Language warning. Stephen Colbert, the unfunny clown who made his career on Comedy Central mocking conservatives has been triggered. In an emotional outburst on his show, he damned Alex Jones, Michael Flynn, and the #PizzaGate conspiracy theory.
The Late Show, struggling to keep ratings alive, may replace current host Stephen Colbert with James Corden.
Colbert, who has hosted the show on CBS for only a year now, has been struggling to connect with the millennial audience. According to The Wrap, his ratings for the 18-49 year-old demographic pale in comparison to other late night hosts like Jimmy Fallon. Colbert averages around 2.822 million viewers per episode, while Fallon clocks in an impressive 3.652 million.
Some Hollywood insiders believe that Colbert, whose routines rarely go viral or attract national attention, may be replaced with the more popular James Corden, well-known for his Carpool Karaoke. Corden has seemed to connect to the online audience and has 8.3 million subscribers on Youtube according to The Daily Mail. The Late Late Show with James Corden currently airs at 12:30 a.m., right after Colbert’s show. Although the late air time allows Corden to be a little raunchier, it comes at the cost of less viewers.
