Steven_Colbert_Getty.jpgWhen viewers tuned in to Comedy Central on Wednesday night expecting a new episode of Colbert Report,” they were instead met with a rerun of the Stephen Colbert-led “fake news” favorite.

Deadline reports that when the audience members turned up for Colbert’s Wednesday show, they were turned away and told that the show had been canceled for “unforseen reasons,” and would be suspended for at least the rest of the week and possibly longer.

“The Colbert Report’s” companion show, Jon Stewart’s “The Daily Show,” is airing as scheduled.
