The Colbert Report is off the air and no one knows why, or if they do, they're not saying.

    I believe you mean “off the ‘ert’”

    He probably revealed who’s slated to become president and is now enjoying a reeducation^h^h^h^h^h^h^h^creational programme on Cuba.

      I’m trying really hard not to be the stick-in-the-mud concern troll, but. . .  this is almost certainly something fairly severe; family emergency often means dead or dying relative.  So, in context, what I imagine you meant as a casually flippant remark sounds pretty dickish.

    You really ought to put him in a red and white stripped sweater if you want me to have any chance of spotting him.

    The Daily Show did the same thing when Stewart’s son was born, and again when a staff member died, so I think it’s reasonably safe to assume that it’s something of that caliber.

    Here’s hoping the best for the crew and their families.

    …John Titor?

    I was wondering about that.  I don’t always stay tuned in after The Daily Show (not because I don’t love Colbert, but because I need what little sleep I can get), but I was mildly interested to see what Claire Danes was up to these days.  And that was odd too, because normally I couldn’t care less, but last night I thought I’d give a glance.  And I watched about a minute and a half, wondering why the material seemed overly familiar.  Wait, didn’t Florida already have their primary?  And why was Colbert making it look like a Gingrich/Romney shootout with no mention of The Frothman?  And then I realized it was an unscheduled repeat, and I briefly wondered why.

    I do hope things are okay.  In a purely selfish sense, we really need Colbert.

    i’m officially concerned. best wishes to him and his family, just in case.

  13. wendyjoy says:

    His elderly mother is sick.

  14. voiceinthedistance says:

    I heard the wasps got him.  The damn wasps.

  15. lm23 says:

    He has a tragic family history, I hope this isn’t more shitty luck.

    Just found this on the Huff:
    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/02/17/stephen-colbert-mother-lorna-ill_n_1284415.html

    “Sources close to the show, however, have stated that Colbert’s mother is seriously ill. Colbert is the youngest of eleven children.

    Colbert’s sudden departure may last for some time. The show will resume taping as soon as Stephen is able to. His mother is 91 years old. His mother is the last of his parents alive. In 1974, an airplane accident killed his father, James, and his brothers Peter and Paul. Colbert was ten at the time.”
