In a few months, he'll take over hosting duties for David Letterman's "Late Show" -- not that he's begun thinking about it too much.
"["The Colbert Report"] takes 100 percent of my brain to get done because I don't have the ability to think about this show and another show in the future," he told reporters backstage at the Emmys, "and I'm still really enjoying watching Dave right now."
Colbert, 50, was named the new host of the CBS late night show in April. However, last night, he accepted his best variety series award with some help Jimmy Fallon.
"It has been a ton of fun to do the show," Colbert said. "We want to thank Jon Stewart again."
