The Colbert Report has been broadcasting shows from Philadelphia this week and the Multichannel News website says “from April 14 through April 17, The Colbert Report averaged 1.5 million viewers from 11:30 p.m. to noon, according to Nielsen Media Research data”. The appearances of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and John Edwards probably helped the ratings along slightly. When Hillary Clinton appeared on the show, she said to Stephen “I just love solving problems”. Barack Obama appeared via satellite. Also, don’t forget The Colbert Report should be coming to FX UK in May. An unofficial Colbert fansite has posted some further details, including the claim More 4 had the chance to buy the rights for the show, but they didn’t want it.
