Stephen Colbert To Replace David Letterman As ‘Late Show’ Host; ‘The Colbert Report’ To End
  |  @   |  

Recently Jay Leno stepped down as the host of The Tonight Show and was replaced by Jimmy Fallon. Even more recently, Late Show host and longtime Leno rival David Letterman also announced that he would be retiring in 2015, effectively ending an era of late night TV many of us have known for most of our lives whether we watched the shows or not.

So of course the big question on everyone’s mind was who would be chosen to replace Letterman? Would it be Craig Ferguson from within CBS similarly to how NBC brought up Fallon? As it turns out, no.
