NEW YORK (WFSB) -

Stephen Colbert has seen a resurgence in the ratings and it's for sketches like the one that aired on Wednesday night.

The Late Show with Stephen Colbert host mocked MSNBC host Rachel Maddow during a cold open.

Tuesday night, Maddow unveiled a couple of tax forms from President Donald Trump.

However, she took nearly 20 minutes on her show to actually reveal the contents.

Colbert shaved that down to about 2 and a half minutes for his sketch.

He teased an exclusive joke about Trump. He kept delaying the punchline for "why did the chicken cross the road?"

He segued into a preamble about chickens and roads before finally ending the sketch with "Why did the chicken cross the road? The answer after this break."
