The biggest event on TV this week is a sad one: the end of The Colbert Report and a goodbye to the "Stephen Colbert" character. The final episode airs Thursday night, and as his final guest Colbert welcomes "Grimmy", his lifelong friend. Sounds like things could get a lil dark.
That's not the only goodbye this week: Friday, Craig Ferguson says farewell on his last Late Late Show with guest Jay Leno. Also that night, The Birthday Boys wrap up season 2 with sketches based off of their favorite summer. And on Saturday, be sure to catch Amy Adams host SNL.
Elsewhere in late night, The Daily Show has guest Chris Rock, Letterman has guests Rosie [...]

While the broadcast networks' season finales are behind us, HBO's sitcoms Silicon Valley and Veep will return after a hiatus this weekend. Silicon Valley will end its eight-episode first season Sunday, but it was quickly renewed for a second season shortly after its premiere so there's plenty more to come. SyFy is debuting its new comedy show, The Wil Wheaton Project, tonight, and NBC continues to roll out its summer programming with the premiere of Undateable, a comedy starring Chris D'Elia and Ron Funches and produced by Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Cougar Town).
