12:02 am
i would say half an inch is a pretty good number. the very temperatures satellite and radar, nothing is going on out there the rain chances are up around buffalo. the cold front will be pushing through the area. you can see the motion on the screen. the rain will pull out here. yes, you're going to get rain, but not an all day rain, and then a nice weekend awaits. once we get the wet weather out of here, that's saturday and sunday. 8:00in the morning, an isolated area, and you will see the line come through. it's 2:30. north and west of the area. 5:00, could have lain on top of the metro, secondary line is out there as well. it's gone, out of here, and you're ready for the weekend, and 75 for tomorrow. the extended forecast showing you saturday, you're looking at, yeah, it's right after midnight, 7:04. they got me again. the 7-day forecast jumping ahead. 75 on saturday, 65 on sunday with a nice sky. monday and tuesday of next week, hovering around 70 degrees. >> that computer is way too

12:08 am
they will head back to citi field for game 3 on monday. they have to try to steal one or get greedy and take two out west. kershaw in game one, and greinke in game two. it will not be easy, but they have played great baseball this season. the manager thinks they are built to handle the postseason pressure. >> when you have to go to work every day in new york city when the competition we have and our fan base and everything else, there's extra. when you can respond positively to that and don't let that get to you, i think you can play anywhere. >> i don't think the group of guys could believe in each other more than we do. we are here to show the world we are ready to play, we are con tenders, and we want to win the whole thing. >> alds action. the bluejays' first playoff action since '93. ron binson curnos, off price. the price is wrong. texas takes game one, 5-3. the astros and royals in game one of their series. someone didn't get the memo. it says yankees. they didn't let that bother

(cheers and applause) >> stephen, stephen, stephen! stephen, stephen, stephen! >> stephen: thank you, everybody. thank you so much!
12:17 am
welcome to the late show. (cheers and applause) welcome to the late show starring stephen colbert, i'm he. if you are tuning in for the very first time let me catch you up with the show so far. i started hosting a few weeks ago. and you're all caught up. now i don't know if you knew this, you probably knew this, jon, because are you an artist, you write your own lyrics. it's national poetry day. so i want to give a shout out to all fans of poetry out there everywhere, okay. and speaking of poetry, i also want to give major respect to the man from nantucket. all right? you keep up the good work, sir. i would have you on the show but i know you don't leave the house much. (laughter) we've got a great show for you tonight. i will be talking to academy award-winning actress cate
12:18 am
lovely. she stars in the new movie "truth" where she plays a cbs employee who gets fired and we might talk about something else instead. (laughter) i will talk with c.e.o. of airbnb brian chesky. but if -- if the landlord asks, he's my cousin and he's just visiting. (cheers and applause) oh. oh, did you-- did you just hear that sound? i hope so, because this would be a terrible time for me to start hallucinating. that is jon batiste and stay human, everybody. say hello. (cheers and applause) before we surrender our body and soul to the music, one more thing.
12:19 am
commercial with ibm supercomputer watson and incredibly watson was able to decrypt almost every word he sang. tonight stephen welcomes cate blanket-- blanchet, airbnb chee brian chesky and dartmouth robotics. featuring jon batiste and stay human. and now it's time for the late show with stephen colbert!
12:20 am
(cheers and applause) >> stephen: whoa! that sounded good. that sounded good. that sounds really good. (cheers and applause) you guys feeling wood? everybody doing all right tonight? me too, i got to say i'm feeling lucky and grateful to be alive. i'm counting my blessings. i'm up to four and a thumb. but you know who really had a rough day? those folks over at e-bible fellowship. they're a church group in pennsylvania that predicts the end of the world and not as their name would suggest a book club that reads the bible only on kindle. these folks got famous a few years back for predicting that judgement day would fall on may 21st, 201 -- you probably saw those save the date billboards.
12:21 am
requested the vegetarian option at the apocalypse. well, it tushes out their math was a little off. i think they forgot to carry one of the hearstmen. but they took another look at the book of revelation recently, crunched the numbers through their jesus call coup later and discovered that in fact the planet was supposed to be permanently destroyed yesterday, october 7th. and spoiler alert, (laughter) (cheers and applause) anyway, i have some sympathy for those guys. i'm sure they feel terrible today. probably for a lot of reasons. cuz you know that one thing you said you would be willing to do if the world was going to come to an end? they probably did that last night. it's going to be awkward at work today. hey, brenda. so i'm sending the folks at
12:22 am
sympathy card. it says my deepest condolences for everything still existing. but you did believe e-bible fellowship you can't be too surprised. though their pamphlet says that october 7th, 2015 will be the end. world, they hedge their bet by adding there is a strong likelihood. strong likely hood t might happen. but if it doesn't, it is not like it's the end of the world. so they got it wrong. but to be fair, i can understand why they thought the end of the world was comingment because there was one sign of the apocalypse last night, the cubs won a play-off game. the cubs have won a play-off game. >> overnight the chicago cubs snapping their losing streak in epic fashion winning their first layoff
12:23 am
dozen years fans taking to the streets in celebration. >> stephen: whooo!, that's right, the cubs are headed to the national league division series. cubs fans were so excited they ran that you the streets an when they horde the team won, they continued to do so and folks. this is a pretty big deal for me. sure i love new york but i lived in chicago for eleven years. cheers-- (cheers and applause) >> stephen: and the windy city will always be part of me. specifically my lower intest inthat is sill packed with a fair amount of sausage. and the division series is important. it's like the world series of things that eventually series. which means the cubs are still in contention it has been 107 years since the cubs won the world series.
12:24 am
then the song went take me out to the ball game cholera. (laughter) they added the cracker jacks later. when they found out that cured cholera. but most importantly, last night's victory mate mean the cubs have finally escaped the curse of the billy goat. now for those of you who don't know, the curse of the billy goat began in 1945 when a tavern owner brought his goat to wrigley field for the world series because everyone knows goats love baseball. and when they were thrown out, the man declared, you are never going to win the world series again! because you insulted my goat. and ever since then, the
12:25 am
curse of the goat, as well as the curses of bad management and unwillingness to pay for good players. in fact-- (cheers and applause) in fact, the curse is so ledge onlyary that a few weeks ago in order to reverse the curse, a team of competitive eaters ate a 40 pound goat. somehow still more healthy than eating ballpark nachos. but now it looks like the days of the curse are behind my cubs. sure, technically they still need to win 11 more games over the course of three more best had series but i think i can safely say without any fear of jinxesing, they're going all the way. the cubs are going to win the world series. yeah. i guarantee it! i guarantee it. i am not scared of you knuckle kneeed sheep wanna-bes any more.
12:26 am
so many things i've wanted to say about your kind for years. but i've been too scared because of the curse. not any more. first off, your cheese sucks, okay. you can get the same flavor by leaving a brick of philadelphia cream cheese to dry out. secondly, nice beard, soul patches went out in the '70s. oh, that burn has got to feel pretty baaaaad. what are you going to do about it, goats? curse the cubs again? i dare you. the cubs are unstopable. i've even already got my 2015 cubs world series championship shirt all printed up. (cheers and applause) >> stephen: whooo! let's hear it for the cubbies. whooo! whooo! that guy isn't celebrating. who is that guy not celebrating? (laughter) kick him out of here. you kick him out of here.
12:27 am
you get out of here, right now! no, no, you get out. good riddance. (cheers and applause) there is no possible way this decision can come back to haunt me or the cubs. after all, the chicago cubs are clearly the greatest of all time! let's hear it for the cubs. goats, goats, goats. we'll be right back. goats, goats, goats! >> the late show with stephen colbert sponsored by at&t, directv and at&t are
12:28 am
and wireless together. we're the open water paddlers. the best part about kayaking together are times like this. here's to friends who reac for better. fewer carbs, fewer calories, superior taste. michelob ultra.
12:29 am
geico motorcycle, great rates for great rides. there's got to be a way to redeem our hotel points. i just want to take a vacation. this seems crazy. tell us something we don't know, captain obvious. ok. with, when you collect 10 nights you get one free.
12:30 am
we are the largest and most diverse school district in america! yet we are one!
12:31 am
one thousand eight hundred schools! sharing one common goal. help all kids succeed. we're new york city public school teachers. taking learning to the next level. and parents and the community are on board! all coming together... one. to celebrate the passion and promise of our public schools. i'm michael mulgrew, president of the united federation of teachers. cmon! join us! (cheers and applause) >> stephen: hey. folks, if you watch the show you know i'm a bit of a tech geek, i don't want to brag am but my car has both am and fm.
12:32 am
launch my brand-new gadget celebrating segment tonight. we're going to call it tech talk. and we plan an opening graphic with some amazing 3d like nanobotts exploding off the screen and then forming the words tech talk and then the tech talk than o botts explode and become tiny nanobotts which form my face that form the words tech talk. like nothing anybody would ever see and they never will because we thought of it at 12:00 today and there was no time to make it. so instead this is true, i looked around my office and i noticed that i own a didgeridoo-- didgeridoo.
12:33 am
digital doo. it's a rich and personal instrument. first up, on digital doo, wearable technology. not i don't leave the house without my google glass, my apple watch and two nintendo power gloves. you never know when you might be attacked by an 8-bill mike tyson. so i'm alwaysing for new ways to put computers on my body. which is why my wifi was on full bars when i heard that google an levies are now collaborating to make smartpants. about time, my old dumb pants can't even remember my waste size. it's 32 you idiot. you're strangling me. (laughter) i can't feel my butt. apparently google is developing a new digital type of fabric that you can touch and it can feel it and it also bluetooths your phone.
12:34 am
side of your jeans to mute your phone, even tap the fabric for playing any song. which means pretty soon all your calls can be butt dials. and thanks to the new google smartpants, you won't have to reach all the way to your pocket to use your phone. you could just swipe the outside of your pocket, fitting several precious seconds per day. and that's time you could spend explaining to the police why you are rubbing your crotch in public. (laughter) (cheers and applause) next up on digital doo, it might be hard to believe but i'm old enough to have children, that i know of. (laughter) and any parent will tell you that teenagers these days
12:35 am
are masters of tech. but there is a new technology that will help parents master the teen. >> a new line of cars could play tattle tale on teen drivers. general motors will install an optional system in some 2016 chevy malibu models that will compile in touch screen report card for parents. it keeps track of how far your teen drove and their top speed. >> stephen: that's right. soon gm cars will have a new way to let parents know how their teens are driving. and it's much safer than the old way, texting your teen while they're driving. the technology is called teen driver. it's available only in the 2016 chevy malibu and parents, it's fully scaleable to your exact inability to sleep at night. for instance, it can sound an alert when teens drive faster than a speed limit predetermined by the parents. as for what that sound alert should be, i recommend a prayerie home companion. because it's impossible for a teen to joyride while
12:36 am
listening to an elderly man reminisce about rhubarb pie. and the system automatically compiles data on how many times teen pass those limits and makes that data accessible to any parent with a pin number. which is a great security feature after your teen teaches you how to use it. teen driver also prevents kids from bumping their jams by disabling the vehicle's audio system when the driver and front passengers aren't buckled. though once you are buckled, the music's bagging. but you're still in a chevy malibu. it's only going to get so cool. next up, (cheers and applause) selfies. they're fun. they bring people together and they eliminate the awkwardness of having to ask your roommate to take a picture of your junk.
12:37 am
but some of the most popular types of selfies are people doing something dangerous like posing with bears or running with bulls. and as fun as that looks, not all those photos end well. for example, two men died in russia while taking a selfie holding a hand grenade with the pin pulled. the mobile phone with the selfie survived as a record. so first of all that's a tragedy. second of all, what kind of phone case were they using? because it must be pretty good. now sure, the grenade probably holds some of the responsibility here. but let's not lose sight of one clear fact. selfies are killing people. but i don't want to panic you. >> i will leave that to the news. >> death by selfie. >> a disturbing trend here, selfies killing people. they killed more people than sharks over a 12 month period. >> there have been 12 selfie related deaths versus 8 reported shark fatallities. >> stephen: okay, that was a lot of technical information to digest.
12:38 am
i am really glad they made this chart. (laughter) let me walk you through-- let me walk you through some of the data. let me crunch it for you. that is the number 12. that is the number 8. and up here, that line is 20. now i just want to warn-- i want to warn my viewers out there, you are taking too many selfies, don't do it, it's just too dangerous. also stop getting attacked by so many sharks. it isn't safe. though if you are getting attacked by a shark, by all means, take a selfie. cuz man, your instagram is going to blow up. we'll be right back with
12:39 am
pain from your day can haunt you at night, don't let it. advil pm gives you the healing sleep you need, helping you fall asleep and stay asleep so your body can heal as you rest.
12:40 am
when cigarette cravings hit, all i can think about is getting relief. only nicorette mini has a patented fast-dissolving formula. it starts to relieve sudden cravings fast. i never know when i'll need relief.
12:41 am
(cheers and applause) >> stephen: welcome back, everybody. my first guest tonight stars in the new film "truth" playing a cbs news producer whose controversial report on president bush's military service ened her and dan rather's careers. >> how long have we known each other? >> is it that bad? >> they're going to start an investigation. and cbs wants to appoint an independent panel to take a look at how the story is put together. and i'm going to announce it. tomorrow. i have to apologize for the story on air.
12:42 am
apologize? >> he didn't ask,. >> dan, that's surrender. >> stephen: please welcome the great cate blanchett. (cheers and applause) >> i thought you might certain aid me with the didgeridoo as a mating call. >> stephen: are you australian, do you play didgeridoo. >> i did, i also played the bagpipe, the spoons, that is really hard. >> stephen: i'm actually making a sound. >> it's really difficult. that is really hard. (cheers and applause) >> are you truly. >> stephen: i'm doing it. i'm doing it.
12:43 am
the thing is you look really attractive while you do it. >> no, you don't. >> stephen: no, you really do, very manly. thank you for being here. i have to say, there are very few people who i actually get starstruck by and you are one. >> not one of them. >> stephen: you are absolutely one of them. you are such an amazing act res. >> thank you. >> stephen: a golden globe, two time academy award-winning acker known for such fills as lids beth, lord of the ring, not going to get into it, the aviator, blue jasmine, your latest film is "truth" where you play mary-- the producer that dan rather was using when he reported on president bush supposedly having gone awol when he was serving in the alabama national guard. >> stephen: that really blew >> it did. i mean, the question mark of the bush's service in the guard had long been socialized, was based. he describes texas as the intergal ac particular -- intergalactic capitol
12:44 am
[bleep] of -- >>. >> i did many times, it has been quite cathartic for her and for dan. a lot of people were chasing the story. and i wonder whether a story like that could even get as far as it did, you know. cuz i'm not from your great nation. and i-- but you know, obviously -- >> you are australian. >> he think of you as english because of all the parts but you are actually australian. >> i am part elf. >> stephen: i want to thank australian for giving journalism rupert murdoch. >> you can have him back. he has become one of yours.
