the right one for Letterman’s job. Even Jimmy Fallon welcomed him to the prime time club.

Looks forward to having best scoop. From variety of folks who’re in the loop. Without needing to translate stuff through. An idiot’s mouth that’s right for the zoo. A background built on theater improv. A reputation built on his real love. The guests he hopes will ring true. As we watch, listen, laugh and learn civics anew.
