Worst case sceanario: The Colbert Report bombs, and Stephen returns to TDS.
Best case: TDS hires itself another brilliant correspondant, and continues to rock, while Colbert kicks 11:30’s ass.
I don’t see how we can lose here.
Favorite Colbert moment was probably an unscripted one. Al Sharpton was the guest, but apparently he cancelled at the last moment, so instead Jon interviewed Colbert as Sharpton. The funniest thing is that Colbert played it entirely straight. He didn’t really poke fun at Sharpton, ro even really do an impression, he just answered Jon’s questions. The sheer absurdity of the interview just about killed me.
I also miss Steve Carell, but Carell’s popping up all over the place now. He was teh best part of Anchorman, and is doing a pretty good job on the US The Office. I hope he drops by the Colbert Report to do another Even Steph(v)ens. Those always rocked so hard.
