Comedian and talk show host Stephen Colbert is CBS’ top choice to replace the retiring David Letterman, according to Mashable. The digital magazine reports that though Colbert has not had any formal discussions with CBS, he is at the “front-and-center” of potential candidates, which include fellow comedian Jon Stewart. Mashable also adds that Colbert’s contract to host The Colbert Report on Comedy Central runs through the end of 2014, which would free him up in time to move over to CBS when Letterman ends his 33-year run in late-night TV.
