Stephen Colbert to Take Over Late Show on CBS; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of April 14, 2014)

Stephen Colbert and David Letterman

Late night TV will change a bit more in 2015. The CBS Television Network announced that Stephen Colbert, the host, writer and executive producer of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning The Colbert Report, will succeed David Letterman as the host of The Late Show, effective when Mr. Letterman retires from the broadcast. The five-year agreement between CBS and Colbert was announced by Leslie Moonves, President and CEO, CBS Corporation, and Nina Tassler, Chairman of CBS Entertainment. Letterman, the legendary, critically acclaimed host of the CBS late night series for 21 years, announced his retirement on his April 3 broadcast. Colbert's premiere date as host of The Late Show will be announced after Mr. Letterman determines a timetable for his final broadcasts in 2015. Specific creative elements, as well as the producers and the location for the Colbert-hosted The Late Show, will be determined and announced at a later date. The Late Show is broadcast weeknights on the CBS Television Network from 11:35 PM - 12:37 AM, ET/PT.
