Last night's "Colbert Report" was truly epic. I can't believe so much happened in one half-hour. The much-touted showdown with The Decembrists over the Greenscreen Challenge was only part of it; that is to say, only the excuse for an episode that was truly Baroque in all its lavish excesses, featuring guest turns by Morley Safer, Eliot Spitzer, Peter Frampton, Cheap Trick's Rick Nielson (who, we learn, wrote the Colbert theme), The Decembrists' and lead guitarist Chris Funk, NYT/Rolling Stone rock critic Anthony DeCurtis, 9-time Grammy winner Jim Anderson, a hilarious and tuneful song by Apples In Stereo frontman Rob Schneider and, unbelievably, Henry freakin' Kissinger ("Stephen, it is time to Rock"). Okay, this guy can get pretty much anyone to do anything." We've got vid and pics below but honestly, this one has to be seen in its entirety to be believed so go do that at Comedy Central's "Motherload" site where it should show up in its entirety soon (it's still going in reruns today; actually now at 2:30 and at 8:30pm). But first, Nation, some props: To us, ETP, for recognizing that this Greenscreen Challenge thing was gonna be big way back in August.
