Ouch! Groopman dissed by Stephen Colbert

As Dr. Jerome Groopman is learning, the price of a book tour that includes an appearance on Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report" is unlimited razzing by the host. On Monday night, Stephen Colbert joked with his guest, the Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center doctor/writer, that while many doctors think they're God, the white-bearded Groopman looks like God.

Then at the start of tonight's show, after telling his audience that singer Willie Nelson would be the guest, Colbert quipped: "Sorry Jerome Groopman fans, you missed him by one day."
