Jodie Whittaker Announced for Tonight’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
In a last minute announcement, Doctor Who star Jodie Whittaker has been revealed as one of Stephen Colbert’s guests for tonight’s edition of The Late Show.
The Late Show airs on CBS in the United States at in most U.S. markets at 11:35 p.m. Eastern and Pacific and 10:35pm in the Central and Mountain time zones. Segments are frequently posted to The Late Show’s official Facebook page and YouTube channel the next day. So global viewers should check there tomorrow for Colbert’s interview with Whittaker.
Colbert is notoriously a huge pop culture fan and has previously had Doctor Who stars David Tennant and Matt Smith as guests. Most recently, he asked Tennant about Whittaker’s casting and the complaints from a small subset of fandom about it, which the former Doctor laughed off as “irrelevant.”
The Late Show is a legendary cornerstone of American late night schedules since 1993, when it originally hosted by David Letterman. In 2015 Stephen Colbert, previously of The Colbert Report and The Daily Show, replaced Letterman as the host. It’s broadcast from the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City.
Colbert’s other guests tonight are actor and comedian Nick Kroll, from Netflix’s Big Mouth and singer Cat Power.
