- The loss of his “Colbert” character will be painful. It’s been one of the most genius, game-changing comedic performances on modern television and to not have that 4 nights a week anymore will be truly unfortunate.
- Additionally it’s a shame CBS didn’t go for a woman or person of color in this spot. More of the same.
- But it’s exciting to see what Colbert can do on CBS in a more traditional format. They wouldn’t have hired him if they didn’t think he had the personality skills to carry such a show. It’s going to be different but exciting nonetheless.
- Colbert and Fallon going head-to-head will be delightful for their “BFFs for 6 months” rivalry.
- Comedy Central has the option to move @midnight up which would be cool (though confusing considering the title), or move another strong Daily Show voice into the 11:30 spot (Jessica Williams, Kristen Schaal, John Hodgman, Wyatt Cenac).
- Ratings wise I could see them expanding Tosh into a 4-day a week show at 11:30, but it wouldn’t be consistent with the intelligent brand they’ve built from 11-12.
I concur with all of these thoughts.
