Colbert to replace Letterman
April 11 , 2014
Looks like the rumors were true and Stephen Colbert will be replacing David Letterman on The Late Show after Letterman's retirement in 2015.
It's not clear as to when Colbert will start but he does have a five-year-deal with the network.
"Simply being a guest on David Letterman's show has been a highlight of my career," Colbert said. "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."
