Richard Branson Colbert Report Interview To Air

Good news for awkward TV fans: The Colbert Report episode where Sir Richard Branson spills a mug of water on Stephen Colbert‘s head is making it to TV after all. Comedy Central will be airing the episode on Wednesday, August 22.

For their part, Virgin USA contacted us to let us know that “the segment was never intended to air live” and that “Richard enjoyed his time with Stephen, and the splash was part of the fun.”

We just want to ride on “Air Colbert” the next time we go to London, though.
