By The Colbert Report standards this was just an average show, but it is still worth watching. I really only have time to catch this show once or twice every few weeks, and I wish I could watch it more as it is one of the best on television.
Stephen Colbert's humor is smart, he mainly talks about politics, and yet it has mass appeal. Anyone and everyone can watch this show and enjoy it, and that point cannot be made for too many other programs out there.
The clothesline sketch was pretty dumb though. They should have rethought using that.
