FANS EXCITED ABOUT COLBERT'S FUTURE
I've been out talking to fans outside the Colbert Report studios about Stephen's new, upcoming gig - as host of the Late Show on CBS. Everyone of them excited for Colbert. They think this is an opportunity for him to showcase more than his Colbert Report persona. But they hope he'll use the monologue to continue sending out barbs to cable news networks.
They are divided, though, on where the show should be taped. The New Yorkers, not surprisingly, want it to stay at the Ed Sullivan Theater. Those from LA and San Francisco say they want it moved to the West Coast, now that the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon's come back to the Big Apple.
