    I like Colbert but not happy about this, that he will be doing a straight talk show.

    I have no choice but to place the Late Show and Colbert On Notice.

    Obvious question: is he going to do this in character? If not, is he retiring the character? If he retires the character, who becomes the next official fake right wingnut of Comedy Central?

    I am also hoping that he doesn't retire his character. The last thing television needs is yet another safe, non-offensive, stale late night variety show. The only thing that could possibly be worse would be hearing that Colbert was leaving to star in some new cop drama on CBS.

    From what I heard, no. It's a change, to be sure, but I'm interested in seeing what the guy can do when he's no longer playing his character.

    I've seen occasional interviews with him out of character. There's even one of him out of character interviewing Neil deGrasse Tyson. I'm sure he'll be fine, but I will miss the character.

    Jennifer Garner used to babysit for Stephen Colbert's kids.

    This news about drove Rush Limbaugh into an epileptic fit, which is amusing in itself.
