The last bastion of “truthiness” on cable television will leave the airwaves Thursday night.
Actually, Montclair resident Stephen Colbert invented the word truthiness himself, which means “That which one holds to be true regardless of what is supported by fact. “
Colbert also invented a conservative loudmouth character who spouted off anything and everything for nine years on “The Colbert Report.” Colbert has vowed that the character will disappear when his show does.
Many people are wondering who they’ll see when Colbert resurfaces in 2015 as new host of “The Late Show” on CBS, and what to expect from our New Jersey native. Personally, I’m hoping he keeps his show writers, because I see The Colbert Report as the most well written comedy on television.
Along that line, NorthJersey.com reports that the last guest on "The Colbert Report" will be Stephen’s "colleague and lifelong friend Grimmy, "the Grim Reaper. One rumor suggests we might see Colbert’s character killed off by the Reaper Thursday night.
