Well, it’s official. Stephen Colbert will be taking over the Late Show, once David Letterman retires in 2015. Despite rumors that Ellen Degeneres, Howard Stern, Conan O’Brien – and literally everyone else in the comedy world – were being considered for the gig, CBS revealed their pick in a statement released today. (We, for one, can’t wait to watch Fred and Carrie chat with Colbert once Portlandia Season 5 rolls around.) Watch a classic exchange with Letterman and his soon-to-be successor below.
