Ticket holders received an email yesterday announcing the show's last minute cancellation:
“Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have canceled our taping for the date of your ticket reservation, February 15, 2012.”
Viewers who tuned into the show last night found a previously aired episode featuring Colbert discussing Herman Cain.
So far, Comedy Central has not commented on the production stop.
Colbert Nation will have to settle with Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" for the time being to get their super serious news fix.
