    No need, Larry Wilmore will be debuting his show January 19th, after the Daily Show.

    I'll check that show out too, but I really want to see how straight-up Colbert handles a talk show.

    Will Colbert be saying his name as Cole-bear still now that the character is done?

    He was also Col-bear when he was a correspondent on The Daily Show.

    But that Col-bear was the same one from the Colbert Report. He just took his act over to his own show.

    He's stated that the Late Night Colbert will not be the caricature that was on the Colbert Report. As for his name, guess we'll have to wait and see. There have been interviews where he's stated he's used Col-bear for a long time now.

    It wasn't the same character, though the seeds were there.

    But anyway, I believe he has said in the past that he has used it since college, and given that no one knows who Steven ColberT is, I can't imagine CBS will want him to drop the affectation.

    Jessica Williams interviews Alabama's "fetus" lawyer. A recently passed law allocates state funds to pay for lawyers to represent fetuses. Traditionally if a teen doesn't get parental consent for an abortion, she can go to court. With the new law, the teen is basically put on trial. So Jessica asks some important questions of the fetus lawyer:

    "You get a call from a fetus seeking legal representation..."

    "How do you maintain confidentiality with your client?"

    "How do you know if a fetus is innocent? A fetus can eat its twin in utero. It makes a conscious choice to gobble up its twin and you're just gonna let him walk?"

    I miss Colbert...

    And so far this hasn't made me miss him just a little less. It was pretty meh to me. I know it was only the first episode and you could tell he was nervous and they still need to work through a few things.

    I'll give it some more time, it just started, but for me... if they can't right the ship a bit I'm not sure how much time I will give it. Definitely at least a month.

    But they still can't drink alcohol until they're 21.

    The only person I know who can do a good roundtable discussion is Chris Hayes, and he's been doing it for a while. They need effort to set up correctly, and a firm, quick hand to make them function.

    So far, Nightly has promise and some good moments in the A and C blocks. The roundtable discussions are really bad.
