Colbert show to air live after Trump's address to Congress

Posted: Updated:

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Stephen Colbert is going to have his say after President Donald Trump's address to a joint session of Congress.

CBS said that "The Late Show" will air live at 11:35 p.m. EST Tuesday, the night of Trump's scheduled speech.

Josh Earnest, former press secretary for the Obama White House, and actress Lisa Kudrow will be Colbert's guests on his 15th live show, CBS said Friday.

"Late Show" has been scoring ratings victories. It ranked as the most-watched late-night show in the past two weeks and is closing in on a third week at the top, CBS noted in its announcement.

Colbert, who honed his political comedy chops as a Comedy Central host, began edging up on leader Jimmy Fallon's "Tonight Show" after the election.

Watch The Late Show with Stephen Colbert weeknights at 11:35 p.m.
