After Letterman retires.
http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/envelope/cotown/la-et-ct-stephen-colbert-host-late-show-letterman-20140410,0,3156075.story#axzz2yVPusdY2

Any thoughts? I love Colbert, but he's always in character / in satire mode on his show. Not sure what he'll be like just being a normal host. Also I'm kind of disappointed since I love watching Stewart/Colbert but I never watch any of those late night talk shows.

At least there's still a year left.

I think I am sad. Colbert is so great, and I feel like he is going to be wasting his time interviewing random dumbass actors and whatnot.

I don't much care because Craigy Ferg is the only thing that matters


Colbert isn't that funny when he isn't doing satire IMO, but he has great writers so we will see. I can't see it being any worse than Fallon.

I'm honestly kind of devastated by this news. Jon Stewart and Colbert are two of my favorite people in the world. Despite being comedy shows, they are just about as honest as a newscaster could possibly be (after translating the satire, of course) and I feel like they both do truly tremendous things for the world by their shows existing, and I feel like Colbert's talents are wasted leaving satirical journalism for a talk show.

Making fun of conservatives is like really easy though. I wanna see Colbert do something else and see if he can do it.

damn letterman was the only comedian that actually made me laugh

That's probably a big reason CBS were looking at him. Gotta compete with Fallon and Colbert is also young and hip and musically talented and good at marketing.

Can't believe people don't like Fallon, he's brilliant. Didn't like him at first but he's completely won me over the last few years. So much good stuff.

I can only watch so much Craig, I go through phases where I watch him every night for a month, then not at all for a year. Fallon has never made me laugh in my life (and Leno only did a few times), so I could care less. Colbert will do a good job and be classy about it, and I hope he doesn't have a Paul Schafer equivalent busting in and making unfunny jokes all the time. That's what killed Letterman for me.

Not too much a fan of his scripted stuff either but I just love his guest segments, his enthusiasm is infectious.

He's gone from never hosting an hour show to hosting an hour show. It takes time to build a show.

I wasn't talking about that, just his set design. It's atrocious and it makes me uneasy watching the show.

Letterman is like a dude playing a creepy old man character, but the secret is that he's not actually acting.
#36
Conan is easily the best talk show host out there right now. Fallon is funny though, I don't see how so many people don't like him.

I think Meyers has potential though. Like lolmnt said, he needs some time to get used to what he's doing.

Fine with this. Opens a slot on Comedy Central for The Chris Gethard Show.

Or they might bump @midnight up and put Chris Gerhard at midnight, cuz that makes more sense.

no one really sees him as old though. His target audience is fairly young

probably because he's not trying to be clever. It's just his personality, lol

Credit where it's due, #CancelColbert was dumb as balls, but it does give them an absolutely perfect way to end The Colbert Report in-character.
