The Colbert Report’s first airing on FX UK will go out on Tuesday 6th May at 11pm. The Colbert Report will air at a regular 11pm 30-minute timeslot on the channel Monday-Friday, and there’s a chance to catchup on all the week’s episodes on a Sunday night when FX UK air all four shows from that week back-to-back at around midnight (on Sunday 11th May the reruns start at 11.50pm and run through to 1.20am – that’s a lot of Colbert!). FX UK is available on Virgin Media channel 179, Tiscali TV channel 10 and Sky channel 165.
The Colbert Report will air on a one-day delay from America (like More 4 with The Daily Show), and – as The Colbert Report only airs shows on Comedy Central in the US Monday-Thursday (like The Daily Show) – the Monday evening 11pm show on FX UK will be a compilation show with highlights from the previous week. FX UK have launched a new Colbert minisite at www.fxuk.com/series/the-colbert-report – check it out!
