Well, I guess it isn’t much of a surprise. Stephen Colbert has been announced as the official replacement as host of CBS’s Late Show. And also unsurprisingly, he’s not bringing his Comedy Central “Stephen Colbert” with him, which begs the question: Does anyone know what the real Stephen Colbert is like anymore?
Earlier this week, David Letterman announced that he would be retiring in 2015 after decades as a talk show host. It had been rumored that John Oliver might replace Letterman, but that idea was shot down, as were rumors that it might be Craig Ferguson. Now, it looks fairly certain that Stephen Colbert may be CBS’s top pick, and Colbert has indicated he would absolutely take over Late Night.

So Stephen Colbert was down in New Zealand for just a day or two last year, just ya know… happened to be in town, checking out the filming of The Hobbit. Ya know, just for the hell of it, and it has nothing to do with a possible Colbert cameo in the film. No, not at all.
As if acknowledging that perhaps he was in on the joke the whole time, former GOP presidential contender Herman Cain will be joining Stephen Colbert for a joint Colbert/Cain rally on the campus of the College of Charleston tomorrow at 1pm.
