Turns out the picture behind the desk is actually a videowall.

I only watched the first twenty minutes and enjoyed it. I was never a fan of The Daily Show / The Colbert Report because well I watched real news. There were some funny bits that I liked online but that was it.

I liked having Les Moonves in the audience with the switch to The Mentalist and when Colbert went off script or made a joke at CBS' expense it switched.

I also love that the dome (don't know what to call it) in the theater was renovated and open for view. I must say I love the projections that made it look like a church or Stephen.

I think I'll have to give his show a shot. I got a bit tired of Jimmy Fallon and his constant desire to act or play games with the celebrities (on ever single show it seems like) and I think this will be refreshing.

This is the problem I have with Fallon. The overeager schoolchild act gets grating after a while.

Some of the games are entertaining like pictionary, clue or password but they have to have the right people.

One "game" involved Jimmy and Julia Roberts throwing increasingly large beach balls at each others faces and watching the results in slomotion on a a 4K video wall. The only reason why they did that "game" was because they got a Vision Research Phantom Flex 4K camera that has frame rates up to 1000fps.

Isn't it weird how they're using "The Late Show With" as a logo independent of "Stephen Colbert"? Just seems odd.

I'm just disappointed they didn't end up calling it 'The Late Show with Starring Stephen Colbert'.

I know this is US TV so it is to be expected but the logo, set and frankly the host look so dated - those caps could be from 20 years ago.
