Rock Band 2 on Colbert Tonight

The circle is completed as Viacom's many tentacles touch each other on television tonight, resulting in a warm, but somehow unsettling feeling.

A renowned flag-biter.
In what can only be called an "I called it" or a "well, duh" moment, Harmonix reps have confirmed on their message boards that Rock Band 2 will be appearing on tonight's episode of The Colbert Report.

This move closes the circle that started with the original game appearing on the show in some backstage segments, and moved on to a song from Colbert appearing as a free download last week.

Check your local listings, y'all.

I just want to see Cliffy B on that show, then I will watch no matter what.

I will watch no matter what.  I always watch no matter what.  I love America.

Dude, Alex on The Colbert Report would be awesome. Though not likely.

Alex eats Cliffy B for breakfast.

I thought this week was a hiatus... I need to slap my torrent feed around a bit with a large trout and wake it up.

Should be fun to watch. I love that show...

Hey, it's Young Clifford now, respect.

Maybe he'll perform his hit song "Charlene [I'm Right Behind You]".

I'm part of the Colbert Nation so I'll definately gonna catch this.

Jeff called it!  Woooo, woooo!! (get it?)

Dude, what the hell? He didn't even perform the song and there was no people from Harmonix there. He just did a plug for the song at the end of the show. Lame.

They'll probably be playing Charlene by Stephen and the Colberts! AHA!

Too bad, he didn't actually play the game on he show. Stephen just advertized it and showed a clip of "Charlene".

Smart to point out the Viacom connection.  I'm not surprised, but I'm not sure how they can justify putting it in :)
