No Stephen Colbert Tonight And Likely This Whole Week as Host Continues to Recuperate from Appendix


One day Stephen Colbert will write a book with an appendix.

But he has no more appendix after it ruptured following Thanksgiving.

The result was all of last week’s shows were cancelled.

Now it looks like this week’s aren’t happening either. There’s no show tonight and likely none until next Monday.

Colbert said on Threads that he was following doctor’s order and would see us all soon. But not right now.

So talk show hosts are human! What a surprise!

Scheduled guests this week were to include Sarah Paulson, Jason Isbell, Mark Ruffalo, Nicki Minaj, Sara Bareilles and former congresswoman Liz Cheney. They will all have to stand outside Jimmy Fallon’s studio and see if they can get on stage!

Speedy recovery to Colbert. You know he’s not feeling well because he always shows up for the Kennedy Center Honors, but was absent yesterday when the show taped in DC.

Isn’t it weird that Colbert’s appendix ruptured right after having David Letterman as a guest? I’m just sayin’…
