    Macy and his loser wife cheat the system. I liked his acting when there were well written scripts. Too bad he and his wife didn't have someone scripting their own lives...might have worked out better. Losers.

    If you're into motorcycles do what all the bikers do,
    Rent that movie Easy Rider, Wild Hogs is not for you,
    John Travolta isn't sexy,
    Martin Lawrence isn't tough,
    Mr. Allen isn't funny,
    Only Macy's Got...the..stuff,
    Johnny go back to school,
    Martin your big momma's fool,
    and Tim....you're just a tool!

    I take it, that this is a remake of the British Original, is there anyone that has seen both? That could let me know, if it’s worth watching, or is it like The Office and Steptoe and Son? Which were mullered.....

    Love Macy He's an actor with amazing range. Unlike a lot of actors who can only play one kind of character (Cruise for instance), Macy can play any role and he's always perfect.

    Am I the only one who thinks Colbert tries a little hard sometimes? I've watched a number of interviews lately and it seems he often doesn't give the guests space to really tell their jokes or stories. Maybe it's just me.

    How about next time he goes skiing, he invites some really nice, but poor people, to go with instead of his spoiled brats? I want to go. I've not gone skiing in such a long time and have never gone skiing on real mountains, just hills. Rich people better start making things available to more people, or they are going to have a worldwide worker insurrection on their hands! It's not right, the way the USA is after Reaganomics. We NEED New Deal banking legislation and a top marginal tax rate like AOC says. 70% after $10 million. If you can't live off of $1500/mo like MOST Americans, then you don't know what a REAL problem is! If you are living a lifestyle that costs more than $75k/year, then you are way above everyone else and have no reason to bitch about ANYTHING!

    Whoever is in charge of the RU-clip videos for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, I BEG you, please get rid of the closing snippet with the Ed Sullivan Theater and the same bit of theme music ending every video. Every. Single. Video. Binge viewing, or at least viewing of a few videos by the same account in a row, is common. With the repetition of this sound bite, I know I become so irritated that I have to stop watching. I reluctantly admit that the sound actually sends me into a blind rage now. I know that's not reasonable, but it is what it is. Also, the links are completely pointless to anyone using their television or phone to watch the video, which I suspect would be the overwhelming majority of RU-clip viewers. The sometimes used first closing title screen (with the white background, airtime information, and social media account info) would be the perfect closing screen, and could use either the same background music as the rest of the video, or for videos not featuring background music, you could ask Jon Batiste if he minds coming up with a few soundbites. Ending the whole video with that would be an excellent solution!! Or you could make a few different closing sequences and rotate through them. There are so many options. Get creative with it, if that's something that tickles your fancy. To be clear, I don't mind seeing the same screen at the end of every video, just the repetitive sound. I am aware that this is not something that matters in the grand scheme of things (unless the repetitious nature of the sound in the videos now causes someone important to lose their mind). But I really do think it would increase your views; and it would be a great relief to fans whom want to watch all of your videos, instead of one or two. Thank you so much for reading this, if you do. I know it's not that serious, but please take my musings into consideration.

    A vicodin followed by a stool softener and her ski boots were on the wrong feet 😂. Poor older daughter on that ski trip! Stephen's quip was hilarious, "Was there a parent around to help?". William looks like he's turned up, relaxed bit dishevelled and ready for a beer. Funny all round 😆.

    Really CBS? You're gonna bleep the word "Christ" out of the Shameless clip? Has that risen to the status of the seven deadly words you can't say on TV? Guess we better start pixelating graven images too, so as nobody gets offended.
