Thanks to The Colbert Report for the hot post idea.
Stephen Colbert and his writers pulled the curtain back on their Emmy-winning show during a panel at the New York Comedy Festival Thursday night. One question involved why there were so many white dudes on staff, while another centered on Wheat Thins.
So many out-of-left-field wins this year — both exciting and not-that-exciting! Host Neil Patrick Harris put it best: “This just in: No one in America is winning their office Emmy pool.” #weirdemmys
Anne-Marie Slaughter, who wrote The Atlantic’s widely-read cover story about how women “can’t have it all” visited The Colbert Report the other night. At the end of the segment Colbert opens the magazine to a photo of Slaughter with her two sons, proclaiming: “Neither of them look like they want to be in the picture. That means you’ve raised two normal boys.”
On last night’s Colbert Report, the pair battled it out to see who can act HARDER than the other. You decide who wins.
Definitely the cutest television engagement you’ll see all day.
“Evidently, having 11 children makes you tough as nails.” Stephen Colbert returned to his program tonight after a surprise two-day absence last week, reportedly prompted by the ailing health of his 91-year-old mother, Lorna. And he did it in true Colbert style.
This was brilliant. Stephen Colbert surprised Jon Stewart at the end of tonight’s “Daily Show” to demand back the Super PAC he gave Stewart control over while mulling a fake presidential bid. Stewart’s refusal to honor Colbert’s request led to an epic foot chase, culminating in… you know what? Just watch.
Old people using inhalants seems to be a thing this week! Here’s the conclusion of Stephen Colbert’s highly entertaining interview with “Where The Wild Things Are” author Maurice Sendak, during which the curmudgeonly legend reviews Colbert’s new children’s book, “I Am A Pole (And So Can You),” before teaching him how to illustrate… while high on markers.
Who knew the children’s book author was so hilariously crotchety? Stephen and Maurice talk “Where The Wild Things Are,” why his book featuring a naked boy was banned (hint: all of the penises!), and the true definition of “wild rumpus.”
“Get your names right, Bill!” Stephen Colbert opened tonight’s “Colbert Report” with a segment about the easy to get around “non-coordination” rules applying to Super PACs. Specifically, Colbert hit back at BuzzFeed — and editor-in-chief Ben Smith — for questioning the legality of his coordination with Jon Stewart, who took over the Super PAC Colbert created once he announced his possible run for “President of the United States of South Carolina.” Me-ow!
Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are making a complete mockery of U.S. election law by stretching the limits of what can be considered “non-coordination” between presidential candidates and the Super PACs that back them. They’re also making history.
This just keeps getting better. Three days after announcing the formation of a presidential exploratory committee following a transfer of control over his Super PAC to Jon Stewart—and mere hours after that same Super PAC released a Mitt Romney attack ad set to air this week in South Carolina—Stephen Colbert fielded questions about it all from George Stephanopoulos Sunday morning during an at-times contentious appearance on ABC’s “This Week.” And it was awesome.
Just like the Iowa caucuses themselves, cable news networks covering the results on Tuesday weren’t free of technical difficulties. Stephen Colbert exploited these flubs, from Brett Baier and Megyn Kelly’s remedial math failures on Fox News to Erin Burnett’s inability to use CNN’s new “flicking wall,” on tonight’s “Report.”
On The Colbert Report, Stephen decided he wanted “in” on this Occupy Wall Street action. And so he took the limo down to Zuccotti Park dressed as Che Guevera, so he could blend in.
Promoting his new self-titled album, Bon Iver performed on The Colbert Report on Monday night. Sounds like the three-year wait was worth it. Watch Video ›
If you look carefully, you can spot a small, framed photograph of Hugh Laurie on the set of The Colbert Report. House has reciprocated the gesture with a photo of Colbert that sits on Dr. Gregory House’s desk. View Image ›
Symptoms may include Mika Brzezinski yelling, “when will this b*tch shut the f*ck up for 10 minutes!?” The Colbert Report explains the Sarah Palin reaction, to the media’s reaction, to her reaction, to the media’s criticism of her rhetoric in the wake of the Tucson shootings.

Good news for both Clinton and Obama: The Colbert Bump is real, if you’re a democrat. A political scientist has taken a hard look at the evidence, and it looks like appearing on The Colbert Report is good for Democrats, bad for Republicans. We don’t understand the physics involved, but he’s got a graph and everything, so science wins again. Read More ›
