On September 8, Stephen Colbert made his debut as host of The Late Show With Stephen Colbert. Was he nervous? "I've got butterflies," he admitted to WCBS TV reporters in New York before the broadcast. "If you're not nervous, you're probably not trying."
Even with the butterflies, the Emmy-winning comedian, producer, author, actor and former host of the The Colbert Report got through first night without a hitch as he literally hitched his legs for some high kicks with bandleader Jon Batiste. Colbert also rocked out and twirled to house band, Stay Human.
