The Colbert Report

The Colbert Roport debuted on Comedy Central last night to the delight of many who have been a fan of Stephen Colbert's work on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart.

Playing a self-obsessed news host with a set design belligerent to praising his ego, including a desk in the shape of a giant C and a candid mantle placement for his Emmy, Colbert takes a blatant stab at the celibritization of the American media.

It was odd watching him solo, and one might suspect the new show would be what American Dad is the Family Guy, a ridiculous rehash of one already perfectly adequate program. But with still a few kinks to work out and some room to break in he has proven himself with a great start.
