“Les Moonves is gone,” Colbert joked, “for at least nine months, until he does a set at the Comedy Cellar.” Colbert also said on The Late Show that he found Ronan Farrow's new New Yorker bombshell article on Moonves' alleged sexual misconduct "extremely disturbing." After Colbert's show, fellow CBS late-night host James Corden addressed Moonves' departure, saying: "A late-night host’s job is to come out and make jokes about the news, but sometimes that news isn’t very funny. It’s been a very difficult day here at CBS, but that pales in comparison to how difficult it must be for the many women who are coming forward."
