The Colbert ReportClosed Captioning
Open iTunes to preview or buy TV shows.
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.

My wife and I love The Colbert Report. However, we don't have cable (by choice), and we try to respect copyright law, so we don't get to watch it as much as we'd like. So I am *almost* thrilled to be able to get these shows on iTunes. I just see two shortcomings: $10 for 16 episodes is a good deal in terms of cost-per-minute, relative to music downloads, but is still a little steep relative to getting cable. If I regularly download both Colbert and the Daily Show, I'm almost halfway to what my monthly cable bill would be. Yeah, I can put these episodes on my iPod and so forth, but I know how to do that via a DVR, as well. But, Colbert is worth it. DRM. Apple has the best DRM approach of any music service out there (except eMusic, which is DRM free! Yay!), but that's not saying much, because DRM is fundamentally broken. The idea with encryption is to keep the decoding key secret from those who shouldn't see the message. But with DRM, which is essentially a form of encryption, the intended recipient and the party you are trying to hide the key from is one in the same: the customer. DRM systems are always beatable, because you have to give the customer the key, and no matter how well you hide that fact, someone is going to break it. So in the end, DRM is a hassle for customers, limits our ability to archive our shows and songs, and ultimately doesn't work. In fact, I don't buy songs from Apple because of DRM. I only buy Colbert here because he's so damn funny and I'd rather watch a legal, crippled video than a DRM-free illegal one. So, Apple, here's my bottom line: I am pro-copyright, pro-fair use, and anti-DRM. Please figure out another way to protect copyrights while providing more freedom for your customers. You are more enlightened than the other players (except eMusic) right now, but you will need to offer better terms before I, myself, buy anything other than Colbert through this store (yes, I'm compromising my anti-DRM principles to watch Colbert). Cheers.
A lone voice crying in the wilderness!
The first time I saw the Colbert Report (pronounced "re-pour"), I wasn't sure if he was serious or not... The fact is, he is dead serious. Serious about jabbing you in the funny bone until you can't stand it any more. Colbert channels every pompous right-wing talking head with the aplomb of a bear spearing salmon going upstream (and bears are a big issue with Colbert - you'll see if you watch long enough). Watch this show and love it, or you'll be dead to me.
An American Hero!
Never in the history of American Time has there been an All-American voice as American as Stephen Colbert. If you don't buy a multi-pass to this show, the terrorists have won!
