You may have heard that a fellow by the name of Stephen Colbert (the T is silent!) is taking over the "Late Show" on September 8th, and now we have a spiffy new website to prove it, where, according the description, "you'll find the latest behind-the-scenes updates, videos, podcasts, photos, pics, images, visual representations, and smells, as we work hard putting together a brand new show for you. Think of this site as the Early Late Show of the Future, in the Present!"

There are a lot of goodies on there already — for example, the below video where Stephen finally shaves off his beard, which CBS is making him get rid of because "Tom Selleck's mustache has a non-compete cause.”

There's also the first episode of a recurring podcast called "In the Bad Room With Stephen Colbert," a comedy nerd's dream which features Colbert and some of his team discussing “about the process of putting the show together." What follows is a fascinating discussion about what has been going on at Colbert’s "Late Show" behind-the-scenes, from brainstorming recurring segments to the differences in writing for the real Colbert verses his iconic "Colbert Report" character.

Oh, and if all that wasn't enough Colbert goodness for one Wednesday, today also saw the inauguration of a Colbert "Late Show" Twitter (@colbertlateshow) a Facebook page, a YouTube account, and an iOS application called Colbr. Colbert Nation is back in business, baby!
