Because it's hard to fit a Great Wyrm on stage, yo.
There is no question that Stephen Colbert is a J.R.R. Tolkien superfan. After all, it's the reason Peter Jackson gave Colbert a cameo in The Desolation of Smaug. And he's bidding farewell to Jackson's Hobbit films by dressing up as the characters.
Stephen Colbert has something to say to all of the scruffy-looking nerfherders who insist that the crossguard lightsaber in the Star Wars: The Force Awakens trailer is impractical: he's been a Star Wars fan a whole two weeks longer than the rest of us and he's using his knowledge to school us on lightsaber design.

A few weeks back Peter Jackson participated in a live cast before the preview of the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug footage. And he was joined by some old LOTR friends and super nerd Stephen Colbert, who gleefully grilled Jackson on his elf knowledge. Thankfully Jackson had a pretty solid response.
There's no way hardcore Tolkien fanboy Stephen Colbert was going to let the upcoming premiere of The Hobbit go without notice, but I think this goes a touch beyond just "noticing" it. All four episodes of next week's Colbert Report will be Hobbit-themed, including guests Ian McKellan, Martin Freeman, director Peter…
Stephen Colbert is an enormous fan of J.R.R. Tolkien's works. Just look at his explanation of American politics using Lord of the Rings action figures or his challenging James Franco to a Tolkien debate. Colbert even owns Aragorn's sword, Anduril.
