Jon Stewart will be next. Hopefully not anything serious though. Possibly technical or health problem?

Not from what I've read, they canceled the taping of the show, and contacted the ticket holders by email, so the show never took place. Rollingstone is saying the cancellation may be due to a family emergency.

I hope nothing is wrong with Colbert or his family. He seems like a good dude and he's a genius IMO.

The last time the Daily Show went on quick suspension of taping, it was because Jon Stewarts wife gave birth. There's likely a similar situation here. Hopefully it's a family blessing like Stewart's and not a tragedy.
