Articles for The Colbert Report Season 4

It has been a long nine weeks!  The Daily Show and The Colbert Report last ran new episodes on November 1 and the fans have been slowly dying ever since.  Due to the excessive reruns, both shows have lost more than 50% of their audiences but tonight, those numbers will change.  It will be interesting to see how both Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will handle returning to tv.  We still expect political, smart humor and it‘s going to be a challenge considering neither one of them can write a single word.  They‘ll have to improv the whole thing, which may work for Conan or Dave but will it work well for the Comedy Central duo?  Here‘s how each show played out as The Daily Show and The Colbert Report return with new episodes. Read more »
Republican presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has been on The Colbert Report a few times over the past year, and during his appearance on Wednesday‘s show he jokingly asked Stephen Colbert to be his running mate in the upcoming election.  Colbert, who abandoned his own 2008 presidential bid back in November, responded with an enthusiastic, "Yes, a thousand times yes."  Is it time for the citizens of America to get ready for the Huckabee/Colbert campaign?  And will noted Huckabee Supporter/King of the Internet Chuck Norris be the Secretary of Defense? Read more »
Now that the writers‘ strike is over, we can look to the future. Hopefully viewers will stick around for new episodes of 30 Rock and The Office as opposed to NBC‘s current strategy of four or five hours of Deal or No Deal per week. But let‘s try to focus on the positives, and yes, there were some good things that came out of the strike, and we‘re not talking about Internet residuals.We‘re not about to claim the strike was a great thing, or even a good thing. We at BuddyTV miss the adventures of Ned the Piemaker and Lonely Tourist Charlotte Charles. We wonder what made Tony Almeida so evil. And we‘re still curious about when Marshall‘s final two slaps will occur. Yet we can look beyond that to find the silver lining on the giant cloud that was the writers‘ strike. Read more »
It‘s been almost five months since “I Am America (And So Can You!),” a book written by The Colbert Report host Stephen Colbert and writers from the show, was released, but the satirical piece is still going strong in the New York Times Best-Seller List. In the recent list released by the New York Times, the book takes the number 6 spot in the top ten for hardcover nonfiction, ahead of such other popular releases as "An Inconvenient Book" by Glenn Beck and Kevin Balfe, "Real Change" by Newt Gingrich with Vince Haley and Rick Tyler, "God‘s Problem" by Bart D. Ehrman and "Manic" by Terri Cheney. Read more »
Tonight‘s episode of The Colbert Report should prove to have another memorable interview for viewers, as journalist, attorney and human rights advocate Geraldo Rivera is scheduled to come on as a guest. Rivera, who at times has appeared on The O‘Reilly Factor hosted political pundit Bill O‘Reilly, is out to promote his latest literary project, His Panic: Why Americans Fear Hispanics in the U.S.The interview should be interesting not only because Rivera was sometimes the subject of mockery in The Colbert Report‘s parent series, The Daily Show, but also because Rivera has made some insulting remarks about comedians Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert in an equally public setting. Read more »
Every day, we here at BuddyTV will let you know all the new shows airing that night to help you plan your TV-viewing schedule. In addition, we’ll highlight two episodes we think are worth checking out to help diversify your love of TV.Wednesdays are slim pickings for quality TV, unless you fall for FOX’s promos that say Til Death and Back to You are two of TV’s funniest comedies (a claim that makes me want to sue the network for false advertising). And while ABC is dedicating two hours to yet another debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, I have an alternate suggestion for your political news, which brings us to tonight’s word… Read more »
