Stephen Colbert to Host “The Kennedy Center Honors” Before Taking Over “The Late Show”

(via The Washington Post)

While The Colbert Report comes to a close on Dec. 18th, you’ll have a chance to see Stephen Colbert host once more not too long after that. Of course, Colbert is set to take over The Late Show, but he’s also now going to host the annual Kennedy Center Honors set to broadcast on Dec. 30th on CBS after taping on Dec. 7th.

Lily Tomlin and Tom Hanks are among the honorees and will undoubtedly be fun to see next to or around Colbert, post-Colbert Report.
