Boy have I missed the Colbert Report

I didn't realize just how much I missed Stephen Colbert (of the Colbert Report as opposed to Stephen Colbert of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert) until he returned to TV last night to cover the Republican National Convention. I know the Daily Show with John Stewart was sort of the gold standard of late night political comedy but I'm sorry the Colbert Report was a better show. It was nice to see him back, even if it was only for a 10 minute segment.

I was kind of amazed at how badly the Comedy Central shows dropped the ball yesterday. I understand how their taping schedule works and I know it would have been a challenge to do any sort of new show at the RNC but come on. The Daily Show played a clip show that was really really poorly edited. The Nightly Show didn't even put that much effort into it, they just ran a rerun from last week. Both shows need to do something different and creative to gain back all the credibility they've lost over the last year. Just doing what Stewart and Colbert used to do but much worse isn't going to do anything for them.

Anyway, how about that Melania Trump? That was crazy huh?
