We've known for some time now that 'The Colbert Report' would say goodbye as Stephen moves on to bigger and better things at CBS' 'Late Show,' but we at last have a departure point. Comedy Central has officially scheduled the last 'Colbert Report' for mid December, but when can we run screaming at the gates to say goodbye?

Pretty much everything you need to know about the Michael Fassbender-starring 'Frank' is contained in the above video. The offbeat Sundance pick is about a musical dreamer who joins up with a hip band -- The Soronprfbs -- and is intrigued by their nutty leader (Frank, played by Fassbender), a genius who insists on wearing a giant fake head all the time. He's...a little strange.

Stephen Colbert takes issues with a lot of things on 'The Colbert Report' -- old people making new friends, the Second Amendment, and graphics that aren't blatantly American enough. The funnyman is also permanently on edge when it comes to the possibility that Hillary Clinton will run for president and her constant name-dropping, especially as it litters her new book, 'Hard Choices.' It's just egregious! How can she possibly have so many friends? And when does she find the time to hang out with all of them?

Much as 2014 shook the late night landscape with Jimmy Fallon's ascension to the 'Tonight Show' throne, 2015 will similarly upend the 'Late Show' as 'Colbert Report' host Stephen Colbert takes over for the retiring David Letterman. Colbert himself stopped by Letterman's couch today to talk about the transition, the first footage of which has made its way online!

Watch Colbert and 'The Daily Show''s Jon Stewart react to the news from yesterday's new episodes!

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:
