Fans of The Colbert Report have undoubtedly been experiencing a harsher winter than most, without Stephen Colbert’s large right wings keeping us warm and toasty. While Colbert’s conservative edge is getting rounded out by his transition from Comedy Central to CBS’ The Late Show, he’ll still be a stellar addition to the late night line-up. CBS has decided Tuesday, September 8 will be his first night behind the Late Show desk. Just in time for International Literacy Day.
The news was announced today by CBS Entertainment Chairman Nina Tassler. Of course, Colbert had a more colorful way of putting it, according to the press release.
