The NPR quiz show Wait, Wait…Don’t Tell Me! had a seriously-impressive guest lined up for this week’s ‘Not My Job’ segment. They don’t say who, but give enough hints that makes it hilariously obvious. And yes, it would have been impressive. But no doubt because of the news these days, the guest had to cancel. So, instead, host Peter Sagal called their back-up at home – Stephen Colbert. And not surprisingly, it’s absolutely wonderful. Making it fun, too, is that Colbert plays the quiz with the same questions they had planned for their planned guest (something they’d done once before with Colbert when he filled in for another guest who cancelled that time, as well). Today, they call the game – “The Sneaker of the House.” Perhaps you can figure out who the planned guest was supposed to have been, and why that person had to cancel…
