Sources tell People that Colbert was concerned about the health of his 91-year-old mother, and the host tweeted, "My family and I would like to thank everyone who has offered their thoughts and prayers. We are grateful and touched by your concern."

Guests this week include minority leader of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi, Parnassus Books owner Ann Patchett, author Robert Kagan and opera star Placido Domingo.
