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)!!!

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:

David Letterman Breaks The News Of His Retirement To His Late Show Audience! Watch The Sad Moment HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsDavid Letterman


Earlier today, the news came down the wire that David Letterman announced his retirement this afternoon to a packed audience for his Late Show.

A representative for Worldwide Pants Incorporated has since confirmed the news of David Lettermans retirement and shared the following from his speech made to the Thursday’s taping audience:

"The man who owns this network, Leslie Moonves, he and I have had a relationship for years and years and years, and we have had this conversation in the past, and we agreed that we would work together on this circumstance and the timing of this circumstance. And I phoned him just before the program, and I said, ‘Leslie, it’s been great, you’ve been great, and the network has been great, but I’m retiring. I just want to reiterate my thanks for the support from the network, all of the people who have worked here, all of the people in the theater, all the people on the staff, everybody at home, thank you very much. What this means now, is that Paul [Shaffer] and I can be married."

Ha! Always gotta end things with a laugh!

When he addressed the timetable for this departure from his three decade-plus career, he shared that "it will be at least a year or so … 2015."

We're told from there, the Ed Sullivan Theater audience got to their feet to give him a standing ovation!

It's been quite a ride, Dave! Here's looking forward to the final run!
