Stephen Colbert Is Taking Over For David Letterman

Apr 10 2014 - 9:12am

Stephen Colbert [1] is moving on from Comedy Central . . . and over to CBS. The master of late-night politics is taking over for David Letterman [2], who recently announced he would be retiring in 2015 [3]. Colbert has signed a five-year deal with CBS and will host the show as himself [4] and not his well-known Colbert Report persona. We know Colbert has a steady following of young people (and some Emmys to prove his skills), but is he right for Late Show? What's your take?
