The Palmetto Scoop is reporting:

Sources with the South Carolina Democratic Party tell us that comedian Stephen Colbert, who formally filed Thursday to have his name placed on the presidential primary ballot, has been denied. The decision came from the party’s executive committee and means that Colbert’s name will not be on the Jan. 26 Democratic primary ballot in South Carolina.
