Once again, people, this is rumor control.
1) Chapelle did not go on hiatus -- he had a nervous breakdown and fled to South Africa to meditate, and then decided he isn't coming back.
2) The skit is a spoof -- Sarah Silverman is not going to guest-host the Chapelle Show (though the idea would be totally friggin` hilarious).
3) Even though it`s a skit, how did they manage to say "Comedy Central" so many times on ABC? Well, how `bout because ABC *OWNS* Comedy Central, along with ESPN and about a dozen other cable channels. kee-RIST, don`t you kids know anything these days?
