For a week, Fallon retakes the lead from Colbert

Colbert then joked that there's someone else American intelligence should be more interested in for their alleged Russia-related activities. That would be Russian Federation.

"It is good to be back in the U.S.A.", Colbert said at the start of the broadcast. He joked about not being alone while overseas, saying, "You know who did know I was in Russian Federation?" "If anyone would like to work on my campaign in an unofficial capacity, please just let me know", he said. "Hardcore fans, evidently, followed me everywhere". Couple guys seemed to pop up everywhere we went. But it's important. Keep your eye on a comedian. I could be over there giving state secrets to the Russians. "Oh, wait - someone's already got that covered", he added in reference to the investigations.

NBC's Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon took last week in total viewers, besting CBS's Late Show with Stephen Colbert for the first time since Donald Trump's Inauguration. "And I thought it would be better to cut out the middleman and just tell the Russians myself". "Russian intelligence", Colbert joked on Monday night's episode. "To be clear, all I said in that little clip there was that I was "considering" a run. I'd have my son-in-law ask them".

Colbert also teased Trump on Twitter, replying to the president's tweets about possible recordings of his conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey. While Trump has stated he didn't think Russian Federation was involved, he now blames former President Barack Obama.
