If you tuned in last night to see Claire Danes on The Colbert Report you might have been as surprised as we were to see it was a rerun of the episode that featured Bjork. Well, it turns out production was on the show yesterday and will be once again tonight, due to what Comedy Central reports as “unforeseen circumstances.” The show normally goes dark on Fridays so this means no more new episodes for the rest of the week.
It’s a sudden and unexplained announcement that set off the rumor mill with speculation. However the reality is that something personal is probably happening with Colbert himself rather than something network related. Since Colbert is on camera during the entire show, and the only person they couldn’t film a show with, chances are he is the origin of the work stoppage. Which hasn’t been suspended in the 7 years its been on the air.
In the meantime, you can let your own speculation theories fly but hopefully all will be well again come next week.
