  • Stephen Colbert says that he can Easily Handle the Upcoming Super Bowl

Stephen Colbert has said that he can easily handle the upcoming Super Bowl with deftness and economy. This is seldom seen in others who have accomplished the remarkable act.

The Super Bowl 50 broadcast is due on February 7th and it will attract a viewership of 110 million. But now it seems that all previous records of viewership are up to be broken.

The Late Show will air after Super Bowl 50, bringing millions of new viewers to the CBS Late Night Show. Will it be enough to catch Fallon?

It just goes to show you that the media movers and shakers have full confidence in Stephen. He has taken the world by storm ever since he stepped off the rostrum of the Colbert Report at Comedy Central.

While on that platform, he satirized such pompous political pundits as Bill O’Reilly. Later on he took over the space reserved for David Letterman. Stephen Colbert led the Late Show on a trip of grandeur where a large viewership watched his ever move.    

Stephen Colbert’s show has overtaken Jimmy Kimmel’s as the #2 show for a mature adult audience. Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show is at the top with a lot of votes in its popularity rating.

The Super Bowl will be a sight to see this time around. All eyes will be on the one and only Stephen Colbert who will be up to his old antics of parody and lively behavior.

Stephen is doing his skit from the Big Apple instead of from San Francisco. When asked regarding this, he spoke of how a live show is a difficult proposal and he wanted to perform within the context of a friendly place. 

He was interviewed by Adweek regarding what he had planned for the special Super Bowl 50 Late Night Show. Stephen said that everything was connected to the Super Bowl. A live analysis of who won the ads will take place too.

The game will be keenly observed and the script will get written along the way. Most of the jokes undergo a turnover every few minutes on the Super Bowl show.

Stephen admits that it will be a first for many who have not seen him doing the Super Bowl racket. This is a golden chance for Stephen Colbert to attract an even bigger audience for his own Late Show.  

Asked if he was nervous regarding this test of nerves, Stephen said that since it was live, yes, it was like going through a phase where the heat was on. And since Stephen had to do his job over the long haul, it would be exhausting to the extreme.

Otherwise he had tons of energy to do his work in the long run. It was only when Thanksgiving came along that Stephen finally got a handle on the situation at hand. After hours of watching the games and taking notes, Stephen and his team knew that they had the stuff under their thumb.  

The graphics were deleted and the script was written in a hurry. Playing around with the script was in the works. Stephen confesses this much that he was afraid to move from Comedy Central onto another show. He was apprehensive about the whole deal at first.

Then he realized that the show was his baby and he had to feed it right. So he took extra care to give the next job as much attention as he had lent the previous one. Stephen Colbert doesn’t miss the Colbert Report though. It is a case of “been there, done that”. 

Colbert believes in integrated advertising. It is the name of his game on the Super Bowl show. He sees advertising as a beast that has a certain nature. And since it symbolized modern life itself, there was a certain sense of modernity and liveliness that it reminded one of.

Advertising makes life worth living like language itself. It was giod clean fun that gave consumers their right to choose what they bought.

Like Letterman before him, Stephen is obsessed with ratings to a certain extent. But he does not want to call his rationality into serious questioning thanks to his obsession. 

CBS meanwhile has been supportive of Stephen through all this. They want to buck him up every step of the way. His biggest fears have turned out to be just that…fears.

CBS likes Stephen and there are no two ways about it. His many guests that he interviews and examines in depth have shared everything from hilarious moments as well as their deepest darkest secrets with him.

Stephen in particular remembers when Vice President Biden talked about the tragic death of his son. It was a very personal moment. And Stephen evaluated the sorrow and made the Vice President share his own story.

The loss of his son made him feel a pain that only a parent can know about. Stephen Colbert knows how to talk in a human way to human beings. He can be said to be blessed as a media man with a heart of gold.
