Countdown To ‘The Late Show With Stephen Colbert’

NEW YORK ( — The “Late Show with Stephen Colbert” makes its debut Tuesday night and on the eve of the premiere, the comedian opened up about his new gig.

Colbert is taking over the slot that David Letterman held for 22 years. Before Letterman’s final show in May, Colbert asked the late-night legend for advice.

“I said: ‘Do you mind me asking these questions?’ And he said: ‘No. No one’s ever asked me these questions before.’ I said: ‘Really? No one’s ever asked you? They seem like pretty basic questions to me.’ And he goes: ‘Well, who would know to ask them? How many people would even understand the answers I’m giving you?’ And I thought, oh that’s nice. We’re two guys talking shop, who’ve got a very unusual job. And that was a very nice way of him sort of handing me the keys,” Colbert said.
