Colbert Show Suspended Temporarily
Tim Mak has published a new story at Politico.com:
Colbert show suspended temporarily – Comedy Central official would not comment on the specific reasons for the suspension.
The late-night comedy program hosted by Stephen Colbert has suspended production for at least two days this week, possibly due to an illness in his family.
The Colbert Report, the home of relentless parodying of super PACs and the campaign finance system, will not air original episodes on Wednesday or Thursday.
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, the show will air repeat episodes on Wednesday, February 15 and Thursday, February 16,” Comedy Central Senior VP for Communications Steve Albani told POLITICO.
Albani would not comment on the specific reasons for the suspension, saying Comedy Central was “not providing any additional details at this time.”
It is expected that the suspension of original production will not be indefinite, and that the show will return soon.
