Last week, Stephen Colbert put his show, The Colbert Report, on hiatus for mysterious reasons. Afterward, we learned that his 91-year-old mother Lorna was sick, so he flew to Charleston, South Carolina to be by her side.
Stephen returned to the helm of his show last night, to discuss the rumors surrounding his absence. He used the opening of the show to talk about all of the rumors.
Firstly, he touches on the rumors that the FCC took him off of the air by request of the FEC because he was about to announce his candidacy for the presidential election. Next, he says he was canceled by the Catholic church for comparing the Pope’s hat to a “giant, yet stylish prophylactic.”
Others said that he was in rehab, which he calls “an attractive option” — if they have that for Diet Coke. He even talked about the funny rumors started by Joan Rivers that he was off of the show to get plastic surgery.
Watch the video:
She joked that Stephen got a nose job and then said that he would have “new eyes”. In response, he said, “Wrong, Joan. I did not have my eyes done…that’s ridiculous. I had my ass done. The doctors cranked this thing so high and tight it can barely blink now.”
Afterward, he paid tribute to his mother, by saying that “having eleven children makes you as tough as nails.”
We’re glad to hear that his mother is doing better — and so much for the rumor mill!
Last week, political satirist Stephen Colbert abruptly suspended the taping of his show, The Colbert Report. It was a mystery when the show went into re-runs without explanation.
Stephen traveled to Charleston, South Carolina, to be with his 91-year-old mother, Lorna. She was sick, so Stephen rushed to be by her side. Stephen has already lost his father and two brothers in a plane crash in 1974, so you can imagine that his mother’s health is of the utmost importance to him/.
Fans of the talk show funny man expressed their best wishes to Stephen while the show was in a brief hiatus. To that, he took to his official Twitter account to say, “My family and I would like to thank everyone who has offered their thoughts and prayers. We are grateful and touched by your concern.”
Comedy Central has announced that taping will resume today, barring any unforeseen circumstances. We’re glad to see Stephen returning to television so quickly. Even more importantly, we are glad to hear that his mother is okay.
Were you sad to see the show go into re-runs without explanation? We’re hoping that things continue to go well for Lorna.

At last night’s Grammy Awards, Stephen Colbert opened the show by razzing just about everybody in attendance, and even one who wasn’t there, Susan Boyle.
He started off by saying, “We are here tonight to celebrate what I believe is our most precious right, the right of celebrities to congratulate each other.”
Then, after trying to be “cool” for his daughter, he hit out at Susan Boyle. He said, “Congratulations to all of you, but what I want to know is — Why isn’t Susan Boyle here? I mean, she accomplished something huge this year. You all may have brought the sexy back, but she sent it away again! No thanks Sexy, we’re just going with good singing this year.”
He added, “Seriously, you may be cool here but this year your industry was saved by a 48 year old Scottish cat lady in sensible shoes. So, give it up for Susan Boyle! congratulations, Susan!”
