The world of late-night talk shows seems more or less to have settled, now that Stephen Colbert will take the 'Late Show' from David Letterman and slotted 'Daily Show' alum Larry Wilmore to replace him in the 'Colbert Report' timeslot, but was Colbert really the network's first choice? 'How I Met Your Mother' alum Neil Patrick Harris says otherwise, claiming CBS first attempted to gauge his interest in taking over for Letterman.

Where last year we were watching David Letterman and Jay Leno still battling it out for late-night ratings, the future looks very different now that 'The Colbert Report' star Stephen Colbert has officially been announced as Letterman's replacement, to compete with the already-installed 'Tonight Show' with Jimmy Fallon.

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.
