Colbert Mocks Fox News Ratings

Fox News’ ratings got the Stephen Colbert treatment last night. “They tout their ratings so much, I’m surprised they don’t slap a blonde wig on them and give them their own show,” he said, but only before launching into a full segment about the network’s African-American viewership.

It seems that recent tweet by the NYTimes’ Brian Stelter pointing at the network’s black audience has now directly inspired a “Colbert Report” segment: “Anatomy lesson: I tweet that Fox News has 29k black viewers; HuffPo picks it up; Colbert researcher calls to fact-check; he uses it on-air,” Stelter wrote last night.
