Last night, as the dust settled on the news that Stephen Colbert would be taking over ‘Late Show’ from David Letterman at some point in 2015, I was engaged in a conversation that drifted toward just how someone qualifies to be a viable candidate for a network late night talk show in the first place. More specifically, how is it that 28 years ago, a woman actually did host a network late night network talk show and, now, in 2014, that would seem almost revolutionary.

Fallon has had quite a bit of success using Twitter to solicit fun stories from his fanbase, and they always respond to his calls for hashtagged tales in spades.

On last night's 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' rapper/actor/apparent ESPYs host Drake gussied himself up and took to the streets to quiz people about, well, him. The results? A lot of weird opinions about Drake, who is so obviously the guy standing in front of these people, no matter his bad wig or worse shirt. Hey, at least there was some singing.

Five Hopes We Have For ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’

Stephen Colbert Late Show
Comedy Central

Today, in a semi-surprising announcement (surprising in how fast this announcement came; not for the actual choice) Stephen Colbert was tapped to replace David Letterman as the host of ‘Late Show.’

Stephen Colbert’s conservative character that he currently plays on ‘The Colbert Report’ will be gone, replaced by the actual Stephen Colbert – a guy, kind of surprisingly, not a lot of people know, as opposed to the character he’s been playing since 2005.

What will ‘The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’ look like, as opposed to Letterman and Colbert’s current show? Here are our hopes:

David Letterman and Lindsay Lohan Prank Called Oprah on Air

CBS
CBS

Lindsay Lohan hit the 'Late Show With David Letterman' last night, and the pair inevitably prank called Oprah (as one does), a gag that could have gone in a very different reaction if Winfrey wasn't so damn wise. Seriously, don't try to pull the wool over Oprah's eyes. She knows what's up.

Channing Tatum and Jonah Hill Visit Guillermo’s Show-Within-a-Show on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’

Guillermo may be Jimmy Kimmel's "security guard" and "driver" and "friend," but he also has some big dreams, like usurping the late-night throne from his own boss and host of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.' If that involves stealing his jokes, so be it. If that means just taking over the late-night show's air time, fine. If he needs to text high-profile guests to get them on the show, consider it done.
