We've already answered many of your burning Emmys questions, but one remains: Why hasn't "Colbort Report" become the new "Adele Dazeem"?

For the unfamiliar: On Monday night's Emmys, Gwen Stefani and PEOPLE's current Sexiest Man Alive Adam Levine were presenting the award for Outstanding Variety Series when Stefani mistakenly announced the name of the eventual winner as "The Colbort Report."

Don't believe us? Watch the Vine below, courtesy of Uproxx. Come for Stefani's mispronunciation, stay for Levine's embarrassed grin.





Did Stefani forget which parts of The Colbert Report were supposed to rhyme? (The final T is meant to be silent in each word.) Or had she simply never heard of the show before? It's possible – though she's played the Late Show, Colbert's new gig three times – the No Doubt singer has never appeared on The Colbert Report.

Whatever the reason, it's past time for somebody to invent the Colbort Report Name Generator. Think of the possibilities – Late-Night with Seth Mite! The Tonight Shallon Starring Jallon Fallon! FX's groundbreaking comedy series Louis! Get on it, somebody.
