TEN may be about to be owned by CBS but fans of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert are scratching their heads over the sudden absence of the CBS show from schedules.
Repeats have been airing for two weeks with Colbert away from his desk in New York, but while he returned to duties today TEN no longer has the show scheduled.
Instead of following a repeat of The Project, it is now replaced by observational series 48 Hours.
On social media fans are asking if the show is returning:
This is dreadful. Stephen has been away but is back on 5.9.17 so surely the show should be broadcast again tomorrow night or as soon after it airs in the US as possible – yet it has gone for over a week and been replaced with 48hrs. Why oh why?
please let us plebs know what has happened to The Late Show with Stephen Colbert……..I was waiting in anticipation to tune in to see what the new episode would be like after the break but nothing 🙁 🙁 🙁 and forget about watching on 10play out here in the bush.
Channel 10 should let us know what’s happened to The Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
Where has Stephen Colbert gone ?
Hi guys, anyone know why Channel Ten have stopped playing the Colbert show? Still playing Corden…
I’m dying‼️AUSTRALIA The Stephan Colbert Show was CUT from lineup by WIN TV who acquired mgnt. of Northern NSW from TEN TV in Sydney.
Other quiet changes to schedules have seen FOX-owned The Simpsons repeats reduced to one night a week, 7:30pm Sundays, however that too is out while Australian Survivor is being roadblocked across 3 channels.
The CBS bid for TEN goes before creditors next Tuesday and could potentially face a shareholder challenge thereafter.
Updated: A TEN spokesperson said “Colbert is on hiatus and will return soon.”
Further update: Show returns tonight.
