Hello Hubsters! As we gear up for the final episode, we thought it behoovy to get introspective about our own personal experiences with The Colbert Report. One of the great joys for those of us on the Hub staff is hearing from our community, because without you all we could not celebrate the wonderfulness of the soon-to-expiring Joy Machine.
So this week, we are asking you to send in taping reporTs from any tapings you may have attended over the past nine years. Or, comment here and leave your thoughts about your favorite moments, why you become a fan, or what makes The Colbert Report special to you.
Taping reporTs should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for participating!

Welcome to “A Look Back,” where we review and celebrate select clips from the overwhelmingly voluminous video catalog and the many splendid works of Stephen T. Colbert over the years.
Happy Thanksgiving, Hubsters! I hope our U.S. community members are having a great time with family and friends. I am preparing to deep-fry a turkey for the first time, so keep me in your thoughts/prayers. We may be ordering take out if all else fails.
Although I am doing my best domestic diva impression, thoughts of TCR and its impending finale loom heavily in my mind….how about you guys? I haz a sad, especially with the holidays upon us.
I thought it would be nice to review some great turkey-related moments from the Report before the show shuts down. We are going to feature Joseph Gobbles, the best TCR turkey ever to be had, and a pretty fierce segment about that weird time last year when Hannukah and Thanksgiving intersected. Review these great moments, and shout out your thoughts in the comments!
