CBS’ “Late Show With Stephen Colbert” Scores Post-Super Bowl Slot

Instead of spotlighting a drama or comedy, CBS will use the coveted post-Super Bowl slot to draw attention to its “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.”

The new version of “Late Show,” which has thus far been an unspectacular ratings performer, will air directly out of Super Bowl 50.

The live “Colbert” broadcast will emanate from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York.

Local news coverage will air after “Colbert.” That coverage will lead into CBS’ “The Late Late Show with James Corden.”

“It’s been a very big year in late night at CBS,” said Glenn Geller, President, CBS Entertainment. “We’re extremely proud of our two new late night franchises, and we’re thrilled to give Stephen and James this big Super Bowl Sunday showcase.”

Super Bowl 50 takes place on February 7, 2016.
