Colbert quoted the New Yorker article as he mocked Moonves.
"A TV executive says she went into the Moonves office to discuss a job, and said she would have a glass of wine, left briefly, and when she came back, she said, she was not wearing pants – and it was excited … Wow, this is an awesome way to open a bottle of wine. "- STEPHEN COLBERT
Then he made a reverse reference The recent return of Louis C.K. on stage, less than a year after being publicly accused of sexual misconduct.
"In any case, the article is extremely disturbing, and I'm not surprised that it is so, Les Moonves is gone for at least nine months, until it does a set at Comedy Cellar." – STEPHEN COLBERT
Trump and Op-Ed
While the fallout continues from the anonymous Op-Ed article in the New York Times by a senior Trump administration official, Vice-President Mike Pence said over the weekend that he was willing to take a test with the truth to prove that he was not the author. Jimmy Kimmel, for example, thinks that Pence would have passed.
"Of course he would do a test for the truth machine, these tests measure changes in a person's pulse and breathing patterns – two things that amphibious creatures like Mike Pence do not have." JIMMY KIMMEL
Trevor Noah announced President Barack Obama's return to the electoral campaign. He is excited to see Obama and President Trump engage in a war of words in the coming weeks.
"It's onnnn! President Obama against President Trump .The leader against the tweeter." Yes, we can "against too much tan!" – " TREVOR NOAH
Colbert said he was happy to see Obama again, but he would have to recover from a sense of abandonment.
"Where have you been? You said you were going out for cigarettes! The guy you left us with had us photographed while he was spanking!" – STEPHEN COLBERT, huddled on the ground and referring to an unpleasant detail in the story of Stephanie Clifford of his alleged relationship with Trump
Punchiest Punchlines (Musk Edition)
"How do you know if Elon Musk is tall? Because even when he's sober it's like," Do you know what we should do? We should go to Mars. "-" TREVOR NOAH, responding to relationships that Elon Musk smoked marijuana in a late night webcast
"I heard of a college student in Canada who had e-mailed everyone to his school named Nicole, Nikki, Nicolette and Nic trying to find the woman he had met in a bar. like, & # 39; Phew, thank God I gave him a false name, he sounds a little crazy. & # 39; "- JIMMY FALLON
The bits that are worth watching
Seth Meyers dived in the revelations of Bob Woodward's new book, "Fear," and the White House response.
Jimmy Kimmel spoke with a woman and her family after she was videotaped giving birth to a moving car (she went online, of course). So Kimmel gave her a much-needed gift.
What we are excited about Tuesday night
The astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, a longtime friend of Colbert, will return to "The Late Show" on Tuesday.
