Comedy Central’s popular "The Cofbert Report" has suspended production for the week because the mother of host Stephen Colbert is seriously ill, reports the Huffington Post.
The story notes that Colbert’s mother is 91.
The show scheduled repeats for Wednesday and Thursday nights; the program doesn’t tape on Friday evenings.
“Colbert Report’s” companion show, Comedy Central’s "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart," has twice previously canceled shows at the last minute due to personal reasons: once when Stewart’s second child was born and the second time when a staff member passed away suddenly, according to Third Beat Magazine.
Comedy Central hasn’t commented on the cancellation, according to Mediaite.com.
