Coincidentally enough, a projection purportedly of God appeared on the roof of the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the Late Show is filmed. "As I was leaving, I was like, 'Somebody is going to be happy today, yes, '" she told People for this month's cover story. I'm a huge fan of yours too, God.

Pleasantries aside, Colbert pressed God to explain the goal of his unannounced visit. "I don't have the DNA for it", the star said.

"I hear thou seeketh a sign", he continued before holding up a sign that read, "Run". "Oh, I know", "God" responded. "Oprah", she told him.
