Colbert Report Suspended



Via Joe.My.God

Twitter is buzzing with curiosity over the abrupt and as yet unexplained suspension of the Stephen Colbert Report by Comedy Central.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the show will air repeat episodes on Wednesday, February 15 and Thursday, February 16,” Comedy Central Senior VP for Communications Steve Albani told POLITICO. Albani would not comment on the specific reasons for the suspension, saying Comedy Central was “not providing any additional details at this time.” According to Third Beat Magazine, which covers comedy, the Colbert Report’s audience received a notification email announcing the cancellation of live taping.

Seems like if this was a health issue, they'd say so.

Apparently, Colbert's 91-year-old mother is seriously ill and may be dying.
