This you know: Stephen Colbert, sans schtick, will be taking over for David Letterman on the Late Show. So how would Colbert go about announcing this on his regularly scheduled Comedy Central show? With typical jest and zest.
Colbert’s run-in buddy Jon Stewart also paid tribute to both men on The Daily Show earlier in the evening. He praised Letterman as the best there ever was and gave his old reporter a big hand for filling the seat. Quality.
