Bill O’Reilly Says Stephen Colbert Is Taking a ‘Risk’ by Replacing Letterman
“Extra’s” AJ Calloway caught up with Bill O’Reilly in NYC, and the FOX News host spoke candidly about how he feels about Stephen Colbert taking over for David Letterman.
O’Reilly said, “It's a risk because he's got to be better than Kimmel and Fallon. That’s what it’s all about, it’s like a sports team. Those guys, they’re pretty high energy, they have a big following. Colbert's never done it before.”
O’Reilly added he thinks Colbert may have a hard time getting conservatives to watch. “He’s a real committed left wing guy, he's not like [Jon] Stewart. Stewart will punch both sides.”
Bill won’t rule out appearing on Colbert’s new show. “If he invites me on the program, I'll consider it.”
