Obama set to visit "The Colbert Report"

President Obama will be on hand next week as Stephen Colbert begins his final two weeks as the fake cable news bloviator on "The Colbert Report," Comedy Central announced Friday.

Mr. Obama is scheduled to appear on Monday, Dec. 8, during Colbert's one-day visit to Washington, which he's calling the "Stephen Colbert Presents: Mr. Colbert Goes to Washington D.C. Ya Later, Legislator: Partisan is Such Sweet Sorrow: A Colbert Victory Lap, '014."

It will be Mr. Obama's third visit to the show, his second as president, and his first live. The first two were pre-taped contributions.

Colbert is taking over for David Letterman on CBS' "Late Show" next year. His last appearance in character on Comedy Central will be on Dec. 18.
