Tonight was the first episode of The Last Show with Stephen Colbert. Colbert remains a rare entertainer that is consistently genuine and earnest. As much as I loved The Colbert Report and its satire, it’s good to see Colbert as himself. I understand why he wanted to stop playing a caricature. I’m hoping this won’t devolved into the typical late night talk show, and I feel confident it won’t. The closing musical act seemed to reassure the audience of that. And the classic Colbert humor was there at the start of the show. Looking forward to where this will go.
