A Colbert Report on Letterman Succession

UPDATE:  NYT adds credence to Colbert leading field.  Who would have thought Stephen had timed his Comedy Central contracts to Letterman's?


Mashable claims Stephen is CBS's top choice to succeed Dave (forget the lobbying for a woman) and that Colbert is "into it."  But no confirmation of any sort so don't bank on it. "Colbert's contract to host The Colbert Report on Comedy Central runs through the end of 2014, which would free him up in time to move over to CBS when Letterman ends his 33-year run in late-night TV. Letterman left the exact date of his departure vague while announcing his retirement plans on Thursday."

Well, it would make some sense as Stephen surely is ready to move on from his aging faux Fox blowhard persona, which caused him a bit of trouble in the past week or so.
