The irony of this clip being about hot girls when Stephen looks so good I just want to throw my MacBook out the bloody window

Better Know a Guest Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.

Hello, Colbert News Hub!  First off I want to apologize that this news section isn’t going to include anything that happens over the weekend, because I’m writing on Friday before flying off to South Carolina for what might be the last beach weekend of the season. Gotta have my priorities.

Stephen’s guests this week are a chef, an actor, the former Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and a journalist. Jon’s are a journalist, an actor, a writer/actress, and a director.

Let us know who you’re excited for, and what you’d like to see covered this week!

Better Know a Guest Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.

Hello, Colbert News Hub!  After a fun week of watching and being conflicted about the Scottish Referendum (sticking together seemed like the safer idea, but splitting up would’ve been so much funnier), and watching more Sky News than I could’ve ever predicted, I am ready to start this fall with a fresh batch of stories.  To begin, New York yesterday hosted a HUGE climate change rally, with almost 400,000 people showing up to march for climate change awareness and action.  Tuesday’s guest Naomi Klein will certainly have something to say about that, and I’m sure “Stephen” will have some beef with it.

Also this week in American news: China!  Alibaba, China’s largest e-commerce website (sort of like Amazon or eBay, only with more government censorship) had its IPO on Friday, raising $231 billion. Jack Ma, the founder and CEO, told news outlets that he “had a dream”, and that was “to be bigger than Walmart”. He also says he’s been inspired by Forrest Gump, which he’s seen at least 10 times. So he should be a favorite of the Colbert Report writers, I’d think. Other threatening-to-American-exceptionalism news included the revelation that hipster favorite Pabst Blue Ribbon beer was sold to Russian investors. So we export hipsters now. The week also saw the release of the iPhone 6, which I am on my way to buy as soon as I finish writing this. I am not expecting it to be pre-loaded with nude photos of Bono (but maybe of Kim Kardashian, Vanessa Hudgens, Hope Solo, Lake Bell, Avril Lavigne, and Leelee Sobieski, who had their own nude photos hacked his week).

Stephen’s upcoming guests are a father-son rock band, a journalist, BILL FREAKING COSBY, and a psychologist. Jon’s are an investigative journalist, a retired Marine Corps general, a Pitbull trainer, and a science writer.

Let us know who you’re excited for, and what you’d like to see covered this week!

Better Know a Guest: September 15 – 18, 2014

Better Know a Guest Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.

Hello, Colbert News Hub! Anna here, your new Better-Know-a-Guest-er. I’ve been lurking around the site for about a month now, and it’s been fun to watch the Colbert Report with more knowledge about who these interviewees are. I do too much research on the news anyway (usually just to procrastinate doing laundry, or my actual job), and I figured it’s time to put that habit to some use. So hi.

This week in America, we’re seeing continued confusion over the ISIS situation. As disgusting stories of torture and beheading continue to come out, the Obama administration has declared war, sort of, promising increased airstrikes but not wanting to exactly call it a war or to exactly call it Syria. Meanwhile, today (Sunday) in Iowa, Senator Tom Harkin is about to hold his final Iowa Steak Fry after 37 years. The event will be headlined by Bill and Hillary Clinton, who are
expected to sort-of-but-not-officially campaign. In stupid news, the week saw members of the Palin family get into a fistfight at something called a “snowmobile party”, the return of crazy South Carolina congressman Mark Sanford with an epic Facebook rant about his ex-wife, and an Olive Garden investor complaining in a 294-page Powerpoint presentation that the company serves too many bread sticks, too much salad, expensive take out bags, and not enough salt in its pasta water.

Stephen’s guests this week are an actress/showrunner, a young Metal band, an actor, and a filmmaker; Jon hosts a documentarian, two actors, and (as of Sunday) a mystery guest.

Let us know who you’re excited for and what you’d like to see covered this week!

A Look Back — Stephen on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Way back in April 2004 then Daily Show correspondent Stephen Colbert made an appearance on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss his brushes (or lack thereof) with Candidate Greatness on the ’04 presidential campaign trail. We all remember his *one* question with Howard Dean, right? He also talks about his wife’s discomfort with a NSFW comedic piece he did on Kimmel’s Comedy Central show Crank Yankers. Stephen ends the interview with an edited piece about editing a piece, channeling tyrannical bits of what soon would become his character just a year and a half later.

Better Know a Guest: September 8 – 11, 2014

Better Know a Guest Welcome to Better Know a Guest, your weekly guide to the wonderful and diverse array of personalities appearing on ‘The Colbert Report’ and ‘The Daily Show’ each week.

Hey there Hubsters!  Here’s to hoping all your weekends were fantastic, and that we’ll have an enjoyable week of shows ahead of us.  As an announcement, due to extra work for my senior year of undergrad (senior thesis, anyone?), I unfortunately have to give up the BKAG posts to keep up with academic assignments.  If anyone is interested in taking up the posts, get in touch with Katt at colbertnewshub@gmail.com.  The Hub staff are very busy, and would appreciate the addition of a new staff member.

Based on one of the guests this week, I’m expecting a discussion of pressing international issues (particularly unrest in Ukraine, the ebola crisis in West Africa, a conflict that broke out in South Sudan over the weekend between rebels and the government, and more).  Of course, we’ve had some interesting news in the US as well, including the stalling of immigration policy reform, new developments in the Michael Brown case, the mysterious crash of an American couple’s plane near Jamaica, request for the Supreme Court to consider state’s rights to outlaw gay marriage, and an American anti-federalist group that is sending a message of complaint to Washington via horseback.  As always, let us know what you hope our hosts will discuss in this week’s round of shows!

Hey there Hubsters! Hopefully all of you had great weekends (like a lot of readers I’m sure, it was my first weekend back at college).  This weekend has certainly been eventful, and Jon and Stephen sure have a lot to choose from when deciding what to cover.  I’m guessing that we’ll see some coverage of the events at the US Embassy in Tripoli, Libya, more news about ISIS and Iraq, even more drama between the EU and Russia, among other news stories that break throughout the week.  As always, let us know what you hope to hear about in the comments below, as well as any other remarks you may have!

Stephen’s guests this week are an actor and two authors.
Jon’s guests this week are an author, a filmmaker, and a musician.
