    It doesn't matter much to me, but Colbert seems like a really strange choice. Good for him signing a five year contract - I hope his money is guaranteed since I have a feeling he'll never make it anywhere near five years.

    I think he'll do well, it's just every time I'll see him I'll be wishing that The Colbert Report was still on. No way that Late Night will be funnier than that. It might be more money, but creatively, it'll be a downturn.

    Interesting choice. Colbert has excellent delivery and great interviewing, but it's been "in-character" for so long that I wonder how it will work out in the Late Show format.

    The only Late night talk host I find funny is Conan O Brien. Leno was just background noise to old people screwing.

    Love Jon Steward and Stephen Colbert.

    This looks like a good choice, I hope CBS doesnt end up forcing him into their own agenda.

    O'Brian was ok but the skits he did were so low brow they were embarrassing to the human race. Even the actors...which are a dime a dozen on the NYC streets and desperate...looked embarrassed to be doing them. Very 'juvenile male, bathroom humor' stuff. No appeal IMO.

    I see his style being rooted in Vaudeville and slapstick, similar to the Young Ones. Which is exactly why I find him funny.

    I am not sure how funny Colbert can be now outside of his character.

    A host who isn't funny or relevant being replaced by a schmuck who has no broadbased appeal.


    Hmm... CBS trying to show that NBC isn't the only network that can't find a replacement for a late night show?
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.
