Oprah. Uma. Uma. Oprah.

Well, looks who's replacing David Letterman next year…

A week after David Letterman announced his retirement, CBS has named his successor. Stephen Colbert has inked a five-year deal to take over Late Show, a move that is effective as soon as Letterman officially steps aside from the late-night show he has headlined since its launch on CBS in 1993. 

Colbert is host of Comedy Central’s faux-news show The Colbert Report, which airs at the same time as Late Show, 11:30 PM. Colbert had been on the radar of top CBS brass for awhile and was said to be a top choice of CBS Corp. CEO Leslie Moonves.

I think that Stephen Colbert is probably the best choice they could have made. He's got a similar sense of humor and snark.

I'm still gonna miss Dave.
