MotileReviewed in the United States on April 14, 2020
5.0 out of 5 starsSteven Colbert humor is not for everyone
… mostly not for anyone who thinks Trump is a great American doing everything to help America.

But at least I know this show is intended as humorous. Yes, it is a bit tacky and low brow for the most part, but when your subjects are such low hanging fruit.. what ya gonna do? … colbert answer... make stupidade!
With all the 'stupid' coming from the mouth of our resident doltus poltus, this show will run strong until at least Janurary.

To all you one star people ... The 'charmer in chief' says and does ever-y-thing to serve only his own self interest and to line his pockets with more hamburders, and you guys are rushing away from here, marching lockstep to suck down some more poison koolaid given to you from a man that thinks and says some of the most stupid, inane, bigotted, ugly, terrible and useless claptrap garbage. Well, HAPPY GOOD FRIDAY to all of you... now git! The adults are watching some adult TV. Son, you just wouldn't understand the big words... like duh and yup.

5.0 out of 5 starsReally funny.
This is the work of those devious people at The Late Show! They should be ashamed of themselves especially Stephan Colbert. Boy, do hate him! Having to watch this crap night after night even on YouTube! I can't handle it anymore. My sides are splitting. I'm sending them my medical bills!

1.0 out of 5 starsCanceled My CBS All Access
Absolutely appalling, and disrespectful...which would be forgivable if it were at least funny (which it clearly is not). This is what CBS deems to be entertainment? I already canceled my CBS All Access. Shame!

5.0 out of 5 starsLMAO!
hilarious! I see it as making fun of all of us, conservatives and liberals and all in between. Yes, a bit disrespectful, but that's where the fun is.

1.0 out of 5 starsI got your "waste of space" right here ...k your channel CBS!
So I have disliked CBS more and more since they wouldn't pay equal wages to the Hawaii 5 O cast... add to is a leftist agenda after a few years I gave up. Came back to try Star Trek Discovery and can not stand it I tried did not like Michael Burnham, don't like that officers can be overweight or do their own thing or half of the agenda of the show.. but moving on I love many things about Picard (and I like Blue Bloods and most of Bull) but I am finally done with them for good will not support their crap with another cent.
