The Colbert Report temporarily suspended

Cali Owings

The Colbert Report unexpectedly suspended production this week due to unforeseen circumstances. No additional details can be provided at this time, Steve Albani, Comedy Central's senior vice president of communications, told Politico.

Ticket holders for the tapings of Wednesday and Thursday's shows were informed by email of the suspension. Comedy Central is scheduled to play reruns of the show in place of original episodes. The suspension is not expected to be indefinite, and tapings should resume soon.
