The Colbert Report is off the air for a few days. News is scarce, but apparently there is a serious illness in his family, possibly Colbert’s mother. Colbert also tweeted his thanks for everyone’s thoughts and prayers.
Rumors that Colbert’s show got yanked because he pissed off too many Republican power brokers are false. Nothing to see here.
From what he said his first night back I was under the impression that his wife gave birth.
