CBS has managed to keep David Letterman around for the next few years.
On Friday (Oct. 4), the network announced that it and Worldwide Pants were extending Letterman’s contract as host of the “Late Show with David Letterman” through 2015. “There is only one Dave, and we are extremely proud that he continues to call CBS ‘home,'” Les Moonves, president of CBS, said in a statement.
“Les and I had a lengthy discussion, and we both agreed that I needed a little more time to fully run the show into the ground,” Letterman added in typical Dave fashion.
This year, Letterman and his “Late Show” reached a milestone 20 years on CBS. Since its debut in 1993, the show has been honored with nine Emmy Awards, including six for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Program, and an impressive 73 Emmy nominations.
