Stephen Colbert Finally Mentions Jimmy Fallon, Sort Of

Last week, we speculated that Stephen Colbert might appear on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon while Jimmy was interviewing President Obama at the University of North Carolina.  The two had been best friends for six months, and then eternal enemies for six months, all which ended on the much hyped date of March 3.  Surprisingly, nothing happened on that date, nor any date since then.  Neither talk show host even mentioned the other during the past almost 2 months, that was until this past Thursday's Colbert Report, when Colbert discussed the backlash President Obama faced for appearing on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.  But aside from jokingly referring to Late Night as "The Jimmy Fallon Giggle Time News Hour", there were really no references to the two being enemies, friends, or anything at all.  He treated Obama's appearance on Jimmy's show the same as if he had appeared on Letterman or Leno.  Did the two decide that the ongoing bit about them being friends/enemies had run its course and it was time to just forget about it?  Or are they planning some big bit to air some time in the future? (Remember, it wasn't until a few weeks after their best friendship for six months ended that they "realized" that the six months had expired and that they were no longer best friends.)  Only time will tell.

In the meantime, here's the clip of Stephen Colbert talking about President Obama's appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
