For CBS' "Late Show," the passing of the torch just got penciled in.
Stephen Colbert will make his debut on the long-running late-night show on Tuesday, Sept. 8, the network announced Monday.
For the record, that's just about nine months after Colbert's final, star-studded episode of "The Colbert Report" aired on Comedy Central — a window of time Colbert himself couldn't help but take a jab at in a CBS press release: "I have nine months to make a show, just like a baby. So first, I should find out how you make a baby."
