Stephen Colbert made his highly-anticipated debut on the “Late Show” Tuesday and millions of viewers who were glued to their TVs also simultaneously shared their opinions of the premiere on social media.
However, it was Colbert’s sugary feeding frenzy that turned out to be the biggest hit on social media after a skit comparing the media coverage of Donald Trump to eating Oreos.
“Damn you … now I want Oreos and all I have is grapes,” one user wrote.
A shout-out to former “Daily Show” colleague Jon Stewart was another winner, being described on Twitter as “pure class.”
“To our friends at @colbertlateshow, congrats on your first show and hopefully dozens more. Break a finger,” Fallon wrote, in reference to his own busted digit.
“The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” airs at 11:35 p.m. on CBS.

You can take the Colbert out of the Report but you can't take the Report out of the Colbert. #LateShow

I just realized the MAGIC for which we're in store if Trump goes after Stephen Colbert. #LateShow

As Carrie Bradshaw once said, "Clooney's like a Chanel suit, he'll always be in style." #LateShow
