CBS may hear from ABC about its late-night “homage” to Charlie Brown’s Christmas special, featuring Stephen Colbert filling in for Chuck as annual Holiday-Angster-In-Chief.
“Good grief, Christmas is coming and Donald Trump is going to be president,” Colbert groans, pausing to lean against a stone wall at the edge of Central Park.
Santa joins Stephen and confesses he voted Republican.
“It was the only thing Donald wanted for Christmas. My hands were tied,” Santa began but, when the truth comes out, he’d cast his vote for the former reality TV star because Trump promised to bring back coal and Santa needed the coal. “Do you really want to live in a world where the naughty don’t get punished?” Santa asks, defensively.
CBS debuted A Charlie Brown Christmas in 1965 and was its broadcast home until 2001 when it migrated to ABC.
