Stephen Colbert announces a week of 'Late Show' episodes from Russia

Stephen Colbert announces a week of 'Late Show' episodes from Russiaā€¯

Stephen Colbert returned from his recent trip to Russian Federation just in time to host The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. But the NBC comic might want to keep the champagne on ice.

Fallon's average total viewership of 2.66 million - versus Colbert's 2.62 million - secured the first late-night victory for NBC since the week ended January 20, according to Nielsen.

Stephen Colbert made a surprise trip to Russian Federation last week, and returned to the Late Show with Stephen Colbert last night to kick off a special week filled with segments filmed there.

Colbert has taken "Late Show" to new heights with his Trump takedowns, although it's uncertain how long his political satire will satisfy the late-night crowd. While appearing on a Russian talk show, he announced that he was "considering" a presidential run in 2020, and asked the Russians for help getting him elected.

CBS also expects that Colbert will win when people who watch on a time-delayed basis are tallied.

"I'm just exhausted of Trump", she said on a panel about her show on May 16.

"I don't know if you knew this but I was in Russian Federation last week", he told his audience.

He continued, "Also got some attention from American intelligence. I would have my son-in-law ask them". "Russian intelligence - hard-core fans, evidently, followed me everywhere".

"But it's important, keep your eye on a comedian while he's in Russian Federation doing jokes", he said. I could be over there giving state secrets to the Russians. "Oh, wait. Somebody's already got that covered". "The night before the election I was like, 'I'll never have to talk about Donald Trump again'". He even went so far as to make a sex-related joke about Putin and Trump last month that had Trump and his supporters calling for Colbert to be sacked by CBS.
