Watch The Colbert Report

The Colbert Report is one of the most interesting and amusing cable TV talk shows currently on the air. Every Monday through Thursday night, viewers of Comedy Central's late night lineup are treated to the comedy stylings of Stephen Colbert and his brand of satire. The show is full of laughs, but it also functions as a critique on more serious cable news programs by not only taking a look at the major news stories of the day, but by also examining how major news outlets are covering stories. Additionally, The Colbert Report takes a nightly stab at the many conservative-minded news and talk show hosts that populate the majority of the cable news networks.

Stephen Colbert is the show's host and its namesake, and he uses his own name while hosting the show. However, the version of Colbert that people tune in every night to see is an altered version of the comedian. In fact, the Stephen Colbert of the television show is a character that Colbert developed through years of performing and observing the worlds of both politics and the news. As a host, Colbert is loud, opinionated, smug and ridiculously patriotic. Moreover, he often presents news in much the same manner as professional news anchors, often for great comedic effect.

Another humorous aspect of the show is the way in which Colbert handles appearances by guests. On most interview programs, the host introduces the guest and the guest walks out to applause to greet the host. This process is turned upside down on the Colbert Report because after the host introduces the guest, Colbert rises to applause and fanfare before greeting the guest, who is usually already seated at a table. This type of comic self-aggrandizement is typical of Colbert's style, and it is a large reason why the show is so popular. It works because the audience is in on the joke, and they know that Colbert is, at heart, an entertainer who simply wants to make his audience laugh.

There have been many guests on the Colbert Report during its run on Comedy Central, and a number of political developments have come and gone. However, the quality of the show has not dropped through the many changes. This is because of the presence of Stephen Colbert, who knows exactly how to host a show that makes audiences laugh and think deeply at the same time. Thanks to Colbert's expert skills as a comedian, The Colbert Report is one of the most unique, yet funniest shows on cable television.
