I'm very sad. I actually cried. I know this is a really short OP, but I'd love some commiseration.....

Did you guys see it last night? I don't stay up late enough, but just watched it now (rerun).......oh my.

I certainly DO hope we will meet again, don't know how, don't know when......but I think it will be as a guest on The Daily Show!

YAY!
Have you guys read his book? (Stephen's, that is).
Anyway - I'm being a big baby, but 9 years - a lot has happened. I will miss him.

That is all.

I have only followed the show for about a year or so but haven't missed an episode probably since.
Amazing show, I was pretty bummed to see it go too.


He will totally be on The Daily Show, he has to plug his new job


I thought how they ended it was awesome too.

Yeah, that made me feel better - obviously he's not burning his bridges. He WILL guest on the Daily Show.

I feel lucky that I got to see him live in 2011 - he gave the graduation speech when my daughter got her bachelor's degree.

Mmm. Well, I will.

Did you ever give him a chance? Or were you just ticked off from the get-go?

That is awesome, did he do the speech in character or himself?

I'm with you OP. Sad.


He added an element to cultural and political discourse that won't easily be replaced.

Yes, he sure did. But - I'm reassured he WILL be back on The Daily Show and other places. Probably John Oliver's show, too! But it was really nostalgic to see all of his guests from the years gathered there......

Just got done watching it. Great show!! He'll be missed on Comedy Central. I wonder what they'll have in his spot now as it will be a difficult spot to fill.

Colbert really brought his A game on every show too. He also taught everyone who watched a lot and did so in a charismatic and humorous way.

He'll always be remembered for his Bush speech as well.

Here's to you Colbert!!!

This is the guy taking over the spot, he frequents The Daily show.

And I don't doubt we will see some threads about him and what he has to say.

I was sad it was over, lot of laughs, been watching since his first show. He got off to a rough start, but found his character. I hwish him luck with the Letterman Gig.

I'm not looking forward to his replacement Larry Wilmore, I just don't think he is funny.

Ya, I was sad for it to end. I can't believe he didn't cry! I think he's kind of an emotional guy.

I am however, looking forward to the new guy on "The Nightly Show". (is that the name......)

I think he is someone that some folks don't identify with his humor, it took me a while but I like the show sometimes, he is different. Some of that stuff is hilarious. The thing about Colbert is that he has great writers for the show and he can as well do it on the fly alone without writers.

Whatever it is. Yeah , I think he's taking Letterman's place. But no matter where he goes - I'll miss his show on Comedy Central. I think John Oliver might be the next 'every night' guy -

edit on 12/19/2014 by BuzzyWigs because: because it is Letterman and not Leno!!!!

Oh cool. I like that guy, he's funny.

Probably not the same keen wit and intelligence of Colbert but still pretty good.

Thanx for the info!!

I tried a couple times and just didn't find him funny.
If we are getting rid of tv and radio hosts I have a list to start with.
John Stewart
Sean hannity
Howard stern
The entire view cast
Judge Judy
Glenn beck
Nancy grace

Wow my list is getting long...
