A Comedy Central spokesman has confirmed that The Colbert Report will air originals again beginning Monday “as originally scheduled.” The show’s website includes the schedule for the upcoming week, including guests Nancy Pelosi and Placido Domingo. The faux-news show starring Stephen Colbert took an unplanned hiatus beginning on Wednesday, when ticketholders to that night’s taping were notified that episodes of the show had been canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances” for at least the rest of the week. There were rumors Colbert stepped away to care for his ill mother, but the network never gave a reason for the stoppage. Colbert did post on Twitter on Friday: “My family and I would like to thank everyone who has offered their thoughts and prayers. We are grateful and touched by your concern.”
