    The Jewish people really are a great group of people. I’m always amazed by
    how much a lot of people hate them. They are one of the few religious
    groups that I actually enjoy learning about – Reform Jews in particular. I
    fully recognize that the ultra-Orthodox wingnuts are insane but most Jews
    have an awesome tradition with their faith. Christians and Muslims could
    learn a thing or two from them.

    I’m extremely dissatisfied with CBS for not properly maintaining their app
    as they had been — not just for this show, but for *several* others as
    well.

    Poor rating for CBS in this last month of 2015.

    You have to at least put a ‘C’ at the beginning. ‘Chanukah’ is the best

    the only thing funny about this is how a well known bible teacher is so
    clueless about a holiday celebrating a jewish recovery from attempted
    genocide. sorry colbert – but jews are laughing at you, not with you.

    Aa an Israeli, I have no idea what’s the big deal Americans are making of
    Hannukkah; over here it’s just another one of a dozen religious holidays,
    which, as an adult, you’re mainly aware of because school is out and you
    have to figure out what to do with the fuc… with the kids. You want a
    major holiday – a combination of thanksgiving and christmas – that would be
    Passover. Lots more comedy potential, too – what with the torture of having
    to sit for hours and listen to a reading of one of the most inane texts
    written by Man…

    This severely disappoints me when Colbert reminds me about his foolish
    religion side. Hard to take you seriously calling out politicians b.s.,
    when you believe a religion just as ignorant and non fact based.

    how original are your jokes? I’ve always wondered how they come up with new
    material every night. Is it actually new material or just old stuff that
    hasn’t been said In a while? is it possible to run out of funny jokes? Man
    my brain sure goes crazy while nearly falling into a diabetic coma.
