CBS gives post-Super Bowl slot to Colbert

NEW YORK – Stephen Colbert has landed the coveted post-Super Bowl time slot on CBS this winter.

The network said Wednesday that a special edition of Colbert’s “Late Show” will air directly after the Feb. 7 game, the first time that distinction has gone to a late-night show. Late local news will follow Colbert, and then CBS will show a special edition of James Corden’s “Late Late Show” afterward.
