Stephen Colbert will replace David Letterman as host of "The Late Show," CBS announced Thursday.
So ... which Colbert actually replaces him? The real Stephen Colbert or the faux Bill O'Reilly wannabe currently hosting "The Colbert Report."
This may confuse America ... I mean, worse than it already is.
Letterman has announced he'll retire from the 11:30 p.m. time slot next year, after more than 30 years on NBC and CBS.
"Stephen Colbert is one of the most inventive and respected forces on television," said Leslie Moonves, the network's president and CEO. "David Letterman's legacy and accomplishments are an incredible source of pride for all of us here, and today's announcement speaks to our commitment of upholding what he established for CBS in late night."
So who's going to replace Colbert on "The Colbert Report."
According to ABC News, the 49-year-old Emmy-winning Colbert said being a guest of Letterman's was "a highlight of my career.
"I never dreamed that I would follow in his footsteps, though everyone in late night follows Dave's lead," he said. "I'm thrilled and grateful that CBS chose me. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go grind a gap in my front teeth."
