Wednesday's "Colbert" calls attention to a new study authored by a Columbia University statistician that claims the New York City rat population is far lower than people commonly believe. The population was thought to be around eight million, but as this study shows, it's probably closer to a PITIFUL two million.
And that doesn't sit well with Colbert, who believes NYC has a rat reputation to uphold. Check out his rant in the clip up top. Seriously, come on, rats! Step it up! Two million rats? Those are Chicago numbers!
