Colbert Report: Returning With New Episodes Tonight

by at . Comments

Stephen Colbert's The Colbert Report will resume taping today after a three-day hiatus prompted by the poor health of the mother of the Comedy Central host.

The political satirist canceled two shows last week without explanation to travel to Charleston, South Carolina, when he heard his 91-year-old mom, Lorna, was sick.

Looks like the Super PAC is back in effect as of this evening, though.

Comedy Central announced on Sunday afternoon that taping will resume on Monday, and new episodes of The Colbert Report are expected to air all week.

The dedicated family man, one of 11 children, who lost his dad and two brothers in a plane crash in 1974, responded to his fans' recent support on Twitter.

"My family and I would like to thank everyone who has offered their thoughts and prayers. We are grateful and touched by your concern," he wrote.
