"It's not going to be good for you, but I think it would be good for the country.' And I'm like, 'Get out of here!'" Winfrey recalled.
Coincidentally enough, a projection purportedly of God appeared on the roof of the Ed Sullivan Theater, where the Late Show is filmed. God retorted. Winfrey still couldn't be moved, but she did leave viewers (and God) with a positive message. "God, I don't mean to hurry you along, but is there something you'd like to tell Oprah?".
Colbert announced the appearance Tuesday night.

"I'm sorry about this, Oprah".
"God stops by every once in awhile, he's a fan", Colbert said. "God" asked while holding up a sign that read "Run!" "Is there something you'd like to tell Oprah?".
Winfrey laughed and said, "Run is now a part of my exercise routine, I can tell you that". "A big endorsement", Colbert pointed out. "It's not something I've ever seen myself doing. It's not the kind of job that you can have without fully devoting yourself to it 100 percent", she said.
The interview was then interrupted by a projected hologram of "God" wearing robes and long white hair on the ceiling of the studio, who greeted the audience with a "What's up?" "Everything is gonna be okay and I'm sure you are going to find someone that you are just inspired by in 2020".
