Colbert Announces Date of Final Show [VIDEO]

Last night, Stephen Colbert announced that the final date of his show would be December 18th — a sad piece of news, but another incentive to buy a copy of his book, America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t. (Now in paperback!)

“Stephen Colbert, the guy you’ve seen here every night for nine years will be gone. All you’ll have left of me is this book,” Colbert said holding up the paperback.

“So pick up America Again in paperback for a loved one. Or for a hated one. Go to your local independent book store, because I have a longtime war against Amazon, and I will never relent. Or — buy it on Amazon, because, you know, just buy it.”

He also announced his post-Report plans: a nice, long vacation in hell Greece.
