Jon Huntsman Asks Stephen Colbert in Mandarin to Be His Running Mate (VIDEO)

Looking for that coveted Colbert bump to boost his current two percent standings in the Republican field, Gov. Jon Huntsman went on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). There, he fielded questions about Mormonism being referred to as a cult -- he equated it to Catholocism being called a cult when JFK was running -- and why he doesn't just run as a Democrat. When Stephen Colbert asked him to say the most "non-scary thing" Huntsman could think of in Mandaran -- he's fluent in the language -- he did. But Colbert still responded with, "Terrifying." When he asked what Huntsman had said, he replied, "I just said I think that you oughta consider being my running mate for vice president." That is terrifying. Imagine, a fictional character one heartbeat away from the presidency.

Colbert Suggests Waterboarding Dick Cheney to Get to the Truth (VIDEO)

Argued as the one man who might have been able to prevent the 9/11 attacks had the CIA been willing to share information, Ali Soufan resigned from the FBI in 2005 over this issue. Now he's written his memoir, 'The Black Banners: The Inside Story of 9/11 and the War Against al-Qaeda.' He talked on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central) about his successes as an interrogator, and what techniques do and don't work. Accordin to Soufan, who gathered a lot of information through his methods, waterboarding and other enhanced interrogation techniques simply don't work as effectively as outsmarting them with intelligence manipulation.

Harry Belafonte Sings a Duet With Stephen Colbert on 'The Colbert Report' (VIDEO)

Harry Belafonte rarely sings in public anymore. But he made an exception for 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). It really shouldn't have come as that big of a surprise to Colbert, considering the reception he got from Belafonte. The 'King of Calypso' seemed more honored and excited to be meeting Stephen Colbert and sitting in on his show than Colbert was to have him there. So when Colbert asked him if he would sing, the two broke into an impromptu duet. The 84-year old's voice may be raspier than it was, but he proved he's still the King, while Colbert was clearly enthralled at being able to sing with a living legend. It was a sweet moment, apparently for both men.

Colbert Wasn't 'Ready For Some Football' Without Hank Williams Jr. (VIDEO)

Apparently, Hank Williams Jr.'s weekly contribution to 'Monday Night Football' was more important than we ever realized. Stephen Colbert detailed just how lost he was when ESPN opted not to use it as the intro this week on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). The decision came after Williams made controversial statements on the 'Fox & Friends' show equating President Obama to Adolf Hitler . But with so little warning, the absence of Williams' song left Colbert in fact "dangerously unprepared for some football."

Stephen Colbert meeting Radiohead is such a special occasion, a regular episode of "The Colbert Report" wasn't sufficient.

Colbert and Fallon Realize Their 'Best Friends for Six Months' Pact is Over (VIDEO)

Somebody wasn't paying attention to the calendar. How else could you explain 12 days passing before Jimmy Fallon and Stephen Colbert realized that their 'Best Friends for Six Months' pact had expired. But it all came to light on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). Fallon showed up, and the two reminisced about the good times they've had as best friends, before realizing that they'd surpassed the six-month time limit set on their friendship. And so, they finally let loose with how much they hate one another, deciding they were now eternal enemies ... for six months.

Stephen Colbert Ends His Bromance with Jimmy Fallon (Video)

Top Moments: Ringer Is on a Boat and Bachelor Pad’s Squirmy Awkwardness

Our top moments of the week: 15. Orange You Glad You Did This? Award: Now that  Anderson Cooper  has come out of the closet about  his admiration  for  Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi , it's only fitting that they go out on a proper date. On his  new daytime talk show , the Jersey Shore  star takes Cooper for his  first spray tan . "I had no idea that Mr. Anderstand had muscles," Snooki says, as a sheepish, shirtless Cooper undergoes the process. "So when he took off his shirt, he had, like, a huge peanut muscle. Cool." Cooper, at least, seems pleased with the results: "Wow! I've never had a tan line like that." Does anyone speak Guidette? Please tell us that a "peanut muscle" isn't what we think it is. 14. Best Save:   Al Gore  makes a big no-no when he refers to  Stephen Colbert 's uber-conservative TV host alter-ego as "your character" while appearing on  The Colbert Report . Yes, everyone knows deep down that Colbert isn't  really  like his truthiness-loving persona, but he refuses to break. "I forgot for a moment; I'm so sorry," Gore explains. "You forgot what? You have completely lost me!" Colbert exclaims, before putting air quotes around Al Gore's name and bidding him adieu.  13. Least Self-Aware Reality Show Contestant (a highly competitive category):  Look, we all find overconfident reality-show contestants infinitely entertaining, but when it crosses over into the delusional, a line must be drawn (see No. 11). On the  Big Brother   finale, Adam is peeved that Rachel took Porsche instead of him to the final two, but tells Julie Chen that the fiery redhead, who eventually won, made the right choice for herself. "If I was in the final two, I would've won," he says emphatically. For what exactly? Being useless in practically every single challenge? Ambling through the whole season without any game plan whatsoever? Shaving your beard? Knowing 90210  trivia? In that case, yes, Adam, yes, you definitely would've won. Read More...

Al Gore Slips Up, Refers to Stephen Colbert's 'Character' (VIDEO)

Al Gore got so excited talking about his new '24 Hours of Reality' initiative with Current TV, that he must have forgotten where he was for a moment on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). He and Stephen Colbert were talking about the program, which culminates in an hour broadcast on Current TV on September 15 at 8PM ET, when Colbert asked about Keith Olbermann, who's now a broadcaster on the network. "I'm worried about him," Colbert said. "He scares me. Is he still yelling a lot?"

Diane Sawyer Talks Jackie Kennedy Special on 'Colbert Report' (VIDEO)

Jackie Kennedy has been elevated to an almost legendary status in the world of politics. In Diane Sawyer's new television special, 'Jacqueline Kennedy: In Her Own Words,' the former First Lady "speaks" candidly in a way people have never heard before. But Stephen Colbert was surprised by this on 'The Colbert Report' (Weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central). "Were women allowed to have their own words back then?" he asked. "I thought their husbands could have them committed if they used their own words." He went on to list some of the less-than-flattering descriptions Kennedy used in describing various foreign dignitaries and other famous people she met through her life.
