CBS has announced who will replace David Letterman, at the helm of the Late Show.

Stephen Colbert signed a 5 year contract to host the long-running late night talk show.

Letterman announced his retirement on April 3rd during a taping of his show. He's going to stay on until 2015, when Colbert will step in.

He'd been the host for 21 years.

There are some questions that still need answering, though.

First, where will the show be shot?

Currently, The Late Show is filmed in New York at the Ed Sullivan Theatre, but in a release, CBS only said "the locations for the Colbert-hosted Late Show will be determined and announced at a later date."

That opens up the possibility that the show could be shot in LA, distancing itself from rival production The Tonight Show, which is now hosted by Jimmy Fallon.
