Plot Synopsis

Each weeknight (Mon-Thu) at 11:30pm ET/PT on Comedy Central, immediately after THE DAILY SHOW, host Stephen Colbert parodies the news and talks to celebrities, politicians, and newsmakers about current events and pop culture. While THE DAILY SHOW presents stories from a left-wing perspective, Colbert plays a stereotypical pundit from the other side of the aisle.
On Thursday, December 18, 2014 at 11:30pm ET/PT, Comedy Central premiered the series finale of THE COLBERT REPORT, shortly after an all-day (10am-11pm) marathon of classic episodes from the show. 'Grimmy' The Grimm Reaper was Colbert's final guest.
