Stephen Colbert Holiday-Themed Clip Shows Celebrate His Vacation


Stephen Colbert’s Late Show will broadcast a week of clip jobs, celebrating its best moments of 2016, airing next Monday through Thursday. Each night will feature new, “holiday-themed introductions” and sign-offs from Colbert that are unique to each show, CBS promised.

“It’s that magical time of year again when CBS repackages our show’s best moments to air while I’m on vacation,” Colbert explained in today’s announcement.  “So while you’re at home watching [Late Show], I’m at home on the couch watching Charlie Brown Christmas, wearing nothing but a box of wine balanced on my crotch.”

“That image is my Christmas gift to you,” Colbert said, which did not make it any better.
