We have to give Stephen Colbert a huge tip o' the hat for the crumbelievable news that he'll be succeeding David Letterman as host of The Late Show!

But what will happen to The Colbert Report? And the character version of Stephen Colbert that we've come to know and love?

Comedy Central issued a statement today that hinted at the end of the show once Stephen leaves:

"Comedy Central is proud that the incredibly talented Stephen Colbert has been part of our family for nearly two decades. We look forward to the next eight months of the ground-breaking Colbert Report and wish Stephen the very best.”

We're not going to lie (since we're all about truthiness), this news is a little bit sad.

Also, Stephen announced today that we'll also be forced to say goodbye to his satirical, right winged character:

"I won't be doing the new show in character, so we'll all get to find out how much of him was me. I'm looking forward to it."

While we mourn the loss of such an AH-Mazing (and recently controversial) character, we'll also be celebrating the success of this HIGHlarious, and genuinely nice comedian!

Congrats Stephen! We know you'll do wonders over at CBS!

    Bad choice for CBS,
    Colbert' expiration date has come and gone
    The guy is no longer funny, way too predictable on what he will do next
    CBS should have found a new talent, someone more people can relate to
    Did any of the headhunters check out how Colbert did in promoting his sister in South Carolina, that's a good indicator

    What a surprise and what a really nice man too. Besides being really funny with humor not matched by many, he will take the show to number one. Jimmy Fallon was good at the later time but I can't get behind who he is and the ego he boats that will only be more apparent as time passes. Most of us are enjoying Kimmel and Letterman over Fallon in his tme slot and his redundant shows. I'll love Stephen Colbert best of all. He is an amazing choice!

    He's not even remotely funny. Poor choice.

    His sense of humor is too smart for America's simpletons.

    HA he will be great. I love the previous angry "old confederacy" comments claiming he is not funny, and past his prime. Just because he makes certain elements of America look like the idiots they are.
