Stephen Colbert Finds His Voice

Something interesting has happened over at CBS since the Trump Administration has taken over. Before the election, CBS execs were being quoted anonymously considering a switch of Stephen Colbert and James Corden's time slots. There's no doubt Colbert heard those rumblings. That's when the flailing Colbert, who had been trying to do a down-the-middle softened-edges comedy talk show, decided to go for it. He had nothing to lose. He returned to the edgy political comedy that made him a star, and voila!

The (more than) half of the country that is currently panicking watching this new president started tuning in droves again. And now Colbert is #1 in the late night ratings.
