The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that this website is a companion to the popular TV show The Colbert Report. The site has plenty of clips from the series and even entire episodes, an online store for Colbert merchandise, a page to order tickets to see The Colbert Report, bulletin boards where fans can discuss their favorite jokes, and plenty of other content related to the show. The jokes are generally aimed at more mature viewers, especially people who are up to date on their current events. There are some references to drinking and sex, but the material isn’t especially raunchy; however, it probably will go over the heads of younger viewers.

Is it any good?
Fans of Stephen Colbert’s TV show, The Colbert Report, will find much to like about the COLBERT NATION website, mainly because most of the content online is drawn from the series. There are highlight reels with some of his funniest bits, user-created mashups featuring various segments edited together, even entire episodes. Colbert’s wicked political humor tends to draw fans together, people who agree with his worldview and want to find kindred spirits, and the website offers an ideal forum for them to share their ideas and gripe about current events. The site may not appeal to visitors who disagree with Colbert’s left-leaning political stance, but will definitely strike a chord with people who are up to date on current events.
Online interaction: Visitors can post comments on the various segments, and chat on bulletin boards.
