    and I'm not interested in watching celebs plug their show, book or movie, which is what these late night show's are all about.

    Also, I'm not interested in Colbert trading jabs with the likes of Bill O'Reilly, instead of ridiculing him and FOX News to his face. There is no way CBS will tolerate any leftist commentary or one-sided satirizing of conservatives (of course Colbert won't be in character) in his opening monologue or during interviews. I'll put it this way, if there's another writers strike, which Les Moonves joined forces with Rupert Murdoch is attacking, there's no way Colbert will criticize CBS corporate.

    Unless the format is completely changed to accomodate Colbert's own personality and worldview (which is actually to the left of Jon Stewart), there won't be much to seperate his show from the rest, only better writting and delivered jokes. That's nowhere near enough to get me to watch every night.

    Gawd this sucks.
