And it appears $45,000 is a small price to pay for... $16 million in state tax breaks:

Staffers for Colbert were told that the show was expected to remain in New York, though CBS was angling for tax credits before making anything official. Sure enough, the deal announced Wednesday includes $11 million in tax credits, spread over five years, as well as a grant worth up to $5 million for renovations at the Ed Sullivan Theater.
