Facebook | Twitter | YouTube | Website

There’s also an official podcast for The Late Show which gets posted up on the new website.

The old Late Show With David Letterman website still lives on for the time being at www.cbs.com/lateshow but CBS have recently removed much of the video content from the Late Show With David Letterman YouTube channel and the CBS website due to licensing.

The Late Show With Stephen Colbert even has its own iOS app but it’s sadly only available on the US App Store at the time of writing this.

There have been a few videos posted to YouTube already including Stephen Colbert’s introductory video featuring the “Colbeard”:

He’s also announced his new band leader as Jonathan Batiste from Louisiana:

One final video has been posted showing Colbert preparing for the launch of the new show:

Also:

– The programme is being called The Late Show With Stephen Colbert everywhere including the new logo which has been revealed (see top right) instead of Late Show as it was throughout Letterman’s tenure.

– Work to renovate the Ed Sullivan Theater in time for September is well underway and the new high-tech marquee signage is set to be installed in the coming weeks.

The Late Late Show could be coming to Sky 1

The Late Late ShowThere are reports that The Late Late Show With James Corden is heading to Sky 1. However, there is a twist – they might only be airing a weekly highlights programme.

The Mirror reports “James Corden’s fans may be able to watch his hit US chat show later this year after talks with Sky 1 to air a weekly one-hour version of it” to only show bits “which are relevant to Brits”.

A source said “What might happen is that Sky will take it and do an hour-long show, showing the best bits. The pre-recorded parts and any relevant interviews should be shown in the UK. It won’t feature the American stars who aren’t known in Britain, you know, the people on CSI here in America, but the things relevant to the UK will go in”.

James Corden is no stranger to Sky 1 as he’s seen huge success on the channel before heading stateside as host of their sports panel show A League Of Their Own.
