Congress and Colbert. Taking extended vacations for far too long. 
 
Absolutely!!!!  It's been too long Stephen, glad to see you back!  Must...have....my...Colbert....fix.....! (scratches arms)
 
I would be, if you'd show it in the UK, dangit!  Don't be put off by our ignorance and low viewing figures...there's a colbert sized hole over here that needs to be force fed republican satire
 
+Jamie Patmore Full episodes are available on the website less than a few hours after airing.  In case you weren't aware.  If not, it does suck you can't see it in the UK.
 
Yeah - I do watch them...but I have to do it via ahem clandestine means, cos if you try and watch it on the comedy central website from a UK IP address, it gets blocked - booo comedy central!   Colbert's a genius, and deserves a wider (European) audience - just needs to be packaged right...I think the problem is that because we don't have Fox news etc over here, people aren't aware of what's being satirised 
 
+Jamie Patmore That sucks man, I'm sorry to hear that.  I'm betting that's a Viacom thing though, and not necessarily a Colbert thing.  Can you watch the Daily Show w/o going through extraordinary means, or do you get the same result?
 
well (and, errr, I'm hoping this doesn't incriminate me!) I just watch it on the CC site using VPN software that spoofs me with a US IP...but it's a shame that it's that much hassle to watch it, you know?  I think there's an appreciation for comedy like colbert over here that they're not tapping in to/exploiting.  Thanks for the link +Marc Roelofs - but same issue unfortunately :(  
 
+Brian Murphy Sorry - forgot to answer your q - we actually sporadically get the Daily Show over here (we always at least get the Global Edition, but sporadically all of them) - but if not, the same means are available to watch it.  Daily Show is excellent - there really isn't anything quite like it here
 
+Jamie Patmore Oh no problem at all, I was just curious if it's a specifically something to Colbert, or if it was a Viacom issue.  If it's Colbert, then there's probably something you could do about it.  But, Viacom's a whole other hill of beans....ergo, no way.

Thankfully, you have alternate (VPN) solutions.
 
In the immortal words of a previous commenter, "I am your show."

Truer words are rarely typed.
 
Stephen Colbert, I'm so excited. I can't hide it!
 
I only caught the last half.  It's been so long I forgot it was on until the last minute.  Missed John Stewart altogether.
 
Cleveland Brown liked how you ended the Bill O'Reilly bit with the apology tour.
