Colbert Report Collides with Eagles Cheerleaders Finals 

Posted by James at 12:47 PM ET

Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert has announced that The Colbert Report with its 80 staffers will be heading to Philadelphia to cover the all-important Pennsylvania Democratic Primary. This marks the first time the show is broadcasting from a remote location. In the proud tradition of his Presidential Campaign, Colbert has once again courageously partnered with the first name in electoral snacking: Doritos.

"The Colbert Report: Dorito's Spicy Sweet Pennsylvania Primary Coverage From Chili-Delphia - The City Of Brotherly Crunch!" will be taped at the 900-seat The Annenberg Center for the Performing Art's Zellerbach Theatre on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania and will air nightly at 11:30 p.m. ET/PT from Monday, April 14 through Thursday, April 17.

Problem is the 2008 Philadelphia Eagles Cheerleaders were scheduled to hold their audition finals in the same theater on April 15th. The finals have been now been moved back to Wednesday, April 23rd and fans who have already purchased tickets should receive reprinted tickets with the new date in the mail.

The upside is this will give Eagles Cheerleaders hopefuls an extra 8 days to perfect their moves.
