Chris Rock pranked us when he posted a photo on Twitter in David Letterman’s chair, with the caption, “And the new host of the late show is.” We were totally excited thinking about all the great jokes he could tell and his on-point social and racial commentary. Too bad it was all a joke. You jokester you.

This unapologetic duo would be perfect to host “The Late Show.” If you’ve ever seen any of their “SNL” skits or the time they hosted the Golden Globes, you understand why.

Hannibul Buress made headlines this year when he became one of the first people to take Bill Cosby to task over the mounting rape allegations against America’s former favorite dad. Buress would have made an excellent host.

6. Louis C.K.

Louis C.K. keeps it all the way real all the time, which would have made him an ideal candidate to take over “The Late Show.” The hilarious comedian star tackles life’s hardships with humor on his FX show “Louis.”

7. Larry Wilmore

With his own late night show on Comedy Central, Larry Wilmore would be perfect to take over “The Late Show” reigns.

8. Dave Chappelle

Dave Chapelle is one of the funniest men to ever touch a mic and his social commentary is always spot on.

Our favorite Beyonce impressionist would make a fine “Night Show” host. With several shows under her Prada belt, the freckled-face star would be an amazing host.
