Stephen Colbert10. CBS announced today Stephen Colbert will take over hosting duties of The Late Show for David Letterman on September 8, 2015

9. It’s still unclear what Colbert’s take on late night will be, but rumors are he’s going to make it more of a variety show

8. Colbert will follow primetime dramas Scorpion, NCIS: New Orleans, and Madam Secretary, all of which CBS has renewed for second seasons today

7. Colbert will not be followed by Craig Ferguson, who ironically ended his stint on The Late Late Show the same week The Colbert Report ended

6. Colbert’s spot will now be filled by The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, originally titled The Minority Report. The Nightly Show premieres next Monday, January 19

5. English actor, comedian and writer James Corden will take over The Late Late Show on March 23, 2014. Ironically, his hiring was announced a year before Colbert’s premiere date—September 8, 2014

4. Before Corden officially takes over, The Late Late Show is being guest hosted by a wide variety of celebrities—including Judd Apatow, Wayne Brady, Drew Carey, Kunal Nayyar, and Jim Gaffigan

3. Jay Leno is happily retired and Conan O’Brien’s job is still safe

2. David Letterman will have his last Late Show on May 20, 2015, ending an era for late night talk shows

1. Colbert is not expected to do any Top Ten lists, probably because they would seem lazy and anyone making a Top Ten list would just look like they were ripping off the great David Letterman
