Stephen Colbert’s The Colbert Report was brought to a halt this week.

People reports that due to unforeseen circumstances, the show will air repeat episodes on Wednesday, Feb. 15, and Thursday, Feb. 16.

It was also reported that the halt was due to an unspecified family emergency. Today (Feb. 17) the New York Post reported that he took a break because of his 91-year-old mother being ill.

We hope everything works out for them.
