Stephen Colbert to succeed David Letterman as ‘Late Show’ host

CBS announced that Stephen Colbert will succeed David Letterman as host of “The Late Show.”

Letterman announced last week that he will retire in 2015.

Some midweek Michael Mann action, complete with a soundtrack by the ever-wonderful Tangerine Dream
