CBS’s coverage of this year’s political showdown will include a live broadcast from Stephen Colbert. The network confirmed today that the popular show Late Show with Stephen Colbert will broadcast two weeks of live shows during the political conventions in July. A fan favorite, Colbert will be sure to offer his humorous take on both conventions as they unfold.
All of this starts with a live broadcast of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday, July 18th, and will run through Thursday, July 21 (11:35 PM, live ET/taped PT). Those dates are for the broadcast of the Republican National Convention, which will be held in Cleveland this year.
Just a few days later Colbert will return with another run of live shows. The next live broadcast will take place from Monday, July 25th, and will run through Thursday, July 28 (11:35 PM, live ET/taped PT). Those are the dates if you wish to watch the live broadcast from the Democratic National Convention. That event is scheduled to take place in Philadelphia this year.
According to CBS’ announcements this morning, Colbert will host each night live from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York, where he and his guests will react to the day’s events in Cleveland and Philadelphia. Also, THE LATE SHOW will have an on-site presence at both conventions.
CBS did not go into detail on the live-presence at this time, but did promise that additional information will be made available as details are confirmed.
