Stephen Colbert will again host a live edition of “The Late Show” during next month’s midterm elections, bringing his charged brand of comedy to election day coverage.
The late-night star, whose show is recorded at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York, will broadcast live on Nov. 6 at 11:35 p.m. Eastern time, CBS announced today.
West Coast and Hawaii fans will see a tape-delayed version of the show when it airs during its usual time slot at 11:35 p.m. Pacific time (10:35 p.m. in Hawaii).
Colbert notably hosted a live edition of the show during the 2016 presidential election and was gobsmacked as the results declaring Donald Trump the winner rolled in. He’s gone live a few more times since, including in January following Trump’s State of the Union address.
Next month’s show will mark the 18th time “The Late Show” has done a live broadcast.
Guests joining Colbert will be announced at a later date, CBS said in a statement.
