    I was just watching last night's episode and check out the contributors in this screen shot. I thought they would've been screening for this a little bit more after the Suq Madiq incident. Yes it's juvenile, but it's worth a chuckle.

    Didn't catch that. Which episode was it? What was the Suq Madiq thing? Never heard about it.

    The above screen shot is from Wednesday 9/14, and the names start scrolling across at 57 seconds into the show (based off of Hulu's timer).

    As for the Suq Madiq episode, Colbert did a little comedy sketch of it on the episode that ran August 4, 2011, honoring the Arab American contributor and his family. It was so funny that Colbert couldn't even keep a straight face and I was in tears.

    I can't wait for the next segment when he thanks all these contributors again.

    How did I miss that episode!? Dang! I don't see how he keeps a straight face for so long during his shows.

    He's a total professional man, but you know when he can't keep a straight face the writing is funny.

    When he first started his own show I just couldn't get passed the over-the-topness of it, and didn't like it too much. However, the last few years his writing/delivery has been spot on. I hope he wins the Emmy tomorrow for his category.

    Heh, good for a chuckle. Wonder if any more will sneak through or maybe they even plant them as well. :D

    Thats what I love the most about his show. John Stewart is the sensible lets talk things out kind of guy. Stephen is the over the top, worst case, defcon 1 disaster, conspiracy theorist. I couldn't believe he testified before a subcommittee last year, that was amazing.

    I laughed so hard at his speech at the hearing I started to crying. I still can't believe he pulled that off with a outright straight face.

    I don't know if his statement or the look on some of the subcommittee member's faces were better. That one lady was laughing and trying to hide it, and mr. grumpy was furious he was there.

    I remember he tried to prevent Colbert from speaking.

    It's not I suppose. Maybe I should have created a separate thread.
