But the question remains: will Colbert continue to play his character on the Late Show, or will he be, well, himself?
Colbert’s Comedy Central persona is already similar to his real-life person, from his affinity for The Lord Of The Rings to being raised in South Carolina. But the humor is largely contained in the cluelessness of his political beliefs, and that could be lost, as the Late Show is guest-centric and significantly less political than Colbert’s own show. Not to mention Letterman is a staple of late night television, and filling his shoes would be hard enough on someone who hasn’t spent more than ten years playing a part.
But Colbert’s fans know they’re in good hands! Colbert is a talented speaker and a natural comic, and his most devoted have no doubts that he is the best man for the job. We can’t wait until 2015!

The 65th annual primetime Emmy awards graced our television screens last night (if you were not too busy indulging in Sunday night football). The legendary awards were hosted by funny man and How I Met Your Mother star, Neil Patrick Harris.
The award ceremony included many wins and disappointing defeats due to the stiff competition amongst categories. Highly acclaimed actors Matt Damon and Michael Douglas were up against each for the Outstanding Lead Actor in a Movie for their co-starring roles in HBO's Behind the Candelabra – the story of the six year relationship between Liberace and his very young lover, *awkward* (Douglas won). Hollywood BFFS Amy Poehler and Tina Fey who are constantly up against each other for the Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series both lost to Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
The annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show aired on CBS last night and was pure sexiness! The Angels strutted their stuff on TV's hottest night of the year. In addition, the night included special performances from RiRi, The Biebs and Bruno Mars who all rocked the runway! Justin Bieber pulled out his signature Bieber moves donning an all white outfit while the very sultry Rihanna sported cool pearl rimmed sunglasses and Bruno Mars gave a playful and energetic performance as always.
1. Justin Bieber Performs "Beauty & A Beat"
2. Bruno Mars Performs "Locked Out Of Heaven"
3. Rihanna Performs "Diamonds"

Your trusty editor's dream has come true. Part-time actor and full-time DILF Neil Patrick Harris is finally getting the star treatment he deserves.

Whedon also spoke a few words with NPH when the actor received the huge honor.
