There is no hope for late night TV.
Stephen Colbert will be the next host of Late Show.
From CBS News:

Stephen Colbert, the host, writer and executive producer of "The Colbert Report," will replace Letterman in 2015.
"Stephen Colbert is one of the most inventive and respected forces on television," CBS Chairman and CEO Les Moonves said in a statement Thursday.
I was right.
