We've been talking about the decision to replace David Letterman with Stephen Colbert over here at xoJ HQ. Rebecca's contribution was this: "Because late night TV totally needs another white guy."

I've always loved Colbert so I'm excited to see what will happen when he takes over the CBS timeslot, but I wonder if you were to offer an alternate suggestion, who would it be?

Also, who would you like to see take over "The Colbert Report" timeslot on Comedy Central? I vote Jessica Williams.
