  • Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman

    Source: CBS names Colbert as Letterman replacement


    CBS moved quickly to replace David Letterman after the late-night host announced his retirement last week. Confirming speculation, Stephen Colbert, of Comedy Central's Colbert Report, will take over the Late Show sometime next year.

    Colbert, whose current contract expires at year end, signed a five-year deal to host the show, which will begin when Letterman decides to step down when his contract expires in August 2015, though he could choose to leave earlier next year.

    "Simply being a guest on David Letterman's show has been a highlight of my career," Colbert said in a statement. "I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave's lead. I'm thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth."

    It looks like he'll be dropping his Bill O'Reilly parody character for the new gig.

    I find it impossible to visualize him out of character.
    "I am not angered that the Moral Majority boys campaign against abortion. I am angry when the same men who say, "Save OUR children" bellow "Build more and bigger bombers." That's right! Blast the children in other nations into eternity, or limbless misery as they lay crippled from "OUR" bombers! This does not jell." - Leonard Ravenhill

        That is television, right?

          Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

              Where am I going to get my white minstrel show now? Even Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly have more gravitas than this guy.

                  It will be the end of an era. Oh, and CBS's show will change a little too.

                  I wonder if there will be another Best of the Colbert Report out.

                    I am not a bigot. I am just not important enough for television.
