Call it life imitating art -- imitating life. Comedy Central star Stephen Colbert, who patterned much of his on-air alter ego on outspoken cable pundits such as Bill O'Reilly, is going to come face to face with his muse next week when he and O'Reilly visit each other's shows. On Jan. 18, Colbert is set to appear on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor." Later that night, O'Reilly will be a guest on "The Colbert Report."

Activist groups dropped a federal lawsuit against Viacom Inc. on Monday after the parent of Comedy Central acknowledged it made a mistake in asking YouTube to yank a parody of the cable network's "The Colbert Report." Although the video in question contained clips taken from the television show, the groups argued that their use was protected under "fair use" provisions of copyright law, and thus Viacom shouldn't have asked YouTube to remove the item.

COMEDY Central's move to extend its late-night franchise appears to be working -- at least based on early results. After its first two weeks on Comedy Central, Stephen Colbert's mock interview show, "The Colbert Report," has received an extended one-year contract from its initial eight-week run. Airing at 11:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, "The Colbert Report" follows "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" and currently averages 1.2 million viewers.
