Stephen Colbert-holics received the ultimate fix last night: The Comedy Central icon made his debut as host of The Late Show on CBS. (He’s succeeding David Letterman, who manned the post for 22 years.)
And it was everything Stephen fans wanted and more. Hints of Mr. Colbert’s CC persona shined through the night as he presented a series of gags, monologues, and bits with razor-sharp wit and irony. (Plus…subtle product placement! We saw you, Sabra hummus.)
Oh! And Oreos. During a particularly hilarious segment, Stephen equated his love for Donald Trump’s antics to the tasty cookie (which Mr. Trump recently said he’ll never eat again because Nabisco is moving its factory to Mexico). As Stephen showed his audience a ridiculous Donald clip, he rewarded himself with a cookie. As he played more and more snippets, Stephen’s eye for Oreos became, erm, wilder. He starts stuffing his face with Oreos as Donald videos play on loop.
By the end, he’s licking the bag in a fashion we typically reserve for Jason Sudeikis. Yum.
It’s an arousing, amusing, and hunger-inducing moment. You’ll want to gorge on Oreos and throw side-eye at Donald simultaneously after watching. But don’t take our word for it. Check out the video above, and if you skipped Stephen’s Late Show debut, here are three big things you missed:
