James Franco, Bryan Cranston Help Us Bid Adieu To Stephen Colbert and ‘The Colbert Report’

James Franco, Bryan Cranston Help Us Bid Adieu To Stephen Colbert and ‘The Colbert Report’

-Courtney Enlow

“Folks, if this is your first time tuning into The Colbert Report, I have some terrible news for you.” With a mighty leap over the word “grippest,” Stephen Colbert began his final episode of The Colbert Report.

For the first half, it was actually a very normal episode, with talk of Syria, a shout-out to the Prescott Group, and a special “The Word” devoted to Colbert’s impact on television. Oh, and he also killed Death. Shooting Grimmy the Grim Reaper, he was rendered immortal. Your standard stuff. I’m pretty sure that’s how Jack Parr went off the air.

But it wasn’t all the fantastically self-important bombast we’ve loved since 2005. For starters, the auction Colbert held for his desk and fireplace earned over $313,000 for the Yellow Ribbon Fund. And, he thanked his audience, his “Nation,” for everything he’s done over the past nine years.

Then, the music began.

Singing “We’ll Meet Again,” Colbert was joined by guests and friends to the show like Jon Stewart, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Big Bird, Jeff Daniels, Bryan Cranston, Willie Nelson, Cyndi Lauper, Ric Ocasek, Katie Couric, James Franco, Cookie Monster, Michael Stipe, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Toby Keith, Ken Burns, Barry Manilow, Patrick Stewart, Wilco’s Jeff Tweedy, Ariana Huffington, Alan Alda, George Lucas, Elijah Wood, Tim Meadows, Bob Costas, Bill Clinton, astronauts in space, JJ Abrams, Elliot Spitzer, and so, so, so many more. Literally everyone you’ve ever even imagined was there.

Then, with a heartfelt thank you to his crew, the network and guests, and, of course, Colbert Nation, Santa, Abe Lincoln (revealed to be a unicorn), and Alex Trebek, Colbert was whisked away to television history.

All in all, it was a spectacular send-off to a spectacular, important show. We’ll miss it. See you on the other side, Stephen Tyrone Colbert. Thanks for everything.

And remember: We will see him again soon. Here are all the reasons why Colbert will kill it as host of The Late Show in 2015.

People Magazine Awards’ Worst Dressed + Biggest Fails


View Photo Gallery

The first-ever People Magazine Awards aired tonight on NBC, and it was certainly star-studded (and weird). From Karlie Kloss to Jennifer Lopez, the A-listers showed their beautiful faces in support of People and Entertainment Weekly. However, not everyone was dressed to kill. Did we mention the show was weird?

Browse our gallery of style letdowns, but first, we must discuss the sheer hilarity of it all. Everything about this night felt strange. The show was cheesy, sparkly, and included random photos of celebrity dogs and videos of children singing. The “WTF?!” factor was high, so let’s break down the biggest fails.

1. Nick Cannon couldn’t get a laugh. 

Cannon’s humor wasn’t on point. We love him, but one-two punch jokes were replaced with bizarre banter about what a great host he was and how AWESOME THE PEOPLE MAGAZINE AWARDS are. We really needed him to calm down and stop acting so wild (n’ out).

2. Presenters had some trouble reading. 

Seriously, was there even a teleprompter? Everyone from Kloss (who was just plain awkward during her multiple speaking parts) to Eric Dane and Pharrell had trouble getting through their 30-second intros. It was painful and made us wonder if Hollywood needs to borrow our Hooked on Phonics set.

3. The categories were random AF. 

This was the awards show where Sexiest Woman Alive and Charity Trend of the Year were muttered in the same breath. That’s right: People magazine editors literally ranked charities and decided which one was the “trendiest.” *Face palm.*

4. What was with the weird montages?

Everything from celebrity weddings to viral videos and celeb/dog selfies were honored in montage form, and set to an ear-crushing EDM beat. It was…peppy. Yeah, let’s go with peppy.

5. 5 Seconds of Summer sang a cover. 

Instead of performing one of their hits, they opted to revive The Romantic‘s “What I Like About You.” And it came off like a high school talent show more than a Hollywood party. Gwen Stefani and Pharrell also gave a cringe-worthy performance of their song “Spark the Fire” that was all kinds of no.
