The Colbert Report is inching closer to the end. The lineup leading up to Stephen Colbert‘s final show on Thursday, Dec. 18, starts with a guest appearance on Dec. 15 from Seth Rogen, plugging The Interview — which, given the recent Sony hacking drama, is sure to be an entertaining one. On Dec. 16, rapper Kendrick Lamar stops by for an interview and performance. Military veteran Phil Clay visits on Dec. 17 to discuss his book, Redeployment, which earned Clay the 2014 National Book Award for fiction. Last but not least, Grimmy, Colbert’s “colleague and lifelong friend” aka the Grim Reaper will cap off the show’s nine-year run.

The pundit we all love to love described the final days as only he could: “Our last week of shows are going to be really special, just like every other week.”

For those who just can’t get enough Colbert, Comedy Central plans to air classic episodes on Thursday from 10 a.m. up until the final show airs at 11:30 p.m. ET.

Colbert takes over as host of the Late Show when David Letterman signs off on May 20, 2015.

AskMen Makes Room for the ‘Almost-Influencers’

Top49MenLogoOnce upon a time, AskMen decided to put together the annual list “Top 99 Most Desirable Women.” The success of that compilation spawned, in 2006, the spin-off “Top 49 Most Influential Men” and this week it’s time to peruse the 2013 edition.

To AskMen’s credit, they didn’t stop at encompassing the likes of Robin Thicke (#7), Pope Francis (#25) and Shane Smith (#46). They also share the names of some of the dudes who *almost* made the list:

Rapper Kendrick Lamar not only burned bridges, he set fire to the two connecting towns, using lyrics as lighter fluid. The Compton, CA lyricist played arsonist on Big Sean’s song “Control” by crowning himself the king of rap and throwing shade on past and present collaborators like Drake, A$AP Rocky and even Big Sean himself.
