Tolkien superfan Stephen Colbert will do an entire Hobbit-themed week of shows

To celebrate the release of The Hobbit, Stephen Colbert will have a full week of Hobbit shows on The Colbert Report starting this coming Monday, December 3 on Comedy Central. A die-hard fan of J.R.R.

Like swords or a free elf!
