Who IS Watching the Watchdog? Stephen Colbert?

by Chris Bjorklund

If you’re a big fan of Consumer Reports magazine AND the Stephen Colbert show like I am, you’ll love these two hilarious segments. Colbert decides to investigate the testing process and labs at the magazine’s Yonkers, N.Y. headquarters in a 2-part series.

Part 1

Part 2

My favorite parts are when Colbert tries to test aluminum foil in microwaves and later when he starts tossing plates, soiled for dishwasher tests, at the lab technician. You’ll also see him in labs where cameras and sound systems are evaluated. I enjoyed seeing the people at Consumers Union, who are extremely serious about their work, have a little fun with the top-rated comedian.
