My Conspiracy: Colbert, Stewart, Studio 60, and Ze

File under: "Pop Culture Conspiracy Theories." I wonder if the most recent episode of Studio 60 -- the one that revolves around an act of comedic tv/internet plagiarism (and which has probably been the best hour of tv this fall) -- was inspired by the recent act of unverified tv/internet plagiarism in which The Colbert Report had a few lines that appeared to rip off Ze Frank. Maybe that sounds like a crazy theory -- until you read in the long NY Mag Colbert profile that Jon Stewart's brother is now a writer for Studio 60. Hmmm....


Actually when I saw this episode -- the first thing I thought of was your posts about Colbert + Ze Frank. Your "black helicopters" mentality is twisting my mind!!!! :-)

So, I published a story on the Morning News, based loosely on Borges and I, and that week the SNL digital short was Doppelganger. Not that Doppelganer is an original idea or anything. I'm just saying...

Isn't Rob Cordrey's brother on that show as well?
