CBS announced that LATE SHOW with STEPHEN COLBERT will debut Tuesday, Sept. 8 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) from the historic Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City. Colbert was named David Letterman’s successor on April 10, 2014.
“The production office is open, the premiere date is set, and we’re incredibly excited to welcome the creative and comedic genius of Stephen Colbert to CBS late night this fall,” said Nina Tassler, Chairman, CBS Entertainment.
“I have nine months to make a show, just like a baby. So first, I should find out how you make a baby,” said Colbert.
