Unlike most things, the Peabody award for Colbert Super PAC segments isn't just about Stephen. (3:02)

>> Stephen: THANK YOU SO MUCH.

(AUDIENCE CHANTING "STEPHEN")

>> Stephen: THANK YOU SO MUCH!

WELCOME TO THE "REPORT." GOOD TO HAVE YOU WITH US.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) HELLO TO YOU, HELLO TO EVERYBODY IN HERE.

HELLO TO ALL MY VIEWERS IN CEDAR BORROW NEW YOUSY.

(LAUGHTER) NATION, I DON'T LIKE TO BRAG, IT GETS IN THE WAY OF MY BOASTING.

BUT TODAY I AM PROUD TO BOAST THAT I HAVE SOMETHING NEW TO BRAG ABOUT.

>> THE "COLBERT REPORT" THE SUPER PAC SEGMENT RECEIVES A PEABODY AWARD.

>> Stephen: WE WON A PEABODY!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) WHOO!

WHOO!

WHOO!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) FOLKS, THANK YOU.

I AM SO HAPPY TO FINALLY HAVE A SECOND ONE.

NOW MY PEABODYS AND MY EMMY CANS DOUBLE DATE.

FOLKS, THIS HIGHLY PRESTIGIOUS AWARD IS BESTOWED ON THE GREATEST SHOWS IN RADIO AND

TELEVISION AND IT'S MY FAVORITE AWARD TO WIN BECAUSE IT IS DETERMINED BY ONE CRITERION: EXCELLENCE!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) BUT UNLIKE MOST THINGS, THIS ISN'T JUST ABOUT ME.

I WANT TO THANK EVERYONE ON THE SHOW FOR ALL THEIR HARD WORK AND THE STAFF OF MY SUPER PAC WHO,

THANKS TO THE F.E.C. RULES, ARE ALLOWED TO BE THE SAME PEOPLE.

(LAUGHTER) AND A HUGE SHOUTOUT TO MY SUPER PAC ADVISORS TREVOR POTTER AND HAM ROVE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE) HAM, JUST FOR THIS YOU ARE GOING TO SURVIVE ANOTHER EASTER DINNER

TREVOR, NO PROMISES.

AND I SHARE THIS AWARD WITH THE MEMBERS OF THE SUPREME COURT WHOSE CITIZENS UNITED RULING

MADE IT POSSIBLE.

JUST AS CNN COULD NOT HAVE WON THEIR PEABODY FOR THEIR COVERAGE OF EGYPT WITHOUT THE BRUTAL

REGIME OF HOSNI MUBARAK.

(LAUGHTER) YOU GUYS ARE THE REAL HEROES.

MOST IMPORTANTLY, THIS AWARD IS THANKS TO EVERYONE OF YOU IN THE NATION WHO DONATED TO COLBERT

SUPER PAC.

HEROES LIKE HARRY BALSAC.
