The Colbert Report is a faux news program that works as a great companion show to the very popular Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Stephen Colbert has taken his news correspondent job on The Daily Show to a whole new level in his self-titled The Colbert Report. Colbert's show has its own spin and the correspondent role which he created on The Daily Show has developed into a new format that features Colbert's views on current news events, plus interviews with those making the headlines. The Colbert Report is in the mold of the cable news shows helmed by "news personalities" like Bill O'Reilly and Anderson Cooper, but with a satirical edge.
