In a special episode of A Late Show with Stephen Colbert, set to air Friday, the late-night host will look back at a year in quarantine and reflect on the anniversary of the CBS production’s last taping from the Ed Sullivan Theater in which Colbert carried on with the show in an empty theater with only the show’s staff and crew in the audience.
After initially hoping to tape episodes without a studio audience, major late-night and daytime talk shows were forced to go on hiatus amid the coronavirus outbreak. Eventually, late-night shows transitioned to hosting their shows from home without audiences before returning to tape inside the studio
Amid the pandemic, The Late Show has been produced over 167 episodes remotely since the first taping last March 16, when Colbert famously delivering his monologue at home from his bathtub. Since then, the show has moved its remote production to South Carolina and back to the offices of the Ed Sullivan Theater building.
For Friday’s episode, Colbert will welcome White House Chief Medical Advisor and Director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, for his first Late Show appearance.
The special episode of A Late Show with Stephen Colbert will air Friday on 11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT.
