conan obrien stephen colbert congratulations new job late show host

Ever since Stephen Colbert was announced as David Letterman's Late Show successor, the roving Reporter (don't even try to pronounce that) has garnered plenty of praise!

But everyone wants to know what his late night competition thinks!

Before the announcement, some wondered if the gap left by Letterman could leave room for MTV Movie Awards host Conan O'Brien to finally return to network TV!

Well, Conan has responded to that speculation with nothing but love for the man who got the job. He said:

"I wasn't up for it. I'm very happy where I am. But I love Stephen. Stephen is great. I'm a huge fan of his as a comic and a human being. I think it’s fantastic and I'm really glad he got the job, and I look forward to seeing his show. He's going to be fantastic."

We're so glad Conan is happy! Besides, he took over for Letterman once before, back in 1993. Why not give someone else a chance?
