The Colbert Report
February 17, 2012 by staff
The Colbert Report, “The Colbert Report” has been temporarily suspended due to the host’s mother, Lorna Colbert, 91, falling ill, sources close to the show say.
Since news broke early yesterday morning that new episodes of “The Colbert Report” had been abruptly put on hold due to “unforeseen circumstances,” speculation as to the reason has ranged far and wide. Many fans suspected a family illness, while others speculated that the host had been fired or that he was engaging in some kind of bizarre PR stunt.
While “The Daily Show” has previously cancelled shows at the last minute — once for the birth of Jon Stewart’s second child and once after the death of a staffer — this is the first time “The Colbert Report” has done so.
On Thursday, a person who has a business relationship with the network told The Huffington Post that the host’s mother was seriously ill, and on Friday, The New York Post cited an additional source who confirmed the illness.
According to that source, the network has remained tight-lipped over the situation because the Colberts are “a very private family.”
