Stephen Colbert: The Election-Coverage Superhero We Need

At this point of the presidential campaign, most of America is experiencing flat-out politics fatigue.

That’s where Stephen Colbert swoops in.

On November 8—as in, election day—Stephen Colbert will host an election special called Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going to Clean Up This Sh–? on Showtime. Showtime is owned by CBS which airs Colbert’s regular late-night show, The Late Show with Stephen Colbert.

The hourlong feature will have special guests and remote segments.

Colbert said in a statement that the show will “be all the political comedy you love from my CBS show, with all the swearing and nudity you love from Showtime.”

The special will be broadcast from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York and with the events that have transpired over the last few weeks, the jokes won’t be in short supply. (We’ll be laughing to keep from crying.)
