Cartoon Trump lets Colbert in on his plan to bribe GOP delegates

Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump had a big win in the New York Republican primaries this week, but that doesn’t mean he felt the need to book an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. No worries, however, because Colbert brought back Cartoon Donald Trump to be a sufficiently entertaining — and overall more coherent and articulate — substitute.

This week, The Stephen and The Cartoon Donald discussed what he would do if there was a contested Republican National Convention in Cleveland this summer and he had to compete with Senator Ted Cruz to win over reluctant delegates. The answer was obvious: Bribes, bribes, bribes. More →

Viacom yanks The Colbert Report and The Daily Show from Hulu

Viacom yanks The Colbert Report and The Daily Show from Hulu

hulu-daily-show

Hulu suffered a setback today when Viacom announced that it is pulling the plug on both The Colbert Report and The Daily Show effective March 10th, 2010. Fans of the two shows need not panic as each show, though gone from Hulu, will still be available online via Comedy Central at TheDailyShow.com and ColbertNation.com. Money is rumored to be the reason for the split with Viacom reportedly pushing for a more lucrative advertising agreement or even an upfront lump cash sum that Hulu was unwilling to provide. Despite its amicable press release, Hulu must be feeling a bit of a sting as both The Daily Show and the Colbert Report consistently ranked within the top ten all time watched shows. With two of its headliners gone, should Hulu be concerned about other programs following suit or is it merely waiting for Viacom to come groveling back after failing to make it on its own ?

Stephen Colbert rocks the Grammys with an Apple iPad

We didn’t think we’d see an iPad surface so soon… If you were keeping up with the Grammys, you were probably just as shocked as we were when Stephen Colbert pulled one out to present Song of the Year. And of course, the iPad’s cameo wouldn’t be complete without a little gloating from Colbert himself. “Jay Z, did you not get one of these in your gift bag? Am I cooler than you?!” Bravo, Stephen Colbert. Hit the break for a video clip. More →
