David Letterman will be succeeded by Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central

David Letterman will be succeeded by Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report." Colbert will sign off from that show next week on December 18.


A spectacular departure is planned for the acclaimed late-night host. Letterman will be succeeded by Stephen Colbert of Comedy Central's "The Colbert Report." Colbert will sign off from that show next week on December 18.

CBS did not announce a start date for Colbert on Wednesday, but May 20 is close to the end of the May "sweeps" month for television ratings. The Memorial Day holiday follows afterwards on May 25. A start date at the end of May or beginning of June seems likely.

CBS's press release noted that Letterman is the "longest-tenured late night talk show host at more than 32 years" -- beating even "Tonight Show" Johnny Carson's record.

The 67-year-old Letterman created a nightly comedy and variety series that could hold its own against TV's most successful dynasty, "The Tonight Show." It managed that and far more over it's nearly 22 years, including a run as late night leader early in the show's history.

Letterman's first late-night outing began on February 1, 1982, when he launched NBC's "Late Night" franchise. When he steps down, he will have hosted 6,028 episodes of both "Late Night" and "Late Show," according to CBS.
Before taking over "The Late Show" in 1993, Letterman hosted NBC's "Late Night" for 11 years.

"As of May 20, 2015, Letterman will have hosted 6,028 total episodes of both 'Late Night' and the 'Late Show,'" CBS said.
