What's Happening?


Bye David Letterman.

So it's happening. It's finally happening. David Letterman, the legendary, is retiring. David has been host of CBS's Late Show with David Letterman since 1993 and last night, he announced his retirement. His last show will be in 2015. By the time the show is over, he would have been hosting it for 22 years. The show has won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Series, six times. 

David is one of the most iconic late night hosts and his interviews are almost always iconic.  Even Barack Obama has paid tribute to the man. 

Here's a list of some of David's most iconic shows

Bill Murray Episode (1993)

March 1994 episode featuring Madonna

September 17, 2001 following the September 11 attacks in a show that featured Dan Rather, Regis Philbin, The Boys' Choir of Harlem, and Odetta—it was "hailed by the New York Daily News as 'one of the purest, most honest and important moments in TV history'."

On October 1, 2009 he revealed that he had been the target of an extortion attempt.

On October 29, 2012 the show was filmed without an audience due to Hurricane Sandy, which prompted the Late Show staff to send the audience home to safety.

Now, who will replace him?
