In a statement, Cuomo argues that both the show and its audience are inextricably linked with NYC: "With East Coast-based host Stephen Colbert taking the reins of the 'Late Show,' it's clear we should keep the show where it belongs — here in New York." CBS hasn't yet decided where the show will film, but Colbert has said he'll be keeping his current staff. So, if it doesn't stay in New York, Colbert's team will have to move, too. Anticipating the relocation, the State of California has started discussing creating tax incentives for moving the program. But, can you imagine the Ed Sullivan Theater without that lit-up marquee? We certainly can't. (Variety)
