CBS will salute David Letterman and his legendary broadcasting career with DAVID LETTERMAN: A LIFE ON TELEVISION, a 90-minute primetime special celebrating his more than three decades in television, on Monday, May 4 (9:30-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. As previously announced, Letterman will retire as host of CBS's LATE SHOW on Wednesday, May 20.
The special will be hosted by Emmy Award winner Ray Romano, whose own career was propelled by a 1995 stand-up appearance on the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN. That appearance led into the development of his Emmy Award-winning classic comedy series, "Everybody Loves Raymond," which was produced for CBS by Letterman's production company, Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Romano will take viewers through a retrospective of Letterman's career, starting from his time as a weathercaster in Indiana to his final nights as host of the LATE SHOW on the Network. Read More
