What a scary time.

What a sad, sad day for The Colbert Report fans!
Last night, December 18 was the series finale of Stephen Colbert's nine-year-long run on Comedy Central.
However, never one to do anything small, the show was a star-studded affair that found Patrick Stewart, Andy Cohen, James Franco, Jon Stewart, Bill Clinton and literally SO MANY OTHERS singing We'll Meet Again to help Stephen off to immortality.
Seriously, the host of the show (officially) can't die because HE killed Death last night in the last segment of Cheating Death.
Which means he'll be
Remember that time you got into a bike accident and had to get Gene to fill in for you at work for a week?
Well, when you're Bono, you can't get just any temp.
So when the injured U2 frontman needed a replacement to perform at the surprise (RED) concert in NYC, he found some superb substitutes!
First, Chris Martin of Coldplay filled in with the perfect tone!
Be careful what you post on Facebook! Elizabeth Lauten learned that the hard way over the holidays.
Lauten, the communications director for Rep. Stephen Fincher (R-Tenn), came under fire when she criticized Sasha and Malia Obama's demeanor at President Obama's annual turkey pardon on social media.
Her (now deleted) Facebook post read:
"Dear Sasha and Malia, I get you're both in those awful teen years, but you're a part of the First Family, try showing a little class. At least respect the part you play. Then again your mother and father don't respect their positions very much, or the nation for that matter, so I'm guessing you're coming up a little short in the 'good role model' department. Nevertheless, stretch yourself. Rise to the occasion. Act like being in the White House matters to you. Dress like you deserve respect, not a spot at a bar. And certainly don't make faces during televised public events."
After receiving backlash from commenters across the political spectrum, the G.O.P. aide issued an apology statement.
We bet he makes the most amazing grandpa!
President Bill Clinton spent Veteran's Day on Tuesday at Ellen, speaking with the talk show host about his new role as grandfather.
As you may know, his daughter Chelsea gave birth to a baby girl named Charlotte back in September, and he spoke with Ellen DeGeneres all about having another kid in his life, saying:
"Hillary and I only have one child and she's quite wonderful, but it's been a long time since she's been that age. So the biggest hoot for me, my granddaughter turned six weeks on Friday, is watching them wake up to the world."
It's a great feeling, it's part of the rhythm of life. It helps you come to terms in a really positive way, with your own mortality. It's just a joyful experience. I love it. I'm so happy.
We're so glad to hear that the former Prez is up for the challenge of being a granddad, and just from hearing him speak, we can tell he's going to do a great job.
And he's going to have to, considering that Hillary might have her hands full running for President in the next couple of years!

And since it was the perfect baby reveal, Chelsea Clinton decided to do the same thing with Charlotte!
They're already loving every minute of being grandparents!
Chelsea Clinton was quick to let the world know that her daughter Charlotte has made her way into this world!
And now we get to see a pic!
