Stephen Colbert Promises That the Remaining ‘Colbert Report’ Episodes Will Be ‘Instant Classics’


During last night’s Colbert Report, Stephen took a few moments to reflect on the show’s future with only 32 episodes left to go – the same number of episodes Comedy Central ordered back in 2005 as an eight-week tryout – and gave the audience a personal guarantee that the remaining episodes will each be “instant classics treasured by generations for their deep poetic thoughts, heavy-handed symbolism, and massive foreshadowing.” This led to an ominous cameo by Death, but Colbert clearly isn’t getting the message.
