CBS officially announced today that Stephen Colbert will be taking over The Late Show when David Letterman retires in 2015. Colbert will retire his Stephen Colbert "character," a satirical take on a conservative pundit, and host the show as himself. CBS mogul Les Moonves released a statement about the move, saying:
Stephen Colbert is one of the most inventive and respected forces on television. David Letterman’s legacy and accomplishments are an incredible source of pride for all of us here, and today’s announcement speaks to our commitment of upholding what he established for CBS in late night.
Stephen Colbert released a statement saying:
Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career. I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead.
And Comedy Central released a statement saying:
[We are] proud that the incredibly talented Stephen Colbert has been part of our family for nearly two decades. We look forward to the next eight months of the groundbreaking ‘Colbert Report’ and wish Stephen the very best.
Jesus Christ, everyone's releasing a fucking statement:
The Outhouse would like to congratulate Stephen Colbert on scoring this gig, which he well deserves. We're proud to see a satirist get the recognition he deserves, and we'd like to toss Outhouse Ace Reporter and decommissioned supervillain vehicle ThanosCopter's name into the running to take over the Colbert Report when Colbert leaves. They can rename it the Copter Report.
