Taping of “The Colbert Report” was suspended on Wednesday evening and would be again on Thursday because of “unforeseen circumstances,” according to The New York Times and other media outlets. Comedy Central did not provide any further details about what led to the cancellations.
The Times reported that Steve Albani, a spokesman for Comedy Central, sent the following e-mail: “Due to unforeseen circumstances, the show will air repeat episodes on Wednesday, February 15 and Thursday, February 16.” The show does not usually tape on Fridays.
