Video: Watch David Letterman Make His Final Late Show Entrance

David Letterman‘s career as Late Show host won’t officially be over until 12:37 am Thursday morning — but you can watch part of his final broadcast now.

CBS has released a video of Letterman’s last-ever walk onto the Ed Sullivan Theater stage, where the host was met by an enthusiastic audience giving him a well-deserved standing ovation.

The entrance was completed, of course, by a warm musical welcome from Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra.

Letterman’s final Late Show airs tonight at 11:35 pm.

    Does anybody know if Stephen Colbert is going to make an appearance for Letterman’s Late Show farewell before he takes over the reins on September 8th?

  2. Bruce Padgett says:

    That would be nice, but in a recent interview Dave said he was surprised that Jon Stewart didn’t get the offer instead of Colbert. What’s really sad though is neither of those gentlemen can hold a candle to Dave, and that’s not meant as an insult. David Letterman is that good. It’s really going to hurt watching him tonight.

    Apparently the show is going to run at least 17 minutes longer than usual, so if you are planning to record it, you better add 30 minutes to your recording so you don’t miss the ending.

      How about a time slot on television featuring shows of Letterman’s Best for those fans who only discovered him in recent year’s?
