What is the The Late Show With Stephen Colbert?
The Late Show with Stephen Colbert is an American late-night talk show hosted by Stephen Colbert, which premiered on September 8, 2015. Produced by Spartina Productions and CBS Television Studios, it is the second iteration of CBS' Late Show franchise.

That season, it also narrowly beat The Tonight Show in key demographic viewership for the first time since the 1994–95 season. On March 12, the show suspended production due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As of March 30, 2020, the show has been produced from Colbert’s home. As a result of the show being produced from home, the program has temporarily changed its name from The Late Show... to A Late Show with Stephen Colbert (alternatively titled A Late Show with Stephen at Home), with the band being credited on-screen as Jon Batiste and "Stay Home-an"...
