“The Colbert Report” finale could have easily turned into a funeral.
Instead, it was just plain fun.
Stephen Colbert knew all too well that Colbert Nation has been mourning the impending loss of its fearless leader who was stepping down after nine years of blowing enough hot air to turn Antarctica into Aruba.
Fans had been speculating that their pontificating, right-wing know-it-all might leave “The Colbert Report” in a body bag, given that Grimmy was listed as the final guest.
Once again, the Second City alum outsmarted us and achieved immortality.
