After a month off the air, Stephen Colbert (the real one, not the character) now knows when his new show will save America from Colbert Report withdrawals. CBS will premiere Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Sep. 8 this year. We already knew that David Letterman will exit Late Show on May 20 after nearly 22 years. CBS chairman Nina Tassler announced that Stephen has until the Fall to get things ready. “I have nine months to make a show, just like a baby. So first, I should find out how you make a baby,” said Colbert. Letterman’s sudden retirement announcement last April shook up the late night talk show world, starting a game of musical host chairs. As we see Colbert start up on Late Show, we’ll get a chance to see new host James Corden take over Late Late Show for Craig Ferguson and Comedy Central series The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. Still, Colbert’s arrival at CBS will be the most highly-anticipated television event in late night in 2015 aside from David Letterman’s sendoff. CBS is currently in talks with Letterman about special programming leading up to his departure, which could potentially mean one ore two primetime variety specials. We continue to get closer and closer to the new wave of late night television and it couldn’t be more exciting. Well, maybe only if Jon Stewart on Comedy Central told us to stay tuned for Stephen Colbert on Late Show.
