    Stephen Colbert sitting down for a chat with Radiohead is such an event that it requires extra time! This particular episode of The Colbert Report will be supersized to an hour-long! Hey, it's Radiohead and they command that kind of respect. The supersized ep of The Colbert Report will air on Sept. 26.

    Why is the ep a whole hour? Well, Thom Yorke and co. will perform four songs, featuring material off the band's most recent album, The King of Limbs, alongside the recently debuted and unreleased track "The Daily Mail." An additional song will also be performed for the online version of the show. Lots of content, from Radiohead, courtesy of The Colbert Report? Amazing! It cannot get any better than that.

    In a statement, the always hilarious Colbert said that "I look forward to meeting the Radioheads and leveraging their anti-corporate indie cred to raise brand awareness for my sponsors." Oh, Stephen!

    Will you tune into the Radiohead episode of The Colbert Report on Sept. 26?
