    Can you imagine Limbaugh on the late show? on Comedy Central? OMG!

    Maybe this question has been answered, but does anyone know if he is going to be himself, or the character he plays on Comedy Central?

    I couldn't find a picture of Limbaugh on Comedy Central, so I suppose this is more likely.

    That would be a great thing for us liberals...because the more sane people that hear Limbaugh, the more liberals and Democrats there will be.

    Re: CBS names Colbert as Letterman replacement

    I love Steven Colbert and like others, I'm sorry to see him end his own show.

    I'm also sorry Letterman is retiring, because frankly I really like the guy. Nobody can bring out the comic genius of his guests like Letterman, with his facial expressions, self-deprecating gestures, he plays the part of straight-man to make his guests (those who have a personality beyond that of soggy cornflakes) look truly excellent. Those who are stoned, drunk or just plain lousy, Dave can put in their place with a smirk and a sharp-witted quip.

    Personally, I don't think I've ever loved anything as much as watching Letterman, who is scared to death of animals, host Jack Hanna's menagerie. Watching Dave's expression when Hanna plops something with fangs and claws on Dave's desk is comedy gold. I will truly miss that.

    I hope Colbert does well and surpasses expectations. He's a brilliant comic with a razor-sharp wit, and whatever he brings to the new Late Night Show will no doubt be incredibly interesting.

    I think CBS should hire Leno for Lettermans spot.

    That would be funny.

    It will be interesting to see which company is more restrictive of true 'free speech', Viacom or CBS.

    I'm looking forward to the change, but will certainly miss The Report.

    I doubt he will continue that shtick. He's musically talented too. I would expect he gives Fallon some good competition.
