Larry Wilmore 'Replaces' Colbert on CBS' Late Show — Video

Two weeks after the unceremonious conclusion of his Nightly Show on Comedy Central, Larry Wilmore returned to late night — much to Stephen Colbert’s (deadpan) surprise.

Wilmore opened Tuesday’s The Late Show, declaring himself the program’s new host before launching into the opening monologue. However, his comeback is quickly cut short when Colbert — aka Wilmore’s ex-Daily Show colleague and his Comedy Central predecessor — walks out and reminds him who’s boss.

Wilmore’s response? “I’m sorry, I thought whoever leaves Comedy Central at 11:30 just gets the Late Show.”
