may be excited for his new gig, but “Stephen Colbert,” the pundit character he’ll drop once he takes over The Late Show
next year, couldn’t help but point out the daunting task ahead. On the Colbert Report
Thursday night, Colbert talked about Letterman’s retirement and mentioned that he “[doesn't] envy whoever they try to put in that chair.” But just look at that grin on his face. Congratulations, Stephen.
