CBS moved swiftly Thursday to replace the retiring David Letterman with Comedy Central's Stephen Colbert, who will take over the "Late Show" next year and do battle with Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel for late-night television supremacy.
Stephen Colbert is done with the 'Colbert Report' Twitter account. He teamed with one of Twitter's founders, Biz Stone, on Monday's show to symbolically blow up his show's Twitter account. The account has been removed from Twitter.
Comedy Central deleted a message Thursday from its "Colbert Report" Twitter feed showing a still from Wednesday night's show where Stephen Colbert joked about starting a "Ching-Chong Ding-Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever."
Not even the pope was immune Thursday night as political satirist Stephen Colbert cracked one-liners and took digs at luminaries from politics, finance and the media at a Roman Catholic charity dinner in New York City that's perennially packed with big names.
