Viacom Forbid Stephen Colbert from Bringing Back “Stephen Colbert,” So He Got His Identical Cousin

Apparently, Viacom was not pleased that Stephen Colbert brought back “Stephen Colbert” and his famous segment “The Word” last week during their live RNC shows, so they sent their lawyers after him. In response, in last night’s live DNC show, Colbert introduced “Stephen Colbert’s” identical cousin, “Stephen Colbert,” and then debuted his new segment, “The Werd.” Intellectual property law sure is confusing!
