The FINAL episode of The Colbert Report airs tonight (tomorrow morning if you want to get technical) at 12:35am ep and after nine seasons the show has garnered more accolades than Gandalf himself. We could add the heap of reflective articles currently littering the Internet, but why water it down? Here’s a round-up of Colbert finale-related articles that are probably more eloquent than anything we could’ve put together. We’re going to miss you Stephen!

Vulture’s (the web site not the creature) got some great stuff including an interview with first head writer Allison Silverman, a cool retrospective with past guests and a think-piece dubbing Colbert “late night’s passionate book-nerd”.  


The New York Times has a decent article about the end of the show with quotes from Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O’Brien and Ricky Gervais. 

The Toronto Star counts down what it believes are the 10 best Colbert Report moments. It was probably tough to compile because there were like, a million great moments. 

Not one to miss out on reporting on huge moments in human history, TIME goes beyond simply calling it a great show and talks about Colbert changing the world, looks back on the show’s earliest reviews and greedily tells us what it wants to see in tonight’s finale.  
 

Pitchfork described last night’s Colbert auction where Michael Stipe was sold for an outlandish 25 cents. Rather than read it and try to imagine what happened, watch the full episode below!




The best way to celebrate The Colbert Report is to watch The Colbert Report, so don’t forget to tune in tonight where Stephen's final guest is Grimmy, The Grim Reaper, and if you’ve got some time, check out some past episodes
