Celebrities react to Stephen Colbert taking over 'Late Show'

Letterman Colbert

(CBS)

The speculation is over: Stephen Colbert is officially replacing David Letterman as host of CBS’ Late Show after the longtime host retires in 2015. #CancelColbert worked after all! (Kidding. This has nothing to do with angry tweeters… probaby.)

Celebrities took to Twitter after hearing the announcement to express their congratulations – and their sadness that this means The Colbert Report is in its last days: “Congratulations to Stephen Colbert the person and condolences to Stephen Colbert the character,” Michael Ian Black tweeted.
