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! Hopefully you all enjoyed the two-week break from the show and post-Emmy triumph (for me, it means moving back into college for senior year!) It definitely looks like the hosts will have a lot to talk about this first week back. I suspect we’ll be hearing more about Israel and Gaza, the incidents surrounding the death of Michael Brown and the unrest in Ferguson, the execution of James Foley by ISIS, and continuing drama in the Crimean Peninsula. Of course, if there’s anything you’d like to see addressed on the show, what guests you’re most excited to hear from this week, and more, let us know in the comments below!
Stephen’s guests this week include two actors, an author, and an artist. Jon’s guests this week include an author and a comedian. Let’s get this short Emmy week started!
When news stories fall through the cracks, we here at Colbert News Hub catch them for a post we call, “In The Press”.
EMMYS!! Here are some of the stories, all about the Emmys. The good news is that Stephen’s writers have already started to celebrate after last week’s Creative Arts Emmy win. Let’s hope the celebration can continue.
There are a few articles about the upcoming Emmys on Monday!…

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. I have a feeling Jon is exasperated with the news coverage of Robin Williams, I know I’ve seen some stuff that’s made me mad.
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!
Hey there Hubsters! I hope you are all excited for a new week of shows! It looks like we’ll be seeing more about Gaza and Israel it continues to dominate the news, especially after the failure of the 72-hour cease-fire. I hope we also see some coverage of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, the recent earthquake in China, developments in the GOP plan to sue President Obama, US immigration policy, and more. As always, let us know what you think about the guests for this week, what topics you hope are highlighted this week, and more!
Stephen’s guests this week are two politicians, a director, an actor, and an entrepreneur.
Jon’s guests this week are an actress, an author, a band, and a director.
In this month’s catch up we have interviews with J.R. Havlan, Lewis Black, Michael Che and Amy Sedaris, casting news for David Pasquesi, Amy Sedaris and Rory Albanese, new written pieces by Frank Lesser, J.J. Sedelmaier and Jordan Klepper, new music from Erik Frandsen, and David Sedaris is rewarded for his services to the environment of West Sussex.
Hey there Hubsters! With another week of shows on the way, it’s time for this week’s “Better Know a Guest”! Even though our favorite shows go on break every weekend, everyone knows that the news never does. Based on some of the guests, it looks like we’ll hear about education policy, the controversy surrounding Malaysian Airlines flight MH17, and child immigrants. Of course, there’s a lot more time on the show than just the interviews, so let us know what events you hope will be covered, as well as your favorite guests, in the comments below!
Stephen’s guests this week include a musician, a band, an actor, and a news reporter.
Jon’s guests this week are an author, a news reporter, and two actresses.
