Two months ago, Stephen Colbert addressed Colbert Nation on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report and asked them to vote him a People’s Choice Award.

Lo and behold, it worked!

Colbert won the People’s Choice Award on Wednesday night’s telecast as Favorite Late-Night Talk Show Host.

Here he is, via remote, accepting his prize.

And last night, on The Colbert Report, the host with the most character thanked all of his Twitter-bots and their 140 characters for out-voting Jimmy Fallon’s Twitter Army.
