Fans of the show are left hanging as to what happened to the 'Colbert Report'.  Is there an illness?  Punishment for a behind the scenes discretion?  Just a publicity stunt?

 

Comedy Central's "Colbert Report" is off the air and it's a mystery why. An expected new episode of the show was replaced by a repeat on Wednesday. Comedy Central said Thursday's live show will be off, too.

The network said it was airing the repeats "due to unforeseen circumstances," but offered no other explanation. A person close to the show, who wasn't authorized to speak publically on the matter, told The Associated Press that new episodes are expected to return soon.
