Hallelujah! The late-night show host returns after a brief, mysterious absence due to “unforeseeable circumstances.” So, what happened?
Have you noticed that the sun shines just a little brighter, the weather is not as bitter and you have a spring in your step? This can only mean one thing…
The return of Stephen Colbert!
That’s right, kids. After cancelling two shows last week due to personal reasons, the always-funny Colbert is back to grace our television sets.
At the beginning of the show, Colbert addressed his absence and dispelled some of the far-fetched rumours that have taken over the net.
So let’s shoot them down together: His show was not cancelled, he’s not in trouble with the Pope and he has not had any plastic surgery done. This still leaves the possibility of an alien abduction, a chakra realignment or an amateur curling match in Rio.
Colbert did give the audience a clue to his absence, with this mysterious shout-out:
“Oh, one more thing. Evidently having 11 children makes you tough as nails,” he said, “Confidential to a lovely lady.”
Most likely referring to his mother, who did have 11 children and was rumoured to be ill. Hopefully, this means that she is on a steady road to recovery.
Good news, high five! And, Godspeed!
