1st Review Of The Colbert Report

By Brian 

Lisa de Moraes offers a speed review of The Colbert Report:

Colbert playing faux Bill O’Reilly/Joe Scarborough. Not so good. Highlight: “Anyone can read the news to you. I promise to feel the news at you!”

Colbert interviewing NBC’s Stone Phillips. Much better, especially when he tried to nail Phillips by asking him on what three nights does NBC air neither a “Dateline” nor a “Law & Order.” Phillips got two right.

Dueling Phillips and Colbert reading bogus headlines with gravitas. Inspired.
