Stephen Colbert Returns After Hiatus for Some More Politician Bashing

Comedy Central

Stephen Colbert is back! Last week, on February 15th and 16th, fans of ‘The Colbert Report’ were surprised and concerned by an abrupt suspension of new episodes due to a “family emergency.” However, the master of news satire will be picking up where the he left off on Monday night with special guest Parnassus Books owner Ann Patchett.

When The Wall Street Journal reported the show’s hiatus, many assumed that Colbert’s 91-year-old mother, Lorena, was going through some health-related issues. Even without definitive confirmation, the Colbert nation came together, offering its thoughts and prayers to the beloved leader and his family.

The Colbert family is reportedly a very private and close-knit group, but in response to his fan’s overwhelming show of support, Stephen did have this to say on his Twitter page:


Hopefully, this will be the only unplanned Colbert hiatus that we’ll have to endure. We certainly commend him, though, for making family his number one priority and we wish him and his loved ones the best during this tumultuous time.

Special guests for this week include Author Robert Kagen on Tuesday, former Speaker of the House Nanci Pelosi on Wednesday, and opera star Placido Domingo on Thursday.
