    …to EVER get a shot like this. He will take Letterman's already left-of-center world view and turn it into something rapturous and totally unexpected, mark my words.

      Colbert, at least in the last few years, is quite significantly to the left of Jon Stewart, hence Colbert Report remaining sharp and fresh, while Jon Stewart becoming stale and the content of The Daily Show becoming less politically vital. Missing an epsiode of the Daily Show or the opening segments used to unthinkable. Now we're lucky if we get one episode a week that's worth watching. Colbert usually hits it out the park every night.

      We lose all or most of that with him hosting a mainstream celeb talkshow by default. Colbert will have 5 mins of jokes with 45 mins of celebrities talking about themselves and whatever they're plugging.
