Colbert Gets Daily Show Spinoff!

Image Hosted by

Stephen Colbert, one of the brilliant comedians from The Daily Show is getting his own spin off show!
(thanks, hubby, for the tip!)

Stephen Colbert, who plays a phony correspondent on the fake-news program "The Daily Show," is getting a real promotion. Comedy Central said yesterday that it was giving Mr. Colbert his own show: a half-hour that is expected to follow "The Daily Show" on weeknights and will lampoon those cable-news shows that are dominated by the personality and sensibility of a single host. Think, he said, of Bill O'Reilly and Chris Matthews and Sean Hannity.

Where "The Daily Show" and its host, Jon Stewart, generally spoof the headlines of the day (and the anchors and reporters who deliver them), Mr. Colbert's program will send up those hosts who have become household names doing interviews and offering analyses each night on the 24-hour cable news channels. The program, which is expected to begin appearing on Comedy Central as soon as early fall, is being produced by Mr. Stewart's production company, Busboy Productions.

Wheeeeee -- I'm so excited!!!!

I heard a bit of an interview with him about it on Air America. It sounds like it will be very cool! I am anxious to check it out 8^)

Hey Shea - No more Ghandi glasses? Cool new icon though - nice and nerdy, heehee! :)

Note to self...must remember to give a listen to Air America online. (We got Syrius Satellite radio; primarily for hubby to catch his beloved Raiders'football games.)

Thanks - It's my little signature cartoon of myself. It looks a little different every time I draw it, and yet somehow it always looks the same!

Yeah, Air America online - no static! My current fave: Rachel Maddow (since they dropped my beloved Unfiltered)
