The Colbert Report will resume Monday after production was unexpectedly shut down due to "unforeseen circumstances" on Wednesday and Thursday.
According to a report from The New York Post, Stephen Colbert took the time off to care for his ailing 91-year-old mother in South Carolina. "They are a very private family," a source told the Post. "It's not surprising that he did not want anyone to know what was going on."
Prior to Wednesday's taping, audience members received a last-minute email saying that their reservations had to be canceled. No further details were provided.
