Colbert_Report_logo.png

I don't think these shows need any real introduction, given what they are and especially this community. Because of that, I'm not gonna go through all that nonsense of introducing the correspondents or hosts. What I AM gonna do, though, is point out that the shows are back on Hulu! If you're that excited to hear the news for the first time, the above logos are links to the relevant Hulu pages. No longer do you have to endure the horrible Comedy Central web player.

What I AM going to do with this thread from now on is keep track of the guest lists (don't count on this to run 100% of the time) and I may even keep track of the off-air weeks, just to humor myself.

We kinda had a problem in the last thread that I wanna take the chance to clarify now; anything discussed on the shows the night of their airing and up to the next episode is up for discussion here, no problem. When the next episode airs, people who still want to talk about those things should take those topics to their own thread (and often times threads exist for those topics already). Obviously Thursdays have an advantage. Aside from that, any gimmicks, past or present, run on the shows, or correspondents new and old, are free to be discussed here.

Special Announcements:
  • May 4th - Colbert - www.redcross.org - Please visit the website or text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to the relief aid for Mississippi and Alabama, which were devastated by the recent storms. THINK OF THE MUNKUS BEIBERS.
  • April 11th - Colbert - Twitter - John Kyl's explanation behind lying while on record, "Not intended to be a factual statement," has been picked up by Colbert and the Colbert Nation on Twitter as a hashtag, #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement. Look it up if you're ever bored, or add to the mayhem.
  • March - Colbert - www.colbertpac.com - Colbert has started a PAC, which... well, I guess it's just a money-making system pundits are using to back political candidates. So Colbert has called on the Colbert Nation to start a PAC with him. We don't know anything about it yet, aside from 54k people signing up for it as of April 12th. Go to the site and sign up to help out with whatever the hell it is!

    New thread, hooray!

    I'm not a huge fan of Tracy Morgan's appearances, but Ricky Gervais should be good times.

    I don't mind Tracy Morgan but at the same time I don't get excited to see him. Agreed on Ricky Gervais though, that guy is great.

    Also, in case anyone missed it in the last thread, a new Twitter trend has started (or well, it apparently started before Colbert but he made it a thing) to have the hashtag #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement. It's produced such things as:
    Jon Kyl sponsored S.410, which would ban happiness. #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement
    I am the Lindbergh baby. Waaaaaaaaaah #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement
    Jon Kyl was a member of the Manson Family, and married Squeaky Fromme. #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement
    #OMG Now that Planned Parenthood is gone, 90% of abortions will be done at Walgreens! Thanks John Kyl. #NotIntendedToBeAFactualStatement

    Oh yeah, that gives me an idea. If you guys want, and this really goes to people who watch the shows online (I don't), if any fantastic images like that come up in the shows, screenshot them and link 'em up. I'll probably add some to the OP, just so that we can keep them around.

    On that note, if anyone could get a shot of Colbert from his English segments last week where he had crud running out of the corners of his mouth, that would make my year.

    I could have sworn that the Mythbusters did "Reverse Engineering" last season. I know I remember them turning a car around, because it was awesome to watch.

    Interesting shows last night, if only because Kyl is such a mouth-breathing troglodyte that both shows decided to hit him relentlessly. I think Wyatt's "He used a technique known as lying" bit was a great example of what makes TDS's concept entertaining.

    I would have much preferred a surprise performance by Beardzilla over what we heard from the Foo Fighters.

    And that's not to say anything really all that bad about the Foo Fighters. I just have to hear Beardzilla now.

    Try not to do it again with this thread, deo.

    So tonight's guest is the governor of Massachusetts. His Wikipedia page actually has probably the most clear breaking-down of positions he has on issues of any politician's Wiki article that I've seen. Only thing I'll note right now is the guy has said already he isn't going to seek re-election in 2014.

    Adam Savage gave me the impression that he was restraining himself, with difficulty, from geeking out over being the same room as Stephen Colbert.

    Of course, Colbert gave me the same impression with regard to both Savage and Hyneman.

    I wonder if everything that guy was saying about Mass. was true. Because it'd be really nice if it was. Because then more states can start operating like it and maybe turn out great.

    C-SPAN should probably just make up a "Not Intended To Be A Factual Statement" banner and slap it up whenever a R is talking.

    Also, the FCC should require Fox News to display it all the time.

    Just watched the last two Colberts and hot damned is he on fire lately.

    He's enjoying the "not intended to be a factual statement" way too much and it's always a joy to see Colbert really dig into a bit, and I lost it on his Wal-greens colonoscopy right along with him. Just the ridiculousness of it all, really Fox? Papsmears and breast exams at Wal-greens? I cannot wait to see what he does with Colbert PAC

    Ah I needed that with how grim politics has been lately

    They tell you that you are now censured. And that is what happens.

    Take this with a grain of Canadian salt but, 2nd ammendment solution. Do it. It can't be a bad thing if the Founding Fathers thought it was a good idea.
