Colbert Takes On Massachusetts Upskirt Ruling for Freedom

The good news: a day after the ruling Massachusetts state representatives voted in legislation that would apply a $5k fine and jail time to upskirting, with penalties twice that if the victim is a minor.



Ms. Marvel on the Colbert Report

Stephen Colbert is a notably giant nerd, but call me a cynic: I didn’t think the news of a new Ms. Marvel would ping on his radar. Of course, I’m quite happy (and amused) to be wrong.


For A More Civilized Age

Breaking Bad, As Performed by the Cast of Downton Abbey [VIDEO]

There is very little that makes my heart gladder than posh, classy people being silly. I’m not sure what it is in particular about Downton Abbey‘s Hugh Bonneville, Jim Carter, and Rob James-Collier, in character, performing scenes from Breaking Bad on The Colbert Report that makes me so giddy… frankly, I think it might be that the sleep deprivation that’s followed in the aftermath of last night’s The Hobbit screening has left me a few (million) brain cells short today. That might be why I’m gigging like a loon at Lord Grantham screaming “You mother—!” upon learning who shared his top-secret recipe for “Earl Blue.”

Or maybe it really is just that funny, and I’m not as out of it today as I think I am.

Martin Freeman Shows Off His Legos on the Colbert Report

And for anyone whose exhausted by The Hobbit coverage, here’s a Russian cat that doesn’t care a bit about the strange claw in the comfy new box it found.

Maurice Sendak on Children, Childhood, and Death; Unedited and Uncensored

When news of Maurice Sendak’s death spread earlier this week, the video most often linked (and for good reason) was a recent interview he’d done with Stephen Colbert. Last night the Colbert Report kindly aired several previously unseen clips from the segment that were edited out. They’re pretty special.

(If anybody finds a video for international folks, please leave it in the comments.)

Almost Totally Excellent

Kermit the Frog Delivers Insightful Commentary on the Republican Primary; Takes Newt Jokes Personally

Yeah, don’t imply that amphibians would have a particular insight into Newt Gingrich. Come on, Stephen. Also can I simply express admiration that the Colbert Report writers remember fondly both Guy Smiley and Kermit’s early history as Sesame Street’s premiere investigative reporter.

Wise Words

Stephen Colbert’s Interview With Maurice Sendak Is As Awesome As You Heard It Was [Video]

You may have heard about the two-part interview that Stephen Colbert conducted with author/illustrator Maurice Sendak (Where the Wild Things Are). You may have also heard that it was pretty awesome, and everything you’ve heard is correct. We’ve posted both parts here, and we invite you to join this highly intellectual discussion on who Sendak really writes for and his opinions on one of the current presidential candidates. If we’d been a fly on the wall for this, we would have buzzed around Maurice Sendak just to see what kind of curmudgeonly reaction he’d have. Part 2 appears after the jump.



Stephen Colbert Interviews Elijah Wood and Cannot Help But Bring Up LOTR [Video]

Stephen Colbert really loves J.R.R. Tolkien, and he will pretend to be interested in Happy Feet 2 for as long as he can manage until he starts talking to last night’s guest Elijah Wood about both Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. He tried, you guys. Seriously. But alas! Elijah Wood was just so incredibly “right there in front of him,” and the discussion — or as much of the discussion that he was allowed to have, since Stephen Colbert knows things about The Hobbit that he “wants to broadcast” but cannot — was forced to commence, accompanied by the daintiest sword fight that ever took place. (Because those things are authentic, people.)

Oh, and something about a penguin movie.

I Guess I Can't Argue With That

Jeff Bridges Genuinely Cares About Your Vaginal Well-Being [Video]

While appearing on The Colbert Report to promote his new country music album (!), Jeff Bridges went on a short rift to quickly promote Summer’s Eve products. Because he cares. Stephen Colbert has also discussed Summer’s Eve products on his show, mostly because it had a really stupid ad campaign. We, “Women,” endorse Jeff Bridges as our official spokesdude for Summer’s Eve products. No more stupid fist puppets depicting racial stereotypes. Just Jeff Bridges. Pleaseandthankyou.
