Things went about as well as you'd expect (see: previous attempts), but I'll repeat what I've said in almost every Colbert-related Olympic post: what he's doing by covering the Olympics -- and sponsoring the speedskating team -- is freaking fantastic for not only national morale (or something) but for boosting interest in the Winter Olympics. It's easy to forget that those who choose to live on ice are people too. But they are, dammit. They are.
