Kicking the thread for an update: CSPAN is airing the Colbert-enhanced Correspondents' Dinner footage tonight at 9:30 EDT, with a rerun at 5:30 a.m.

I absolutely loved Colbert's "Press Secretary" video on Tuesday night. He was being chased by Helen Thomas of the White House Press Corps and it made for some hilarious TV.
post #206 of 593
As I'd seen it during his Correspondence Dinner speech, and it went on too long the first time, I tuned out until it was over.

The Difference Makers segment was one of the most hilarious/depressing things I've seen in a good while. I just don't get why (southern white) people are so upset by the fact that the national anthem was translated into Spanish. The ideas and values that the anthem stands for are universal and understood no matter what language it's spoken in.

Any chance anyone has that picture of the bear shooting Ferdinand?

"Balrogs are Maiar who rejected Eru and followed Morgoth into Thangorodrim!"

I'm so ashamed that I know what he's talking about.

Suddenly, and without warning, it turned into a real life game, of hungry hungry hippos.
post #211 of 593
And a Snakes on a Plane reference. Joy.

I was actually kind of proud.

For those of you who didn't see the nailing Steve gave to congressman Lynn Westmoreland.

Westmoreland gets nailed.
post #214 of 593
My friends and former coworkers have been reccomending this show forever and I finally took in most of everything Youtube has to offer, gotta agree that the man is dynamite. His threatdowns are superb as are his rants on why monkeys should not give bears a taste for mammal bood because they are godless killing machines.

I'll be catching this regularly from now on.
post #215 of 593
That interview with Chris Matthews was beyond bizarre. Darrell Hammond's caricature of him on SNL now looks restrained and flattering in comparison.
post #216 of 593
I'm looking forward to tomorrow's episode. The guest is Amy Sedaris and it would be wonderful if she was Charlene.
post #217 of 593
Anyone catch Amy Sedaris on the show last night? I'd be interested in knowing whether the tumbling was as funny as I thought it was, or if I was just punchy at that hour. I am actually enjoying Colbert more than the Daily Show.

You weren't just punchy, it was fucking hilarious.

CR surpassed TDS long ago for me.
post #221 of 593
I love both shows, but Colbert seems to have more truly laugh-out-loud moments for me. The whole Sedaris interview was fuckin' great.
post #222 of 593
Finally caught a new episode of it, and I never get tired of him referencing his on air slam against asians.

"......That's a little hot."

post #224 of 593
Wow, I finally saw that Jeff Daniels bit, that was brutal. It's interesting to watch these early ones cause it looks like some guests have no clue what the show is supposed to be.
post #225 of 593
It's interesting that his guests have leaned more towards entertainers and esoteric folks rather than political figures since they came back from the break. I think that works better, frankly.

Colbert's funnier, but TDS still provides the more vital service of untangling the bullshit.
post #226 of 593
Did anybody see his interview with Joe Scarborough on July 19th? That had to be one of the most amusing interviews I'd ever seen him do; particularly, everything after Scarborough admitted to taking money from Abramhoff was hilarious.
post #227 of 593
I just love how pleased Colbert seemed for asking a semi-serious question (did Scabarough take any money from Abramoff). Him breaking out of character to give himself a pat on the back had me in fucking stitches.
post #228 of 593
I'd love it if anyone had the George W./Condy Rice picture mirroring Stephen and his black friend stashed somewhere online. Hilarious stuff.
post #229 of 593
Yeah, that Scarborough interview was insane in a good way. Kind of interesting how he was friendly until Colbert accused him of taking Abramoff's money, and then he suddenly started picking a fight with the audience, and Colbert seemed to think that was hilarious.

Bill Donahue was on. What a psycho.

Congressman Wexler last week:
"I like to do cocaine because it's a fun thing to do."

My jaw dropped when he said that. What other show is there where you can see a US Congressman say that on national television?

Here's a big 'ol slab of truth for you, served cold and hard: Truth
post #233 of 593
I can't believe the morning shows were dishonest enough to try to "bring down" Wexler by quoting him out of context like that. Stephen was obviously genuinely pissed that they were ragging on the guy for being nice enough to play along.

I kept expecting Donohue to announce that we were all in danger of being Dildoed by Lesbionics.

What sucks even worse is that this will probably be the death of "Better Know a District" as no one will want to talk to Stephen any more.
post #236 of 593
Joe Quesada on the Colbert Report tonight, should be fun, specially with the "Civil War" stuff ...
post #237 of 593
Stephen's Better-Know-A-District of D.C.'s interview was absolutely brilliant. Funniest thing I've seen in awhile.
post #238 of 593
That district segment was just awesome, Colbert refering to himself as french vanilla and using fillet as a example of non french silencing the t.

and I absolutely love the lead ins to the show
post #239 of 593
Video of that particular "Better Know a District Segment" here:

Sneaking out just prior to WizardWorld: Chicago…apparently, the deal, as they say is a done one.

From Oni Press:

Oni to publish Stephen Colbert’s TEK JANSEN & ALPHA SQUAD 7 comics!

Filed under: Buzz Bin, Oni in the News — Randal C. Jarrell @ 10:42 am

That’s right folks.

Oni Press, in cooperation with The Colbert Report and Comedy Central will be publishing a series of comics based off of the unpublished sci-fi masterpiece Stephen Colbert’s Alpha Squad 7: Lady Nocturne: A Tek Jansen Adventure. The manuscript is currently on permanent loan to the Smithsonian Institute where it is being preserved for future generations.

Everybody here at Oni is happy to be doing our patriotic duty by bringing this work to a larger audience.

Stay tuned for more news!

Great episode coming back from the Emmy loss, Colbert's solace in calling Manilow was fantastic, as was Short.

There was a headline about riots in Hungary. For a few seconds, I expected to read a story about Hungarians rioting because Stephen Colbert won the internet vote for the naming of that bridge they're building.

Turns out those pesky Hungarians were rioting because the government lied about the economy.
post #250 of 593
Caught a weak-ass, definitely sub-par interview with Toby Kieth on youtube. Kept waiting for Colbert to sock it to him; just didn't happen.
