Fox News host Bill O'Reilly questions how successful Stephen Colbert will be as the new host of CBS' "Late Show," saying that he will alienate conservatives from the get-go.

"He's an interesting choice," O'Reilly said. "Traditionally, late night has been light and breezy, with a minimum of political posturing. [Johnny] Carson and [Jay] Leno set the tone for that."

"But Colbert has built an entire career on pleasing the left," he added.

Story continues below video.



"So he has to compete with [Jimmy] Fallon and [Jimmy] Kimmel, who are basically high-energy guys who want to have a good time on their shows," O'Reilly said.

"It'd be hard to fathom that 40 percent of Americans that describe themselves as conservative will watch Colbert," O'Reilly said. "And that's a lot of folks to lose from the jump."

However, he says that it doesn't mean that all is lost for the new "Late Show" host.

"Colbert will have good writers, and surely he knows his challenge," he said. "Place your bets now."
