Stephen Colbert will replace David Letterman on 'The Late Show'

CBS took little time in naming a replacement for David Letterman as host "The Late Show." A week after Letterman announced his retirement, CBS named Stephen Colbert as his replacement. “Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career,” Colbert said in a statement. He added: “I’m thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth.”
