Bill O'Reilly never made it back on air after his Italian vacation. "And you, his audience, responded in record numbers, making The Factor the No. 1 cable news show for more than 16 years", she said.
The real Colbert, who has hosted The Late Show since September 2015, was a little harder on O'Reilly and his hard-lined views.
Perino was forced to praise the alleged serial harasser in a tribute of sorts, which marked "the end of an era here at the Fox News Channel".
And he keeps echoing in the broader media landscape. Once again, some of the allegations against O'Reilly were years ago, why did Fox News just now decide to cut him loose? "Everything that we said in our statement is all you need to know".

That multiplying effect gave O'Reilly a role in a seismic change, he said. Concern over whether Fox broke the law by failing to disclose its settlements to investors is more likely to impact approval than whether the company is mired in sexual misconduct allegations, said Claire Enders of Enders Analysis, who has studied the Murdoch empire for years.
O'Reilly wasn't just a profitable host, he was the network's cash cow, generating a whopping $446 million in advertising from 2014 through 2016, according to Kantar Media. He has denied any wrongdoing.
One of Bill O'Reilly's accusers says she felt triumphant when the Fox News Channel host was sacked following an investigation into claims of harassment by women. She left the network shortly after she made remarks that appeared to defend Josh Duggar in the midst of his molestation scandal - and was critical of Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly's interview with him. "You know what I hate about people who criticize you?"
Shares were up 30 cents to $30.69 shortly after the market opened.
O'Reilly lost his job on the same day he was photographed in Rome shaking the hand of Pope Francis. The TV personality has maintained his innocence, saying in a statement that "it is tremendously disheartening that we part ways due to completely unfounded claims". Similar sexual harassment accusations led to the ouster of Fox News chief Roger Ailes in 2016. O'Reilly's attorney countered that his client was the victim of a campaign to smear his character.
Now, the top ratings for O'Reilly's time slot - and Fox's other prime-time shows - could be at risk.
O'Reilly had ruled the "no spin zone" on television with a quick smile and an even quicker temper.
In September, Ailes used a trust to pay $36 million for a new beachfront house at 6 Ocean Lane after leaving the network with a settlement reported to be more than $40 million.
