The Colbert Report has been canceled for at least the rest of this week due to an emergency in Stephen Colbert's family, according to a source connected to the show.

Comedy Central sent last minute emails to ticketholders of Wednesday and Thursday tapings of the show, saying production has been halted "due to unforeseen circumstances."

The network issued a statement stating simply that "due to unforeseen circumstances, the show will air repeat episodes on Wednesday, February 15 and Thursday, February 16."

Colbert and the network have remained mum on the reason behind the cancellations.
