Comedy Central has suspended the Colbert Report throughColbert-gay-history.jpg the rest of the week and will be running repeats instead.

"Due to unforeseen circumstances, the show will air repeat episodes on Wednesday, February 15 and Thursday, February 16," Comedy Central Senior VP for Communications Steve Albani told POLITICO.

Albani would not comment on the specific reasons for the suspension, saying Comedy Central was "not providing any additional details at this time."
It is expected that the suspension of original production will not be indefinite, and that the show will return soon.

I wonder what's up? Any ideas?
