    After listening to Colbert and watching all of his videos, I think it's very likely that he will bomb. Letterman has been less than gracious and the "real Colbert" sounds just like that fake character he's been doing.

    What's your take?

    I say he's toast in 6 months.

    6 months? No way CBS pulls the plug that early. I do think they will regret not doing everything in their power to get Jon Steward to do it.

    I think it'll beat Kimmel.

    But you're right. Him without the character = him still playing a smarmy douche sans the political parody. part.

    I knew he wouldn't have anything else. He's been trying to make that schtick catch on since the Strangers with Candy days. It finally did and he ditches the primary reason why. Way ta go, reta'd.

    You might be onto something...CBS is promoting it 24/7 which is making me think they are getting nervous about it.

    I think he'll hurt Kimmel's numbers a little but Fallon's numbers won't be hurt because Fallon fans are not looking for comedy but entertainment...

    In the end... Kimmel and Colbert tied with Fallon way ahead.

    Colbert, however, will get more Emmys.

    I think his show will do fine. He seems to be a pretty talented guy. More so than john Stewart.
    He was doing a little crudely thrown together podcast with some of the people prepping for the new late show and it was entertaining.
    All late night talk shows are corny as shit, but I think SC will do just fine

    butt hurt crowd here, presumably everyone that didn't like him parodying their particular political leaning. wahhh

    Colbert is a genius. Even when he's not in character. Still no clue why he wasted any time going on Wig show. And even less clue why he told ratings poison Stern to come on the show.

    Define "bomb"?

    It's an all new world...lowered expectations are the new norm.

    He can only "fail" upwards.
    He can only fail because "America" doesn't know better.....silly and stupid Americans.

    Divide and conquer...the audiences.

    Good luck in the muck

    If it isn't how real people talk......Which it won't be,It will die.

    We have fallen for a formula that is safe from offending anyone (especially the irrational) and safe for Advertising to sell shit you don't need.

    I highly doubt that old and simple people will enjoy his highbrow humor.

    Carson and Letterman were from the Midwest and had a certain likeability which Colbert lacks.

    Personally, I hope kicks that no talent Fallon's ass. I still wonder how long Fallon can keep his audience interested by playing games with celebrities on the air.

    I think Colbert is a funny guy. He is more talented than the two Jimmys.

    I think it was dumb to ditch the parody because it was so good/relevant.

    Another stupid excuse but the media just full on gets out their kneepads and says thanks for being our friend and so open and accessible that we will go ahead and spread your lies like they are the gospel. How come no one will call out this A list talk show host and tell the truth. Jimmy Fallon chips tooth

    So what are you implying by posting this blind item? Fallon lied about how he chipped his tooth? Does anyone care?

    I wish you would explain your "blind items" you are the only one who does this.

    There are rumors that Fallon is boozing and taking a lot of drugs and these strings of injuries are because he is a mess.
