“I had this baby built for when one half of America loses and goes cannibal on the half that won,” he says in the video, given exclusively to CNN. “It’s going to happen.”
Showtime has promised that”Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night – Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going To Clean Up This S***” will showa version of the host that’s unshackled and uncensored. He doesn’t even have to break for commercials.
Showtime president David Nevins first teased the special back in August during the Television Critics Association press tour. At the time, Nevins said they went after Colbert because he’d present an alternative to traditional programming. (Showtime is a corporate sibling of Colbert’s usual home, CBS.)
The deal was officially announced in October.
“It’ll be all the political comedy you love from my CBS show, with all the swearing and nudity you love from Showtime,” Colbert said at the time.
This year’s election has proven to be a creative booster for Colbert. The host’s live editions of “Late Show” garnered praise for their energy and ability to generate buzz in a crowded field.
“After a run of uneven performances that surprised many of his fans, and even his late-night rivals, who consider him outrageously talented, Colbert clearly elevated his game during the conventions,” CNN’s Bill Carter wrote.
Colbert’s Showime special airs November 8 at 11 p.m. ET.
