David Letterman to Retire from CBS in 2015

Letterman is expected to discuss his plan to retire in about a year on Thursday’s edition of “The Late Show.”

Last year, Letterman re-upped his latenight contract with the Eye network in a two-year deal that was expected to be his last.

As of next year, Letterman will have hosted “Late Show” on CBS for 22 years. He logged 11 years as host of NBC’s “Late Night” before famously being passed over at NBC for Johnny Carson’s throne on “The Tonight Show” — over Carson’s objection.

Word of Letterman’s plan spread quickly via Twitter on Thursday afternoon after musician Mike Mills, who is appearing on Thursday’s show, noted Letterman’s big news.

so sad.
first oprah, now dave... julia is losing all her talk show buddies, the ones that treat her like their biggest guest.
i think julia could very well be his guest for the final episode.
i'm glad she started to build a relationship with ellen (even if honestly i don't think they have a great chemistry... julia kind of feel awkward and intimidated last december when she was on the show). she should start to go to Jimmy fallon or other hip and young-friendly shows...

That's sad, I really like him. As for Ellen, I think Julia is doing well on her show. Julia wasn't intimidated, but getting too physical (moving ,dancing..) is not her cup of tea. Remember when she promoted Mirror, she had a lot of fun, as long as she is sitting, lol.

damn. i'm getting old.

it's weird how the people julia feels most comfy with have slowly lost their shows.

but it's great how julia is so associated with them that she is mentioned almost as often in the articles, especially those abou tdavid letterman.

I like Colbert, very intelligent and funny. Apparently he's appreciated in the US. I'm glad it's him, as long as it is not Chelsea Handler. I don't stand her or her celeb friends.
