The Colbert Report Production Halted for Unknown Reasons

Stephen ColbertHere's a bit of strange news for you: satirical news series The Colbert Report has been suspended by network Comedy Central for unknown reasons. A repeat episode of the series aired on Wednesday night, and the network announced that it would do the same on Thursday. The suspension is due to "unforeseen circumstances," which sounds just a little bit ominous. 

Nothing was mentioned of this suspension on Wednesday night's episode of The Daily Show with John Stewart, but it seems likely that fans of both shows will be tuning in tonight to see if Stewart will give any indication of exactly what's up with Stephen. 

The result of this two-episode suspension of the show was heard around the blogosphere, with many sites curious as to the reason for this enigmatic disappearance. 

Colbert recently toured in support of failed presidential candidate Herman Cain, traveling to South Carolina before the state's Republican primary and throwing a mock rally in support of Cain. "I want you to vote for Herman Cain," Colbert told the crowd, "Because Herman Cain is me." 

Colbert has also recently been pointing out the flaws of the PAC system with his own SuperPAC, "Americans for a Better Tomorrow, Tomorrow." That PAC has raised more than $1 million. 

The status of next week's Colbert Report is still up in the air, but it is assumed that there will be an announcement this weekend if any further delays are necessary. We'll keep you posted on any further developments in this mysterious story.

If it's because of the superpac, then getting him off the air will just fuel the fire that is Colbert.
