Lawmakers want say in 'Late Show' location

Lawmakers in both New York and California want Stephen Colbert to host the "Late Show" in their respective states.

Shortly after CBS announced Thursday that Colbert would be the next host, lawmakers jostled to convince him to either stay in New York or move to California.

"Late Show with David Letterman” is currently shot in New York, as is Colbert's current Comedy Central show, "The Colbert Report."

Jimmy Fallon moved "Late Night" to New York after years of being produced in Burbank during Jay Leno's tenure.

CBS said the location has yet to be determined. Colbert will not take over the show until Letterman steps down sometime next year.

"Specific creative elements, as well as the producers and the location for the Colbert-hosted Late Show, will be determined and announced at a later date," the network said.
