Stephen Colbert Says Goodbye: ‘I’ve Won Television’
Posted on Apr 24, 2014
“Almost nine years ago, I promised to change the world, and together, I did it,” says Stephen Colbert, still in character as his self-obsessed conservabot doppelganger, while dropping in to rub it in on his onetime mentor Jon Stewart’s “Daily Show” on Wednesday night.
Claiming he’ll take to the rails with a one-eyed prostitute and a pocket-sized rodent companion, not taking over for David Letterman on CBS’ “Late Night” (that job apparently goes to some “fat” unfortunate), Colbert comes prepared with his own highlight reel from his nine-year run on “The Colbert Report”—plus some special moments from his formative years as part of Stewart’s supporting cast.
