Could Colbert replace Letterman?

  • Everyone is wondering who Letterman will be replaced with after he steps down in 2015. According to Mashable, it could be Stephen Colbert since he is the top choice of the network and he seems to be interested. 

    Colbert's contract with Comedy Central finishes at the end of this year so the timing is quite perfect. 

    Philip Maciak of Slate is, however, making a case for Ellen DeGeneres. "She belongs to - maybe even pioneered - this new generation of hosts who don't care what time it is," he writes.
