PEREZ Rewind: Watch The Last Time Stephen Colbert Was On Late Show With David Letterman!

| Filed under: Silly!Stephen ColbertDavid LettermanLate Night TV

With the news that Stephen Colbert was leaving The Colbert Report and replacing David Letterman at CBS, we got to thinking:

When was the last time we saw Stephen and David come face-to-face? Did past Stephen have any idea that in a year he'd be moving to the other side of the desk?

Ch-ch-check out the video (above) to see the last time Colbert reported to duty at Late Show, from back in December of last year!

Ellen DeGeneres Parodies….Uh, We Mean Delivers A Monologue In The Style Of The Late Show!

Although we now know that Stephen Colbert will be replacing David Letterman, up until today Ellen DeGeneres had been coming up on various lists of possible replacements for Dave, and as a result, Ellen took to her day show to dispel those rumors!

While she said she's happy to be on day time (and it's now confirmed she won't be taking over Dave's desk), she did give her audience a brief, tongue-in-cheek taste of what it would be like to have her host The Late Show by delivering a monologue in the style of a late night show.

Our favorite gag? Ellen, after having an issue getting out of the curtain, admits that she hasn't "had that much trouble coming out since 1997." BA-DUM-CHA!

Ch-ch-check out her whole monologue (above)!!!

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!!

While 98.7% of the world rejoiced when CBS announced that Stephen Colbert would fill its David Letterman-shaped Late Show void next year, there are still some who are not as pleased as punch!

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:

It was just announced that David Letterman's The Late Show successor will be none other than Stephen Colbert! The Comedy Central staple and Colbert Report creator clearly has some big shoes to fill, but if there is one person who is confident in him — it's Dave!

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:
