Colbert doesn't envy Letterman's replacement
April 14 , 2014
David Letterman is retiring from his show in 2015 and Stephen Colbert mentioned during the Colbert Report that he doesn't "envy whoever they try to put in that chair" since "those are some huge shoes to fill - and some really big pants."
It is, however, Colbert who is expected to fill those shoes and his show will end after his transition to CBS next year.
"Truly, one of the great pleasures of doing this show has been trying to maintain professional composure whilst Mr. Colbert is making is laugh uncontrollably," Jon Stewart said, while praising Colbert's move.
