Weekend Watch: Colbert Gets Christmassy
I'm already counting the hours for the weekend on this very hump day Wednesday. Stephen Colbert's "A Colbert Christmas: The Greatest Gift of All" will air on Sunday night on Comedy Central at 10pm ET, and oh how we need a little Christmas now. Here are some highlights:
Dedecked in the colors of the Israeli flag, Stephen welcomes his favorite Jewish friend for a song about Hannukah and why it sucks compared to Christmas.
Willie Nelson, as one of the three wise men, stops by with marajuana for all.
Elvis Costello will sing a Yuletide ditty, replacing our own self loathing and morally bankrupt souls with temporary warmth and cheer.
So pour yourself a nice cup-o-nog and snuggle up by the flatscreen. Forget the economy, your joblessness and the Repo Man at your door. Christmas has come early and Little Bear is ready to take it on...variety style.
