I smell a hoax.
Isn’t Colbert as old as Letterman?
Doesn’t surprise me at all.
Mocking Republicans and Conservatives is his bread and butter. He is probably the only one who could pass muster with the gays at CBS.
>>>Good, bad, or indifferent?<<<
Good for Jimmy Fallon, and all the stations running reruns at 11:30.
I can’t see how this will not be one of the biggest flops in the history of television.
way to go cbs, from putz to yutz in one move.
Bad..... John Stewart would have been better.
Is there any practical difference between the two?
‘Haven’t watched Letterman since his first or second season on late night; have never seen Colbert except at the White House Correspondents Dinner when he was utterly tasteless attacking Pres. Bush (43). So why start watching now? Ain’t gonna happen.
They want the “hipster” audience anyway, not this old fogie.
Sounds like I still won’t have a reason to watch the Late Show...
CNS places new chimp on stage dull must be their idea of entertainment.
If true, CBS has guaranteed that the conservative bashing will continue unabated.
I never watched Letterman and certainly will not watch Colbert. Never have before so why start now? SeeBS is going from one jerk to an even more noxious one.
coming soon on SEEmoBS
Looking forward to not watching him either
I would assume he isn’t going to do the new show in his “Colbert Report” personna so it will be interesting to see if he succeeds. He has a loyal following but how much of that is due to his act?
I haven’t watched the Late Show in 20+ years and I won’t be watching it now so I could care less. Although I hope the Asian American PC activists protest so we get some amusement value from how CBS responds.
Neither of them are funny, but they are PC. It ought to work out well for CBS.
I’d say slightly worse than Letterman. They’re both communist mouthpieces, but Colbert is a good deal media-savvier than Letterman (online and out-of-studio stunts come to mind immediately), so he’d be more effective at pushing an agenda. His challenge will be doing this in front of a wider, presumably more middle-of-the-road audience.
Needless to say, I’m not thrilled. And Colbert may think he’s clever, but I think his act is old and tired. Hopefully most viewers will quickly come to the same conclusion.
I have never seen Colbert and have not watched Letterman for years so it’s a who cares for me.
