    The first case of the Omicron variant hits the US, and Former White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows' new book revealed that the Former President tested positive for Covid a few days before his debate with Joe Biden, about a week before the diagnosis went public.

Academy-Award winning actor Javier Bardem tells Stephen what it was like to step into Desi Arnaz's shoes for the new biopic, "Being The Ricardos," with co-star Nicole Kidman who plays Lucille Ball.

    Peter Jackson Continued | The Most Plunderful Time of The Year

    This Cyber Monday, consider shopping at one of the small businesses profiled on Late Show’s #ColbertSmallBizBump, like Redmon’s Popcorn run by Zack Redmon in New Hope, Minnesota. How good is Zack’s luxury popcorn? Just ask Redmon’s official commercial spokesperson, Nick Offerman. And while 146 new Christmas movies were released this year, 2021 was set to give us zero Hanukkah movies until The Late Show stepped in with a slate of brand new holiday classics with titles like, “Home for the Challah-days,” “Casino Dreidel,” and “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Rabbi.” In part two of his conversation with Stephen, Director Peter Jackson examines the mindset of The Beatles as they prepared for a rooftop concert profiled in the new Disney+ documentary, “The Beatles: Get Back,” and sheds light on why the band suppressed the footage for decades. Jackson also mentions a chat between George Harrison and John Lennon that might have changed the direction of the band had they ever shared the details with Paul.

    Happy Thanksgiving from everyone at The Late Show! Families around the country are planning a return to larger Thanksgiving celebrations as 53 million Americans are hitting the road and traveling this week for the holiday. Meanwhile… New York City’s elected leaders decided they no longer wanted to conduct business in the shadow of a man who enslaved people, so a statue of Thomas Jefferson was packed up and moved to a new location this week. Next, Rosamund Pike, the Oscar-nominated actor you know from "Gone Girl" and "Pride & Prejudice," shows Stephen how she used a pencil to train her British self to speak in an American accent, a lesson that came in handy for her starring role in the new Amazon Prime series "The Wheel Of Time." Then, in part one of their extended interview, Stephen welcomes Sir Peter Jackson and sets the stage for their in-depth discussion of Jackson’s work directing the incredible Disney+ documentary, “The Beatles: Get Back,” which is set to change the public’s perception of the relationship between John, Paul, George and Ringo in their final years as bandmates.

Not too Shabby

It’s good to listen to when I am travelling in to work but a lot of the show relies on visual references. That shows up in the audio version. Hearing Bruce Springsteen show off his guitar hurts my heart. I’m gonna have to go to YouTube to rewatch the episode……OHHHHH, I see what you’re doing there!!

If you’re a fan, this is awesome.
The sound is so much better than the tv broadcast.
And Stephen Colbert....what’s not to like?!??

Not everything needs to be a podcast

Really don’t get why a tv show needed to be released as a podcast. Especially since a lot of the jokes are visual based… “And guy who looks like your high school drama teacher.” Just shows a complete lack of understanding about the medium.
