Final 'Colbert Report': What Hollywood Is Saying
It's time to say goodbye to Stephen Colbert (the conservative pundit version of him, anyway).
Yes, The Colbert Report has come to an end — and his friends and admirers are already mourning the loss, and wishing him luck on his next gig as David Letterman's The Late Show successor. Here's a sampling of the well-wishes Colbert is receiving. And since it's Colbert, we're throwing in his own self-congratulatory tweet as well.
