Charlie Sheen warned us; being on Charlie Sheen isn't for everyone.

After 48 hours of ODing on our new favorite drug, it seems like Americans are beginning to run out of steam. And for some former newsmakers, like Muammar Gaddafi, our collective post-traumatic-Charlie-Sheen disorder offers an opportunity to take back the spotlight.

Stephen Colbert illustrated the point by chiding CBS News for missing the boat on the Sheen story. While every other news outlet lead with its "exclusive" interview with the troubled star, CBS News focused instead on Christiane Amanpour's actually exclusive interview with the Libyan dictator. But the seasoned international journalist was in for an even more jaw-dropping conversation than she expected.
