Well, Colbert is primed to run a variety show; he's already done it for years on CC, and won multiple Emmy's for his efforts. Plus, many fault Fallon for being too needy and trying to be way too likable. On the flip side, I think Colbert might be the perfect mix of being nice, and being a clever, smart ass.

I can definitely envision watching both shows, and I'm part of the age demographic that CBS and NBC desperately want to attract. If the two channels make it easy for people to watch at their leisure then I can see both shows obtaining big ratings.
