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

    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.

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

    Hmmmfff....didn't they do a guest host rotation for Johnny Carson way back when he announced his retirement?

    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.
