It’s been tough for Jon Stewart to figure out how to spend Stephen Colbert’s SuperPAC money, and last night, he had Colbert on “The Daily Show” to get some guidance. Only one problem: Colbert, as the potential candidate the SuperPAC supports, can’t “coordinate” directly with anyone from the SuperPAC.

In an oftentimes awkward, meandering interview on Sunday, Colbert told ABC’s “This Week” that he established […]
“Indecision 2012” officially arrived this week as Tuesday’s Iowa Caucus kicked off the presidential campaign year and Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” and Stephen Colbert’s “Colbert Report” swooped in to make mincemeat of the whole thing. Titled “The Corn Identity” (and really, “The Daily Show” is brilliant at this kind of packaging), Stewart’s coverage Wednesday night […]
Here are the people who made us laugh the hardest in 2011, led by a man who loves to make canoes (in real life) and whose character has an unnatural love of breakfast foods.

Now that Herman Cain is no longer running for president, Jon Stewart and the writers of “The Daily Show” were looking for someone to step up and supply the obvious comedic fodder that is their lifeforce. Luckily, the ever-reliable Donald Trump is always available to feed the comedy machine. And after he announced that he […]
Add Stephen Colbert to the growing list of anti-Cooperites. On last night’s “Report,” Colbert blasted People magazine for its choice of Bradley Cooper as this year’s “Sexiest Man Alive.” Of course, Colbert isn’t alone. After People announced their pick this week, incensed Ryan Gosling fans took to the internet to voice their outrage, and even […]
File this under “things you’ll only see on ‘The Colbert Report.’” In honor of R.E.M.’s recent break-up, Stephen Colbert concluded last night’s “Report” by placing the band’s frontman, Michael Stipe, on his memorabilia bookshelf. The two, joined by previous guest Brian Eno, then closed out the show with an improbably excellent a capella performance of […]
Could Stephen Colbert have a shot at hosting “Saturday Night Live“? Not if you take his interview with Seth Meyers on last night’s “Report” as an audition. After several minutes of affectionately “hammering” the Weekend Update host-SNL headwriter about the goings-on at the sketch show, Colbert coyly remarked that he Meyers don’t run in the […]
