Tracy Morgan: I’d Love to Host “Late Show”

Just missing the mark, Tracy Morgan announced that he would love a spot in the running to replace David Letterman on “Late Show.”

During his interview on the “Today Show” Thursday (April 10), the “30 Rock” star joked that he is “throwing himself in the mix” for a chance to host the CBS late night program.

"I don't know, but it would be a different perspective," Tracy explained. "We'll shake the game up. I think Jimmy Fallon needs some competition out there."

"It would be different every night," Morgan added. "It might be Drake one night; it might be Sly & the Family Stone one night; it might be War one night; it might be the Doobie Brothers one night. I'm going to shake it up, be creative."

But, the comedian is just too late. As previously reported by GossipCenter, CBS announced that Stephen Colbert is taking over for Letterman in 2015.
