The best word for describing late night television in 2015 would be “change.” A whole lot of change happened this year, what with retirements, replacements and brand-spanking-new developments coming together to form the current slate of programming. (Not to mention a few glimmers on the horizon of 2016.) Talk show titans David Letterman and Jon Stewart bid their final goodbyes; fan-favorites Stephen Colbert, Larry Wilmore and Samantha Bee began or announced new gigs; and newcomers James Corden and Trevor Noah got their big breaks. It was a lot of change for audiences to take in all at once, and late night won’t see anything like it again for a very long time.
