Our year-end roundup coverage begins with Stephen Colbert — who tells us the whole, unvarnished story behind The Colbert Report's ecstatic “Get Lucky” dance party. Sample:

I thought, “So wait, we’re flying them from Paris and they’re not gonna sing and they’re not gonna talk? What are we doin’?” And they said, “Do you want us to cancel?” “No, no, no — this is actually a really interesting challenge.”

Much like this traumatized side-stepper, we’re still recovering from last night’s Emmys. Maybe it’ll help to work through this thing together:

- First let’s rank the night’s biggest upsets, from crazy to crazier

- Next, let’s go inside the night’s biggest parties and watch Anna Gunn almost get caught in sprinkler crossfire

- Then it’s onto reliving the best part of any Emmys telecast: the Outstanding Writing for a Variety Series bits

- Finally, a timely video: Heisenberg reacts to losing Best Actor to Jeff Daniels

Wait, did we say “finally”? Because that’s just the tip of our Emmys coverage iceberg.

Last night, Stephen Colbert launched a full week of episodes dedicated to dissecting Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey — complete with a set elaborately decorated to look like The Shire, where Middle-earth’s most fuzzy-footed creatures make their home.

The fake pundit — and real Tolkien superfan — welcomed as his first guest Sir Ian McKellen, a celebrated actor who’s best known in geek circles for playing Magneto in the X-Men movies and Gandalf in Jackson’s Tolkien adaptations.

Press play to see a new Hobbit clip, talk of “Gandalf the Gay,” and McKellen’s assessment of who would win in a fight between Magneto and the White Wizard. In short: Can every week be Hobbit Week?

Nerdgasm alert: In honor of the Dec. 14 release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Colbert Report will present four nights of Hobbit-themed programming from Dec. 3 to Dec. 6.

Guests will include stars Ian McKellan (Dec. 3), Martin Freeman (Dec. 4) and Andy Serkis (Dec. 6), along with director Peter Jackson (Dec. 5).

Said Colbert in a statement: “Elen sila lumennomentielvo… I mean that sincerely.” Translation: “A star shines upon the hour of our meeting.”

Fallon might be the only TV show taping in New York today — Hurricane Sandy has already shut down production on Jimmy Kimmel’s first Brooklyn show, as well as both The Daily Show and The Colbert Report.

Guess who’s coming to The Office?

That’s right: Stephen Colbert will guest this season. Too bad Steve Carell won’t be around for an Even Stevphen rematch.

(Oh, you want to know who Colbert is playing? Well…)

We fully support Stephen Colbert’s inclusion on the Maxim Hot 100 list — especially after seeing this clip from last night’s show.

After accusing the Late Night host—and his new best friend!—of riding his coattails, Stephen Colbert declares pre-Emmy war on Jimmy Fallon. Whose side are you on?

Last night, Stephen Colbert let us in on a little secret: Everyone who works at Viacom — the company behind networks including Comedy Central and CBS — has to share a single bathroom, which is located on the set of The Colbert Report. (The arrangement’s particularly tough on Craig Ferguson, Stephen told us — “He has to fly in from L.A.”)

I am as giddy as a schoolgirl who just shot bin Laden in the eye. In the eye. Ka-boom! Hey, Osama, no 3-D movies for you in hell, which I’m pretty sure would be The Last Airbender.

Colbert’s giddy reaction to Osama bin Laden’s death. He added, “Wow. I am just so happy. And I hope, I hope, I am never again this happy over someone’s death. And I know if I saw myself in a mirror, I would be appalled by the look on my face. [Looks into mirror.] Nope. I like this. That’s a good look. I want to stay this way forever.”
