Stephen Colbert Is Replacing David Letterman And Twitter Just Exploded


CBS announced around noon on Thursday, April 10, that Stephen Colbert will replace David Letterman on "The Late Show" when the latter retires in 2015, and shortly after that announcement, Twitter exploded.

The myriad of trending Twitter topics weighing in on the news included #Letterman, #StephenColbert, #TheLateShow and even Steven Colbert, which we’re guessing was started by those cute Internet cats who can’t spell and always has cheezburgers.
