Hun­dreds of thou­sands of West Vir­gin­ia res­id­ents are left thirst­ing for clean wa­ter after a chem­ic­al spill in the Elk River oc­curred up­stream of a loc­al wa­ter treat­ment plant. People were ad­vised not to drink, cook with, or bathe in wa­ter from their taps.

But Steph­en Col­bert knows tragedy gold when he sees it. Cit­izens of the Ap­palachi­an vari­ety that can’t feed or bathe them­selves? Col­bert calls the rights to A&E‘s next real­ity show.

Plus, New Jer­sey Demo­crats try their darnd­est to oust Chris Christie from of­fice.
