The Stephen Colbert Mystery: Is He Dead??

For the first time ever, taping of the Colbert Report (starring Stephen Colbert, of course) has been cancelled with no clear reason given (Colbert had a previously spotless attendance record).  Speculation was running rampant at the end of this week and into the beginning of the weekend concerning the nature of the perceived emergency.  Is Stephen dead?  Is the show cancelled?  Apparently, the Colberts are a very private family and haven’t released any details on what might be delaying the production, but the rumor mill has settled on the fact that the former Daily Show comic’s 91 year old mother is very ill and he’s rushed to be by her side in what could be her final days.  Let’s hope that’s not the case.
