When is David Letterman’s Last Day at “Late Show”? Who will be replacing him?
David Letterman will complete his story in history books on May 20, 2015. That’s when the late-night talk show host is scheduled to tape his final 6,028th episode of the “Late Show” after announcing his retirement back in April.
Letterman, 67, previously was on “Late Night” airing on NBC prior to 1993. He currently has aired on CBS ever since under the title, “Late Show” marking an end to a 32 year career in late-night talk television.
“David Letterman has given to all of us a remarkable legacy of achievement and creative brilliance that will never be forgotten,” said CBS Corp. president and CEO Leslie Moonves. “It’s going to be tough to say goodbye, but I know we will all cherish the shows leading up to Dave’s final broadcast in May.”
CBS is choosing to replace Letterman with Stephen Colbert from Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report”, which Stephen will be filming his last episode next week.
