Colbert Reveals ‘Late Show’ Debut ‘Almost Didn’t Get On The Air’.

Stephen Colbert revealed Wednesday on CBS’ “The Late Show” that his debut show almost didn’t make it to air Tuesday night due to technical difficulties. “I almost needed a heart transplant last night because a funny thing happened – and I’m telling you this is an absolutely true story I’m about to tell you – the show almost didn’t get on the air last night.

It was a little long, it was a double-stuffed Oreo stuffed with other Oreos,” Colbert said, referencing his Donald Trump-Oreos bit. “You know, first show you want to do a lot.” Colbert said the “computers kept crashing” when they were trying to send it to the network after editing it down, and just minutes before the show was supposed to air at 11:35 p.m. So you could imagine how exciting that was for all of us, after CBS had plastered my face on every flat surface on the planet.” (The “Late Show” airs at 11:35 p.m.) As we all know by now, Colbert’s “talented tech team” came through in the clutch and the show did air – on time.

And the best part of all, Colbert realized he had a great anecdote on his hands, no matter the outcome: “If we don’t [make it to air], it will still be a pretty interesting story at the theater camp I will be running in Idaho.”
