late show with stephen colbertFIRST ON THRONG – In a surprising but probably good move, Eleven will be the home of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. The show was expected to air across the Ten Network but many expected it to be carried on the primary channel. When you think about it, it makes much more sense to air the show on Eleven. Firstly, it will air at around 11:30 most nights, probably an hour earlier than what it would have received on Ten. Secondly, it means that Corden will air directly after making for a late night double with no overlap from the primary channel. The show begins Wednesday 9th September at 11:30pm, which is the same day turn around as America. The show begins in America on September 8th, which is about lunchtime September 9th in Australia.
