Possibly the greatest show ever conceived.
He toned down a bit from that promo.
I kinda got tired of the format though. He does not let enough room for his guests. I know it's character, but at some point you have to wonder if he should really have guests.
The Daily Show remains my favourite of the two, now.
Daily Show is good but it's not all that funny these days, closer to a serious talk show at this point. Their election coverage was kind of painful, I made it less than 10 minutes before I had to put on CNN.
I agree that Colbert isn't nearly as good an interviewer, but the upside of that is that the show's writers seem to have a lot more room to stretch out, and to me at least it's more funny more consistently.
They're both good though.
When the guests are uncomfortable and don't know how to react it's pretty good, though. When they try to play along, not so much.

Five stars, but Colbert jumped the shark ages ago. He was a victim of his own success- he went from a master of deadpan delivery and subtle commentary, to a giggling schoolgirl whose material primarily consists of him talking about how great he is.
Wait, shit, I submitted this. You'll have to pardon me, I lost about 4 hours of sleep staying up for the elections, spent most of the day in line at the unemployment office because there was only one person on staff for the entire North Shore of Massachusetts, and last night's celebratory nachos gave me the shits. So I'm not operating at full capacity right now.
