Fans of Colbert's show will recall his trip to Russia for "Russia Week," which aired for a week in July. A notable segment followed Colbert as he investigated the origins of what he dubbed "the Pee Pee Tape." The tape in question allegedly shows President Donald Trump watching prostitutes urinate on a bed as described in the now-infamous Trump dossier released by BuzzFeed in January. In July, the show aired a Cribs-style clip of Colbert touring the presidential suite at the Ritz-Carlton in Moscow where the activities allegedly took place.

Stephen Colbert followed by Russian and US intelligence during trip to Russia . THE Late Show host has just returned from Russia where he claims he was followed by both US and Russian intelligence agents.

After telling Colbert that it was a pleasure to have him on the show (he joked that the other late-night hosts "are assholes"), he asked about Colbert's trip. "[It was] a little spooky," he recalled, explaining that he wanted to travel to the country specifically to learn more about possible Russian involvement in the election, and of course, the infamous tape. Conan quipped, "We used to have classier scandals: Teapot Dome and Watergate. And now we have Pee Pee Tape."

Explaining that he had "to give the people what they want," Colbert decided to rent a room at the Ritz-Carlton to investigate further. "I went over there and I looked at it, and it's totally believable," Colbert joked.

When asked why the alleged tape was believable, Colbert said that he was warned that he would be under surveillance during his stay. "They said, just know that they're going to see you constantly. So I was naked all the time, just buck-ass naked doing downward-facing dog all the time," he joked. The late-night host also explained how he found wires behind the mirror in the presidential suite, the room Trump allegedly stayed in.

"We were followed everywhere we went," he recalled, explaining that agents would make clear he knew who they were. "We were followed by the Russians and we were followed by Americans, like American intelligence was following us around. For reasons I can't begin to tell you - why clown boy here had to be followed," he added, referring to himself.

Conan at the Apollo will continue Tuesday with guests Keegan-Michael Key and Jon Dore on TBS.

Late night hosts condemn 'horrifying' Al Franken .
Late night TV hosts had quite a few thoughts about Sen. Al Franken on Thursday night's shows. After TV host Leeann Tweeden accused Franken of kissing and groping her without her consent in an article published Thursday morning, hosts including Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and Trevor Noah tackled the allegations against the Minnesota senator, with a mix of wry humor and genuine frustration. "Come on, Franken!" Colbert said during his Late Show monologue. “I guess there are no good people left, so let’s just get it over with. Just tell us whatever you did, Jimmy Carter, Barack Obama, Tom Hanks, Malala." "As a fellow comedian, I have long admired Al Franken," he continued. "But I gotta say, this does not bode well for Louis C.K.'s Senate hopes." On the Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon cracked a similar joke to Colbert's about accused sexual predators running for political office. “Radio host Leeann Tweeden came forward and said Sen. Al Franken groped her without her consent, and she posted a photo as evidence,” he said. “In fact, it’s so bad, Franken’s already a frontrunner for president in 2020.” The Daily Show's Trevor Noah was similarly aghast at the news, criticizing the widely-circulated picture of Franken appearing to grope Tweeden while she was asleep. "Al Franken? #YouToo?" he said. "Even if there wasn't a woman in that picture, that pose is its own crime.
