Hubster Jen has sent us this wonderful “Taping ReporT” of her trip to the November 4th, 2014 taping of “The Colbert Report”.
After six years and more tapings than there were supposed to be, I’ve just returned from my final one. And let me tell you… I couldn’t have picked a better way to end my visits to the show.
David Letterman will end his run as host of The Late Show on Wednesday, May 20, CBS announced Wednesday. Letterman has hosted the CBS show for 22 years, and his 32 years total at the job make him the longest-tenured late night talk show host on TV.
“David Letterman has given to all of us a remarkable legacy of achievement and creative brilliance that will never be forgotten,” CBS Corp President and CEO Leslie Moonves said in today’s announcement. “It’s going to be tough to say goodbye, but I know we will all cherish the shows leading up to Dave’s final broadcast in May.”
