Well, there is one cadre of people not happy Stephen Colbert's succession to The Late Show throne, and that's the #CancelColbert movement and its leaders!
Technically, The Colbert Show and the character of Stephen Colbert will be cancelled and retired respectively, as many were quick to jokingly point out, including Michael Ian Black on Twitter:
Looks like the #cancelcolbert people got their way.

After vowing in a since deleted tweet to keep silent on the matter of Colbert's promotion, Suey Park and fellow activist Eunsong Kim had this to say in a Time Magazine op-ed:
It's official. Northwestern University now has two of the top four late night desks under its claw-like grasp! Go U! This news rocks more than the Rock!
Seth Meyers took a moment on Late Night last night to congratulate Stephen Colbert, but he also noted that not only were both graduates of Northwestern, they also had a HIGHlarious situation arose from this common background.

Rush Limbaugh is mad. REALLY mad. It's not the first time something has really chafed his arse and it probably won't be the last time, but this time the dude is straight-up pissed!!
Rush, for instance, a wildly popular pundit and radio host amongst conservative America, thinks the selection is tantamount to CBS waging war on its very own country!
On his show today, in response to the news, Rush offered:
ATTENTION COLBERT NATION!!!
Comedy Central stans aside, maJOR celebs have been singing Stephen's praises on Twitter too, since the official announcement was made earlier this morning!
