‘Colbert Report' Tapings Suspended


Comedy Central suspended production of The Colbert Report on Wednesday and will again on Thursday due to "unforeseen circumstances," the network said in a statement Thursday morning.

"Due to unforeseen circumstances, the show will air repeat episodes on Wednesday, February 15 and Thursday, February 16," said a Comedy Central spokesperson, who did not comment on the reason for the suspension.

Audience members who were scheduled to attend the taping of Stephen Colbert's show on Wednesday were sent a notice that it had been canceled, according to messages posted online. The network aired a repeat episode of The Colbert Report instead.

The Colbert Report does not tape on Fridays.
