I wonder too - will be interesting to watch. Sad that if it fails he probably won't go back to The Colbert Report

Colbert is incredibly talented. He was on Broadway in Stephen Sondheim's Company, is smart and funny. I do wonder what tone he'll take with his real personality.

I for one will miss the Colbert Report - it's so on and smartly satirical, and it was lighter in a way than The Daily Show. Having him play the uber conservative host really allowed for commentary that the straight up Stewart can't cover. Oh well. Maybe someone will arise with a similar show before the next Presidential election.
