*Sorry Tracy Morgan. We know you want the Letterman gig, but according to Reuters, CBS has chosen a replacement and it’s not you. (oh well).
So just who have they chosen, you ask? That would be Stephen Colbert.
CBS said on Thursday that Colbert will become the host of ‘The Late Show’ when David Letterman retires next year.
Colbert, who hosts “The Colbert Report” on the cable channel Comedy Central, signed a five-year agreement with the network, CBS’ CEO Les Moonves said in a statement.
The location of the show will be determined at a later date, the network said.
