In this age of skepticism and not getting it, Americans want the truth…iness. And no one has more truthiness than it-getter, flagophile, and four-star American hero, Stephen Colbert. Now, with this collection of The Colbert Report’s finest moments, you can watch as Stephen shows the nation how he better feels the facts, better justifies injustices, and better knows the districts. So, look up in the sky, above the fruited plain, across the purple mountain majesties. This…is The Colbert Report.

Just the Basics, No Extras Nov 07, 2007
By Courtney Mehlhaff
If you're a dedicated viewer of the Report, you might find yourself a bit disappointed with this DVD. While it does feature some of the major highlights of the past couple years, there is so much missing: no gag reel, no behind-the-scenes, no sign of segments like Tip of the Hat, Who's Honoring Me Now, Alpha Dog of the Week, Cheating Death, Bears and Balls, the Atone Phone, etc. The disc features only one Threatdown and two Words. The Report is a big show packed with hilarity, and often it's the little things (character breaks, malfunctions, random absurdity) that truly make it great. Comedy Central would do well in the future to include some montages that capture more of TCR's daily wit instead of presenting only the biggest events as an uninspired overview.

Big let down (post-release review) Nov 06, 2007
I have to agree with those who have reviewed this DVD now it has been released. I found it a big disappointment, sloppily put together, arguably not even the best bits of the show thus far. Some of the "Better know a district" segments didn't even have the lead in, just jumped straight to the interview (e.g. John Hall). No doubt that the show is one of the funniest things on TV, and I'm a huge Colbert fan, but this DVD was very, very disappointing.

Not really the best of Jan 25, 2008
By A. Pierre
I love the Colbert Report and was very happy a release of the best of clips dvd. I got the dvd and thought the set up of the dvd was big disappointment. The menu is basic scroll of clips and thats about it, well previews of other Comedy Central releases. Its not really the best of the show. Poor selection of clips, whoever picked them. The only saving grace for the dvd is the Better Know a District segements, which is one of the funniest segements in any variety/news show. Still I recommend it to Colbert fans because they love him no matter what.

Good for laughs Oct 13, 2008
By Just Older
Colbert is a favorite of mine and while I'm not sure these are "the best" clips from the show, the dvd is sure to entertain.
