Praise Jesus! Finally, some good news! Former co-workers, old pals and occasional faux-rivals Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are getting the band back together for one night only!
Nearly a year after Stewart abandoned us all in our deepest time of need (i.e. an election year) and signed off for the last time on The Daily Show, he returns to late night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert Monday evening to help kick off their live two-week national convention coverage. While Colbert will still be broadcasting from New York, former boss/current executive-producer Stewart will be on-location from Cleveland at the RNC, hopefully bringing his highly-ridiculous Trump impression with him.
What he'll be doing exactly is unclear, but he'll be launching the opening night of coverage, in what The Late Show is referring to as "The 2016 Trumpublican Donational Conventrump starring Donald Trump as the Republican Party (May Contain Traces of Republican).” The following week will begin DNC coverage with “The 2016 Democratic National Convincing a Technically Historic Event: Death. Taxes. Hillary.” Other guests also scheduled to appear over the two weeks of convention coverage include Jeff Daniels, Jennifer Saunders, Zoe Saldana, Anthony Weiner, Keegan-Michael Key, Elizabeth Warren, Allison Janney and fellow former Daily Show-er John Oliver.
