Stephen Colbert Megyn Kelly
Stephen Colbert has managed to snag a highly sought after guest for his big Super Bowl Special.
Colbert’s special Super Bowl Sunday edition of The Late Show — the first late-night show to ever air directly after the Super Bowl — has added Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly to its scheduled guest list.
Kelly has been in the news lately after her ongoing feud with Donald Trump inspired the Republican presidential frontrunner to skip last week’s Fox News debate. Colbert covered that Trump-less debates by pitting contradictory clips of the candidate against each other.
As reported by USA today, Kelly joins an already-stacked cast of guests, including Will Ferrell, Tina Fey, Margot Robbie, Jordan Peele, and Keegan Michael-Key. Each of them have new projects out soon: Ferrell’s in Zoolander 2, Fey and Robbie costar in Whiskey Tango Foxtrot, while Key and Peele will soon bring their comedy duo antics to the big screen in Keanu.
I refuse to call Megyn Kelly a bimbo, because that would not be politically correct. Instead I will only call her a lightweight reporter!

Trump appeared on the Late Show in September.

James Corden also has big plans for his “Late Late Show” after the Super Bowl (CBS puts that start time at 11:35 p.m.)
Elton John will join Corden for Carpool Karaoke, the most famous sketch from Corden. Corden wowed the Internet with previous carpool guests Stevie Wonder and Adele.
Corden’s other guests will be Zac Efron, Anna Kendrick and Adam DeVine. Corden’s show originates from CBS Television City in Los Angeles. Corden also plans re-creations of classic Super Bowl commercials, a tailgate party and a Baby Bowl. Reggie Watts and the house band will perform throughout the show.
