Current The Late Show host David Letterman has released a statement about his successor Stephen Colbert.

Stephen has always been a real friend to me. I’m very excited for him, and I’m flattered that CBS chose him. I also happen to know they wanted another guy with glasses,” the 66-year-old television personality said in a statement.

Stephen was just announced as the successor to the Late Night show after David Letterman announced his retirement in 2015.

No date for the takeover has been officially set by CBS – stay tuned!

    Yes for sure, I enjoy the Late Show. So relieved Chelsea Handler was snubbed. I guess she didn’t give enough bj’s to the right ppl.

    No talk show host is going to beat the J.Fallon/S.Meyers lineup. Colbert is too political and belongs on MSNBC, since he repeats their talking points.

  • Take the $ and Run

    Letterman wants out of NYC and the country. The mega wealthy are leaving in droves as they are clued in to what is coming to America in the very near future.

  • of no importance

    Used to love Colbert when he backhandedly skewered the Bush Administration with his wit and sarcasm. Unfortunately he seems to have lost the ability to poke fun at the Obama Administration, who is just as corrupt, if not more, with the same vigor making him a political pundit and a hypocrite and aDouche.

  • Truthiness!!

    HAHAHA NO CHELSEA!!! LOVE LOVE LOVE STEPHEN COLBERT!!! Go Stephen. So very happy for him. Luh him!! : ))) My only fav conservative that doesn’t see race!!LOL LOVE HIM!!!!!!

  • umm …Thruthiness!!

    Colbert is not a conservative. I see the whole act has gone right over your head. LOL

  • Truthiness!!

    @umm …Thruthiness!!: that’s why he’s my FAVORITE conservative, noting went over me head!! I also said he doesn’t see race which is all conservatives see disguised as something else!! Once again my favorite conservative!!! He’s my CILF!!!

  • @ Truthiness

    So confused. Liberals are the ones consumed with race. When a person is judged not by race but on the content of his character, thus his/her deeds, as Dr. King wanted, liberals scramble for the race card. Done out of some deep seated fear of “the other” (which is racist in itself ) or to take avantage ot the situation as we are now all seeing with Obama and his henchmen.

    Colbert is obviously some inspired wink wink masked man who is allowed to talk openly about all those liberal media crackpots who still believe that Obama was born in Hawaii, etc. Hence Comedy Central’s Mr. Wink was just shot by some symbolic Sheriff Joe Arizona figure.
