Colbert Report: Suspended For Unknown Reasons

by at . Comments

The Colbert Report, the late-night fake news Comedy Central program hosted by Stephen Colbert, has suspended production for at least two days this week.

The recent home of relentless parodying of super PACs and the campaign finance system didn't air a new episode last night and tonight will be a repeat as well.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the show will air repeat episodes on both Wednesday, February 15 and Thursday, February 16,” Comedy Central said.

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, Colbert’s audience received a notification email announcing the cancellation of live taping.

“Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have canceled our taping for the date of your ticket reservation, February 15, 2012,” the email read.

It is expected that the suspension of production will not be indefinite, and that the show should return soon, but no further information is available.

Colbert’s super PAC, meanwhile, has over $800,000 on hand after raising $219,000 last month, almost entirely from small donors, heading into Super Tuesday.

hy would they honor her after all Republicans honor the one President who addicted a whole generation in the Ghettos and poor area to finance the Iran Contra Disgrace---Also he will be remembered by amny us for committing treason when he paid for keeping the hostages until the end of the election and paying out $13 in military equipment---those who will not honor Whitney are almost as big of hypocrites than of those who still honor Reagan.

That's what happens when you put a condom on a banana on t.v. then chop it off!!!!. With that being said,its cable,I pay for it,and if conservatives don't like it,you have the delete option either on your t.v. or through your cable provider!!!!!!!!!.

He did give a dollar figure for how much taxpayer money goes to church charities. Sure they don't want that to go around.
