Quotes from the news wire:
There's a bit of an addiction metaphor here because you can't quit President Donald Trump cold turkey, they're going to find it's tough to move on because the stories will continue to play out. I mean, Stephen Colbert'll criticize every single thing that Biden does, and there's the story of the insurrection. So until all of that becomes resolved, President Donald Trump will still be a massive story for everybody, including late-night.
I am confident that Stephen Colbert'll do well, stephen Colbert may not do as well as Stephen Colbert's been doing because I do think there's a tune-in factor that' President Donald Trump did something outrageous, so I have to see what Stephen Colbert says.' However, I do think Stephen Colbert's come into Stephen Colbert own as a late-night host.
