Looks like that #CancelColbert campaign worked: The Colbert Show's Stephen Colbert will replace a retiring David Letterman as host of the CBS Late Show. Colbert's tenure will begin in 2015, according to an announcement today from CBS' CEO Les Moonves. The Comedy Central star has signed a five-year agreement with CBS, and the show's location is yet to be determined.
