This is from the No Fact Zone, a tribute site to Stephen Colbert and The Colbert Report. The remark was hilarious and the reaction was expected. However, do the math on the time of the peak (below) and you have to wonder if they are making this up.

Did you ever wonder just *how* much a mention on The Colbert Report is worth? We can’t provide any specific numbers for this data, but consider this: Last night, during the 11:30 p.m. Eastern broadcast of his show, Stephen made a casual reference to ShirtlessHunks-BaggingGroceries.com. Guess what ranked fourth in overall Google searches yesterday?

I don’t know about you, but I find this absolutely hilarious. Never underestimate the power of a Colbert Report endorsement!

    That’s around the time of the 8:00p EST rerun. So that could have influenced it. 🙂 Thanks for the link love!
