STEPHEN COLBERT SHOCKER in the "National Enquirer" (Sort of) (VIDEO)

STEPHEN COLBERT SHOCKER in the 'National Enquirer' (Sort of)What does it take to get into a scandalous tabloid magazine? Or, in other words, how does one end up in the pages of the "National Enquirer"? That's the question on the current 'Colbert Report' (weeknights, 11:30PM ET on Comedy Central).

Stephen interviews Barry Levine -- Executive Editor of the "Enquirer." This is the cheap magazine that you see in your supermarket check-out aisle, filled with tawdry stories about Lindsay Lohan and Mel Gibson and every other celebrity like that.

Mr. Colbert is outraged that he hasn't been on the cover of the magazine yet. "What do I have to do ... to make it onto the cover? ... Who do I have to sleep with?" he asks.

By way of compensation, Mr. Levine presents Colbert with a fake personalized issue of the tabloid. "STEPHEN COLBERT SHOCKER!" it says. Good stuff; but maybe someday we can get an actual scandal about Stephen. Maybe he could go on a drug binge, or get in a feud with Jon Stewart, or something like that. Of course, these are just suggestions. An actual Colbert scandal could be much cooler than these hypotheticals.
