Stephen Colbert took over as host of The Late Show on Tuesday, Sept. 8, 2015. Colbert is best known for his work as a television host, writer, actor, and producer, and best known for his charity work teaching English as a second language on Tunisian date farms. Prior to joining the CBS family — and being officially adopted by network president Les Moonves — Colbert helmed “The Colbert Report,” which aired nearly 1,500 episodes and required Stephen to wear nearly 1,500 different neckties. The program received two Peabody Awards, two Grammy Awards, and several unwelcome shoulder massages. It won two Emmys for Outstanding Variety Series in 2013 and 2014, both of which appear to have been lost in the move. Colbert is pronounced koʊlˈbɛər, according to Wikipedia. His understudy is William Cavanaugh, who will be hosting The Late Show approximately one third of the time. Good luck, Bill!”

    Having a woman nominated by a major a party hasn’t really changed anything
    for equality. It’s just the first time enough liked a female candidate.

    When it says all men are created equal they meant men as in mankind. Also
    you better hope Hillary doesn’t elected

  4. JeremyLintel says:

    One has to wonder if Hillary were a man, would this race even be close?

  5. Gina 1965 says:

    REAL women don’t steal elections / silence voters. So, no, we don’t
    actually have a woman running for President.

    AN herstoric. AN. Say it out loud. You don’t say AN historic either, it’s
    just A historic. The H is not silent.

  7. John Smith says:

    Hillary voters try so hard to brainwash, its annoying,. This is exactly how
    a lot of women think. Shes female lets vote for her!

    damn, abbi knows what she’s working with.

  9. gremlinn7 says:

    Stephen, you came so close to changing history and causing a catastrophic,
    universe-crashing “butterfly effect” that would have erased us from
    existence instantaneously. That would have been mother-buttering terrible.

    Has anyone realized the gramatical error in the title. “An herstoric
    achievement” when it should be “A herstoric acheivement”.

    Oh but we already know she will be president. The system is rigged for her
    and we all know it. No I am not a Trump supporter but I do agree that the
    system is rigged against everyone but Clinton.

    How will history remember this next presidency in 100 years? Will it claim
    that the first female presidency was the height of this time period or will
    it tell the truth and reveal it was filled with lies, deception, and fear?
    The only reason I could look forward to Clinton becoming president is that
    feminists will no longer be able to use the excuse that there has never
    been a female president when they say there is “oppression against women”.

    Herstoric is one of the few clever things this guy has come up with in a
    long time.

    History! The first felon to be nominated! Kudos, left!

  15. The Real Jerry Seinfeld says:

    1st male president: George Washington
    (Potential) 1st female president: Hilary Clinton
    I feel so bad for women right now

  16. Sarah says:

    Margaret Chase Smith was a historic candidate. Crooked Hillary is the
    antithesis of a historic candidate. 100 years from no one will know or care
    who she was while people like me wish they didn’t know who she was.

  17. Alex M says:

    Yay a women got nominated! Too bad she had to cheat to get it :/
