Happy Ninth Anniversary to ‘The Colbert Report’

Truthiness - The Colbert Report

As Stephen referenced earlier this week,The Colbert Report premiered way back on October 17, 2005. Those of us who were familiar with Stephen Colbert on The Daily Show were excited, of course, but little did we know what an impact the show would make on our lives and in our hearts. While we are sad to see the program to be taken off the air in a short while, we are cheered by knowing that Stephen will be moving on to an opportunity for him to be “better known” by a larger viewing audience. And here on the Hub and in other fan forums we can appreciate the friendships that have sprung up as a result of the Colbert Nation making its voice heard.

On behalf of all the Hub staff, Happy Anniversary to the past and present staff and crew of The Colbert Report! Thank you for nine great years!

Stephen Colbert Serves as Apple’s ‘Chief of Secrecy’

It’s no secret that Stephen Colbert is a huge Apple fanboy, but his taking a call from Apple’s head software designer during a product presentation took the audience by surprise:

Forget hosting The Late Show, Stephen Colbert just lined up the gig of a lifetime: Intergalactic Chancellor of Apple.

Well, his exact title is still a work in progress, if Thursday’s iPad event is any evidence. In a very dad-like phone call, Apple’s senior VP of software design Craig Federighi explained to Colbert how the comedian would help the tech company “triple-down” on secrecy — something much needed after Wednesday’s iPad leak.
