If you've been reading the news, which you kind of have to nowadays, the United States is having some sort of election. Two pretty big dummies are running and everyone is mad at the other side. But watch as one of the side's biggest names goes live on Showtime following the election results. Deadline announced that Stephen Colbert will host a live special on the premium cabler called Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going To Clean Up This Shi*t? Showtime's appeal for the special, as noted by Networks president and CEO David Nevins, is that Colbert can curse. Joy! Colbert will "react" as state by state results come in while the special itself is slated for an hour. There will also be guests and remotes. Think of it as a louder version of his CBS show. There will probably be more applause breaks too.
