WOW! This was actually totally unexpected news!!!

It was just announced via CBS Entertainment that David Letterman's Late Show successor will be none other than Stephen Colbert!

Solid choice for sure — but surprising as hell as well!

Does this mean the end of The Colbert Report? What happen with Chelsea Handler? Were there ever even talks with her?

One big question answered, but so many, many to follow!

UPDATE: Stephen has just released a statement, staying:

“Simply being a guest on David Letterman’s show has been a highlight of my career. never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave’s lead.”

This will definitely live on as one of the Top Ten tributes paid to David Letterman's lasting legacy.

We're all still pretty sad about the announcement of Dave's retirement sometime next year, but he got a pretty great sendoff courtesy of The Simpsons!

Set to the epic Rhapsody in Blue, this variation of the opening sequence to the animated series has Homer, Marge, Bart, Lisa, and the little baby who killed Mr. Burns receiving a chance to be guests on The Late Show and sit on a perhaps even more famous couch.

This gag deserves a huge standing ovation, without the assistance of an applause sign! Best. Couch gag. Ever.

At the end of the opening, the show had this somber message for the late night great:

Wow, we haven't had a Lindsay Lohan fashion moment in a while!

The actress finally gave us a dose of style in NYC yesterday ahead of her visit to The Late Show with David Letterman.

First, she was spotted getting in a car to go to the show wearing floral print drop-crotch pants with a matching button-up and bow-embellished flats.

The outfit would've been fine if she hadn't also added a textured cardigan and floppy hat to the mix. Unnecessary!

Later that day, before she stepped into the Ed Sullivan Theater, she posed for paps in a sequined piano key Ashish dress styled with knee socks and Louboutin booties.

Cute! But, again, that hat was totally superfluous.

When asked if he’d be interested in the job, he explained:
