After announcing his retirement from late night on April 3rd, speculation began on who would replace David Letterman on the Late Show in 2015. Today, CBS announced that Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert would indeed be that replacement.

   CBS has made a five-year deal with Colbert, which was announced Thursday by CBS Corp. CEO Les Moonves and CBS Entertainment chairman Nina Tassler.

“Stephen Colbert is one of the most inventive and respected forces on television,”  Moonves said. “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.”

 

So, thoughts? Is he your pick or would you have preferred someone else?
