Following his appearance “Late Night with Seth Meyers” this past Tuesday, Stephen Colbert recorded a special introduction just for Gwen Stefani, after she botched the pronunciation “Colbert” at this years Emmy Awards when announcing “The Colbert Report” as the winner of the ‘Outstanding Variety Series’ category.
But we shouldn’t be so hard on poor Gwen. As Adam Levine (her co-presenter) revealed on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday night, that he had given a nervous Gwen some advice on how to pronounce “Colbert” before going on stage to present the Emmy Award.

I usually try to keep these intros light, but it’s been a tough week. Hopefully it will get better soon. I have really missed the boys this past week with everything that’s been going on in the news.

However, we press on. Oh, there it is. I just made it light. Ya see, cuz I said ‘press’ and it’s “In The Press”. Okay! In this edition, we have a video from “The Young Turks” praising Stephen, and a couple more pieces about that overnight sensation, John Oliver. He’s going places. Read on!

In this edition we go over the big stories that were breaking just before Stephen was announced as the new host of Late Show. There was a nice interview with Stephen’s wife, Evie and yet more stuff about late night TV.
Following CBS’s announcement on Thursday that Stephen Colbert would replace David Letterman as host of ‘The Late Show’ in 2015, the hosts of late night weighed in on the announcement.
