Stephen Colbert, who will succeed David Letterman as host when he retires, will visit the “Late Show with David Letterman,” Tuesday, April 22 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on CBS.
CBS announced last week that Colbert, the host, writer and executive producer of the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning “The Colbert Report,” will be the next host of the “Late Show,” effective when Letterman retires from the broadcast sometime in 2015.
Letterman, the legendary, critically-acclaimed host of the CBS late night series for the past 21 years, announced his retirement on the show’s April 3 broadcast.
The “Late Show with David Letterman” is a production of Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Barbara Gaines, Matt Roberts, Jude Brennan, Maria Pope, Eric Stangel, Justin Stangel and Rob Burnett are the executive producers. Jerry Foley is the director.
