Stephen Colbert met with TV critics in Los Angeles this week, about one month before he's due to succeed David Letterman as host of the CBS "Late Show." And the comic, known for playing a parody of a right wing talk show host on Comedy Central’s "Colbert Report," had an interesting tidbit to share about what he’ll be like on the Late Show’s on Sept. 8.

NPR TV critic Eric Deggans joins Here & Now's Robin Young to discuss Colbert's new gig.
