David Letterman changed comedy on February 1, 1982 when NBC debuted the very first “Late Night” show, then titled, Late Night with David Letterman. The 12:30am show was a game changer, and continued on without him after Letterman left to take the 11:30 slot at CBS.
Letterman retired in 2015, and took a few years off before returning to television with a Netflix interview series.
Late Night’s current EP, Mike Shoemaker, tweeted the news today.
It's Dave's show and we are just borrowing it.
DAVID LETTERMAN will be our guest on Late Night with @sethmeyers on Wednesday May 23rd!
