TV host Stephen Colbert resumed taping "The Colbert Report" on Monday following the abrupt cancellation of two episodes last week.
According to CBS News.com, Colbert did not clearly state his reason for stopping the show's production, but he inadvertently mentioned that it was because of his 91-year-old mother's ailing health.
"Evidently, having 11 children makes you tough as nails," said Colbert on Monday, who at 47 is the youngest among his siblings.
After finishing third at the box office on Friday, "Safe House" did well on Saturday and edged past "The Vow" and "Ghost Rider" to claim the first place spot for the first three days of Presidents' Day weekend.

Political satirist Stephen Colbert comes in at No. 4 in "Extra's" Entertainer of the Year poll.
Surprising? Not really. Since the comedian took his "The Daily Show" persona and created his own Comedy Central show "The Colbert Report" in 2005, his particular slant on today's political scene has been a hit, mixing comedy with politics.
This year has been an especially hilarious one for the bombastic host, in which he has skewered everything from the oil spill, to the environment, Obama birthers, Bill O'Reilly and Congress. Plus, he spearheaded the groundbreaking Restore Sanity and/or Fear rally with his "nemesis," Jon Stewart.
