Stephen Colbert to reunite the 'Best f*ckin news team ever' on 'The Late Show'

It’s no coincidence that some of the best voices in late-night television are alumni of Jon Stewart’s Daily Show. How great would it be to get the band back together? 

No better time than the present: John Oliver, Samantha Bee, Stewart himself and more will appear on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert for the best f*cking news team reunion ever.

CBS announced the reunion — teased by Colbert on the show — in a brief release on Wednesday, saying little about the nature of the episode but promising appearances from Stewart, Bee, Oliver, Ed Helms, and Rob Corddry. Spoiler alert: Things will probably get political.

The special episode of The Late Show will air Tuesday, May 9 at 11:35 P.M. Eastern.
