Since CBS will be spending all night on election coverage, Stephen Colbert has been kicked over to Showtime for his Election Night special tonight. The move will allow Colbert and the Late Night team to go uncensored and Colbert won’t have to cover his middle finger like he did during the November 7 show.

Stephen Colbert’s Live Election Night Democracy’s Series Finale: Who’s Going to Clean Up This Sh*t? (yes, that is the entire official title of the special) will start at 11 p.m. ET on Showtime.

The line-up of guests for the special are Elle King, Katy Perry, Patton Oswalt, Nick Offerman, Jeff Goldblum, Jena Friedman and political commentators Mark Halperin, John Heilemann and Mark McKinnon. Halperin and Meilemann host Showtime’s The Circus series.

Colbert’s former Daily Show colleague Larry Wilmore will also stop by. Showwime is also teasing “more,” so perhaps Jon Stewart will visit again. Wilmore, Colbert and the other comedians on the show will get to swear and curse as much as they want since the special iars on premium cable.

Showtime also plans on streaming Colbert’s uncensored monologue on the Showtime Facebook page, so those without a Showtime subscription can still see some of the special.
