‘The Colbert Report’ Says Goodbye with Dozens of Stephen’s Closest, Most Famous Friends


The final episode of The Colbert Report aired last night, and in it Stephen killed death himself and ascended into eternity – with Alex Trebek, naturally. But before flying off into another realm, he had some of his best pals join him in song. Everybody from Jon Stewart and Michael Stipe to Henry Kissinger and Samantha Powers to Bryan Cranston and James Franco and literally dozens of others. It was a pretty great — and surprisingly touching — way to send this incredible show off. Below, watch Colbert’s final Word, him cheat death, and his final sendoff.
