Colbert's 'Late Show' Run Begins in September, So Please Enjoy Three Months of Old 'NCIS' or Whatever

January 12, 2015


CBS has revealed when Stephen Colbert can finally start actually acting like himself on television. September 8--soon to be stylized "Septembert" in promos, knowing the network's crack marketing team--is when Colbert will finally take the reigns of The Late Show from David Letterman.

That's nine months from now--Colbert reportedly remarked, "Just like a baby. So first, I should find out how you make a baby"--but more notably, that's several months after Letterman's May 20 retirement. But don't worry, everyone, because CBS has a plan for the lengthy interim: primetime reruns! Truly, there is no humorless gap that can't be filled with Big Bang Theory's ceaseless laugh track.
