Stephen Colbert may be hilarious, but there's nothing funny about his dedication to his nearest and dearest.

The Emmy (and Grammy, he's happy to remind us) winner unexpectedly suspended production on The Colbert Report yesterday, and the Wall Street Journal was first to report that the "unforeseen circumstances" that prompted the hiatus were actually a family emergency.
