We all knew it was coming, though now we have a date: “The Colbert Report” is finale on Dec. 18.
Stephen Colbert announced a show’s finish date to his assembly on Thursday’s uncover while pitching a paperback chronicle of his book, “America Again.”
The book is entrance out not a impulse too soon. Because once “The Colbert Report” ends on Comedy Central, a regressive impression Colbert has been portraying for 9 years will be no more. When he moves his act to CBS to take over for David Letterman, Colbert will only be himself.
But when will fans get to see a new chronicle of Colbert? That’s still a large mystery. He can’t take over until Letterman stairs down, and Letterman still hasn’t set a final date for his late-night tenure.
In a meantime, Colbert says he’s formulation to take a vacation pleasantness of his “travel agent” Grimmy (who looks suspiciously like a Grim Reaper.)
He’ll be going somewhere prohibited (flames) and a people will have horns. No, it’s not Hell. It’s Greece.
Bon voyage, Stephen!
