After months of teasing and weird stunts Stephen Colbert finally hosted his first Late Show Sept. 8.
George Clooney, Jeb Bush and Stay Human came on the show as guests and helped introduce America to the next contender for late night/viral video ratings.
He kicked things off with the Star Spangled Banner and Trump jokes
He kept it classy by honoring David Letterman
He got Jeb Bush to say something nice about Obama
He then made even more Trump jokes
Because ratings, I guess.
A goateed George Clooney made up a new movie
All in all, it seemed a lot like late night talk show, which is what it is.
Colbert brings that special bit of extra charm that makes it enjoyable, but at the moment it seems like just another take on a format that feels pretty dated at its core.
What do you think? Will you watch?
