Late Show is really odd
The USA has been yearning for a return to enjoying the Late Show after retirement of Letterman. The set and theater for the Colbert Late Show is amazing. The money they saved by giving Letterman the bums rush out was lavishly spent for Colbert. Filling the void in the time slot was odds and ends from rerun junk room of forgotten canceled series.
I was looking forward to learning about latest movie projects for Scarlett Johansonn. Unfortunately, she could barely speak without a barrage from the Colbert stream of unconsciousness humor. She started to talk about her husband and their living in France. She was unable to complete a sentence without confusing diversions from the master of confusion Colbert.
Johansonn has a commanding screen presence amid the Avengers cast. She was not asked and could not discuss any projects of hers. Colbert was mugging his face for laughs and crouching as if ready to pounce on her during her brief time. I felt sorry for her strange treatment for supposed amusement.
Colbert has a huge following. This confirms that anyone can succeed in the USA. He essentially has no competition because the other national networks have embraced mediocrity as well. Colbert contorts his face as an old vaudeville entertainer who needs to exaggerate his expressions so the folks in the last row know they should laugh.
