Stephen Colbert made his CBS debut last night as host of the 37th Annual Kennedy Center Honors. While Stephens role was largely to open and close the show, he did briefly appear on stage with David Letterman, who was on hand to and to introduce Tom Hanks, as the pair made a fleeting reference to upcoming transition which will take place on the “Late Show” in 2015.
FedEx CEO Fred Smith was ostensibly the main man at the Ad Council’s annual fundraising dinner on Wednesday night, but it can be hard even for the winner of a public service award to compete with The Man Who’s Succeeding David Letterman.
Yes, Stephen Colbert, in his waning days as host of Comedy Central’s Colbert Report and just months away from taking the reins of CBS’s The Late Show, shined in his role as emcee of the event, which drew some 1,400 ad executives to the Waldorf Astoria in New York and raised a record $3.5 million.
On Friday, November 16th, 2014, Ben & Jerry’s celebrated the end of ‘The Colbert Report’ by bringing free ice cream to the police and fire departments around the United States. Stephen Colbert helped salute heroes in New York City by handing out free cups of AmeriCone Dream.

For @midnight’s final show in New York City, Stephen Colbert was too busy preparing for the show he doesn’t have on Friday to pop over to @midnight and introduce #HashtagWars, so naturally Chris Hardwick made the long journey down the hall to convince Stephen to introduce #NYCIn3Words.
It’s no secret that Stephen Colbert is a huge Apple fanboy, but his taking a call from Apple’s head software designer during a product presentation took the audience by surprise:
Forget hosting The Late Show, Stephen Colbert just lined up the gig of a lifetime: Intergalactic Chancellor of Apple.
Well, his exact title is still a work in progress, if Thursday’s iPad event is any evidence.
