Gearing up to pass the baton, Stephen Colbert will appear on the "Late Show with David Letterman" on Tuesday (April 22).

The "Colbert Report" host isn't taking over until next year and this will give Dave's audience a taste of what's to come.

After over thirty years of Letterman, CBS hopes the switch will improve 18-49 age range ratings as well as earn more female viewers.

Speaking about his successor, David stated, "Stephen has always been a real friend to me. I've very excited for him, and I'm flattered that CBS chose him, and I'm flattered that CBS chose him. I also happen to know they wanted another guy with glasses."
