Why Did Stephen Colbert Suspend Production Of ‘The Colbert Report’? His Mom Is Sick, Says New Report

The mystery as to why The Colbert Report abruptly canceled the Wednesday and Thursday tapings of the show has been revealed: Host Stephen Colbert’s mom is ill.

According to The New York Post, Colbert is with his 91-year-old mother in South Carolina. Yesterday Comedy Central said the cancellations were due to “unforeseen circumstances.”

“They are a very private family,” a source told the Post. “It’s not surprising that he did not want anyone to know what was going on.”
