Stephen Colbert still has a few weeks until he slides into that new spot as host of The Late Show, so naturally the guy wants to do some practice. Rather than run through his show at the Ed Sullivan Theater, Colbert decided to take over the Monroe, Michigan local TV show Only in Monroe. 

Not just a short segment, but the entire 40-minute show. 

The show included highlights like Stephen reading Monroe community events (insider tip: don't mix beer and muskrat meat).

Painting his nails. Because Colber's gotta look pretty. 

Quizzing Michigan native Eminem on Bob Seger songs. (Spoiler alert: Eminem did poorly.)
