The Colbert ReportClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV programmes.
The prince of punditry Stephen Colbert is here, winning every one-sided argument and taking on today's hottest issues with none of the seriousness they deserve. Watch him making "Dead to Me" judgments or showing guests how sadly misinformed they are (take that, Anderson Cooper and George Lucas). Brash and unapologetic, the Peabody Award-winning The Colbert Report is state of the news commentary, with the passion of a religious revival, and the subtly of a pro-wrestling throw down.

Unhappy In The UK
I'm an English fan of The Colbert Report often watching clips on their web site but as they don't show it in the UK I've never seen a whole episode and I would love to be able to download them legally so please please please make this download available to British customers
Finally The Colbert Report comes to our shores! It had been on FX for a year, but they scrapped it without a word of warning after airing at ludicrous time slots. Now Brits can at last watch this wonderful show in their own time and without resorting to illegal tactics.
If you like The Daily Show, then this is even better. It's more suited to a UK audience, as it relies heavily on irony and the Colbert character hanging politicians by their own petard. Think Brass Eye or The Day Today with actual news.
Overseas Colbert is most famous for his White House Correspondents Dinner speech in which he eviscerated George W Bush to his face. The American media famously ignored it completely until the internet forced them to report on his existence. If you haven't seen that, look it up, for months it was top of the US iTunes charts.
It's great - one of my favourite programmes, but it's not available to watch in the UK! It says on iTunes on the left that you can watch it on comedy central, but you can't.
