The Colbert Report looks set to be coming to FX for UK TV audiences very soon if a pending deal goes through. The official FX UK website reports “It looks as though FX UK are about to close the deal with MTV to bring Comedy Central’s Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report to the UK for the summer”. The post on the official FX site just says “launch date to follow”. We have been running a petition to get Colbert on a UK TV channel for a while now, so this really is excellent news. Watch this space. There might be a bit of irony if/when he comes to FX – the majority of his act is making fun of Fox News, etc. If you can’t wait, head on over to the new look official website for The Colbert Report for show clips and more – click here.
