What You Missed Last Night: Colbert Got His iPad!

by Bob Sassone, posted Feb 1st 2010 2:33PM
Last week I told you about Stephen Colbert making a plea on his show for Apple's new iPad (which he called the Tablet because it hadn't been released yet). Well, it looks like he got his iPad a lot sooner than the rest of us are going to get them. He whipped it out last night at 'The Grammys' and even taunted some of the stars who haven't gotten one yet.

What You Missed Last Night: Stephen Colbert wants Apple's tablet

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 27th 2010 10:30AM
In case you haven't heard, Apple is probably going to release some sort of tablet/pad today that is GOING TO CHANGE THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT. Actually, I'm pretty excited about it myself. So is Stephen Colbert. In this clip from last night, he talks about a new iPhone app and pleads for the new device too.

Colbert ignores U.S. speed skater who called him a jerk, for now

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 9th 2009 8:03PM
It's been two days worth of new episodes now and Stephen Colbert has suddenly stopped talking about his beloved Olympic speed skating team. It's a surprise since the man has given more props to his sponsorship of the team than Gatorade does for the Super Bowl.

That may be because team member Shani Davis called Colbert a "jerk" for running his smear campaign against the Canadians, a smear campaign that seemed to get the Canadians to back and give his team practice time on Canada's ice. It even almost seemed as though Colbert was going to address the name-calling in his opening "Who's Attacking Me Now" segment on Monday, but instead went into the comments made by White House Recovery Act Coordinator G. Edward DeSeve.

Should Colbert call out Davis for his name calling and more importantly, will he?

What You Missed Last Night: the craziest f**cking thing (and one of the more disgusting)

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 8th 2009 1:02PM
Stephen Colbert has a regular feature where he discusses "the craziest f**cking thing I've ever heard," and last night it was also one of the more disgusting, about some sort of creature found off of New Jersey that attaches itself to another animal's tongue and...well, watch it for yourself.

Stephen Colbert makes Canada jokes, speedskater calls him a jerk

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 4th 2009 4:29PM
As you've probably heard, Stephen Colbert is sponsoring the U.S. Olympic speedskating team. He raised around $300,000 for it. But that's not good enough for at least one of the players, Shani Davis. At a press conference yesterday, he called Colbert a jerk for making jokes about Canada in an episode of The Colbert Report last month. Here's the segment. You be the judge.

Sesame Street's 40th: Five biggest controversies

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 12th 2009 11:01AM
Sit a kid in front of a TV for an hour a day and a parent is bound to find something that offends them, other than the fact that plopping impressionable minds in front of a TV unsupervised is considered "good parenting."

Sesame Street
is no stranger to controversy. Critics, cynics and crybabies have called out the show on everything from questionable behavior to the ambiguous situations...of puppets. Of course, all of these complaints and cackling criticisms just scratch the surface of a much bigger issue that has largely gone unaddressed: the total loss of our sanity and grasp on reality.

So as we look back at the last 40 years of television's greatest children's show, we see some speed bumps along the way. These are the ones that caused the greatest loss of tire pressure.

What You Missed Last Night: Colbert "defends" Barney Frank

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 11th 2009 12:37PM
Yesterday we showed you a clip of Wolf Blitzer and Lou Dobbs talking about the 2007 arrest of Barney Frank's partner for growing pot plants at their home in Maine. Last night Stephen Colbert defended Frank. Well, sort of.

What You Missed Last Night: Stephen Colbert does ... the sports?

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 3rd 2009 12:01PM
You don't usually see Stephen Colbert talking about sports. He even addresses that a little bit in this clip from last night's show, where he talks about the winner of the New York City marathon and Olympic speedskating.

This show remains one of the funniest shows on television.

What You Missed Last Night: Colbert wants you to edit the web again

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 8th 2009 3:40PM
Remember a while back when Stephen Colbert wanted you to go to Wikipedia and actually edit things on his page? Well, he's at it again. He wants fans to go to the conservative site Conservapedia and add him as a character in the Bible! Look at the note that the site has:

Special message to the Colbert show watchers: do yourselves a favor and watch less television. Colbert and his advertisers want to make money off you, but you can accomplish some good instead by unplugging the TV. You could even pick up a Bible.

Colbert on the people who didn't want the Olympics in Chicago

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 6th 2009 4:27PM
I don't usually watch the Olympics, so it wasn't too devastating to me that Chicago lost out to Rio De Janiero in the bid to host the 2016 games. But that doesn't mean I was rooting against Chicago, like some people were, as this clip from last night's Colbert Report shows.

What You Missed Last Night: Stephen Colbert can't stop laughing

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 30th 2009 2:29PM
This won't come as news to fans of The Colbert Report, but it's actually a brilliant little show. The writing on it is so well-done (which isn't easy to do four days a week), and Colbert really gives an incredible "performance" as this character Stephen Colbert. He's dedicated to it, and every episode is like a gem of writing and performance art.

Last night he talked about a new tobacco product on the market, and at one point he can't even speak. (Video also here.)

Colbert doesn't believe Conan hurt himself

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 29th 2009 3:26PM
Is Jimmy Fallon "Totes hot?" I have no idea, but I do know that I'm never going to use the phrase "totes hot" again.

Last night, Stephen Colbert said he's skeptical that Conan really couldn't do his show last Friday because he hit his head during a sketch. For evidence he pulled out a recent Glamour magazine that features him, Conan, and that above quote about Fallon. (Video also here.)

NASA astronauts are going to wear a COLBERT patch tonight

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 28th 2009 8:07PM
COLBERT patchIf the much-delayed launch of the space shuttle Discovery does indeed happen tonight (at 11:59PM ET) , the astronauts are going to be wearing patches, like they always do. But this time the COLBERT treadmill is on the shuttle so the crew is going to be wearing the patch to the right. Is that cool or what? How do we get one?

What You Missed Last Night: the Colbert Bump

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 5th 2009 3:31PM
We don't have many posts on TV Squad about cocktails. I've been trying to convince people that we need more booze on the site, but they won't listen to me. Probably because I'm usually drunk when I say it.

Last night Stephen Colbert had Esquire's cocktail guy David Wondrich on, and he created a summer drink for the show, The Colbert Bump. It includes cherry brandy, gin, lemon juice, and soda water. (Video also here.)

What You Missed Last Night: William Shatner does Sarah Palin

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 28th 2009 11:30AM
You knew that when Sarah Palin gave her incomprehensible farewell speech the other day the late night shows would jump on it. The Daily Show did it last night, and so did The Colbert Report. But I didn't expect William Shatner to add his semi-musical take. This is from last night's Tonight Show.
