Take a tour of The Colbert Report studio before it’s demolished tonight

New, 8 comments

Tonight is the final night for Stephen Colbert’s political satire The Colbert Report. Fortunately, his iconic New York City studio has been preserved with the help of Google’s Street View tech for businesses, aka, Business View. So why not take a tour before it’s torn down? Even if you never had a chance to attend in person you can still marvel at the cheapness of the chairs provided to the audience. Stroll right on up to the tchotchkes and books on Colbert’s shelves including, of course, a copy of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged. Get lost inside his infinite portrait above the mantle and squint at the two bottles of "Fred" tucked off-stage behind the shrouded cameras. Is it whiskey? Is it the hot dog-flavored water of Fred Durst? It’s whatever fits your personal definition of truthiness.

Colbert is moving to CBS next year to succeed David Letterman as host of the Late Show, with Larry Wilmore filling the vacated slot (and Colbert’s old studio) that follows The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore is to premiere on January 19th.
