One of the mainstays of the current late-night talk landscape will be around until at least August 2023. CBS announced that it has inked an extension with “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert.
Colbert’s original deal was set to expire in August 2020.
“Stephen Colbert is one of the most entertaining, influential and relevant voices in America today,” said David Nevins, chief creative officer for CBS Corp. and chairman and CEO of Showtime Networks Inc. “His monologue has become a vibrant part of the national discussion, and a spot on Stephen’s couch places guests from the worlds of entertainment, news and politics in front of late-night’s largest and most desirable audience. We’re incredibly proud of the broadcast and thrilled to extend our relationship with Stephen for years to come.”
