This is big. Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert reached the top of the mountain. He will be filling David Letterman's shoes in the Late Show on CBS.
Last week David Letterman announced that he will be retiring as host of the Late Show after 21 years in 2015. Today CBS announced that Stephen Colbert will be the new host of the Late Show.
CBS and Stephen Colbert signed a 5-year contract. This is another big step for Colbert. He started out on the Daily Show with Jon Stewart. Then he got his own satire show on Comedy Central with the Colbert report. Next he will be one of the late night show hosts on a major channel. Will he become a legend like Letterman or Leno?
“Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career,” said Colbert. “I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead.”
Adding, “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.”
The Late Show is broadcast weeknights on the CBS Television Network from 11:35 PM - 12:37 AM, ET/PT.
