NEW YORK - Nov. 10, 2022 - The Peabody Award-winning series THE LATE SHOW with STEPHEN COLBERT today announced that former first lady of the United States Michelle Obama will be a guest on Monday, Nov. 14 (11:35 PM, ET; 10:35 PM, CT) on the CBS Television Network, and available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
Mrs. Obama's appearance takes place on the eve of her newest book release, The Light We Carry: Overcoming in Uncertain Times, an inspiring follow-up to her critically acclaimed, #1 bestselling memoir Becoming.
