Colbert was so miscast from the very start with this gig. CBS skews olllllld. Boomers are typically also conservatives. Bringing in a guy who made a living skewering Republicans probably wasn’t the smartest idea. The idea of not trying to offend certain groups is the antithesis of what Colbert Report was about. The only funny stuff on his show tends to be lampooning Trump, which is right in his wheelhouse.
