Date Set for David Letterman's Final Late Show Broadcast

David Letterman Primetime Special

Start compiling Top 10 Lists of things you’re gonna miss once David Letterman has hosted his last Late Show, because the date has now been set for his swan song: May 20, 2015.

In making the announcement today (via a press release), CBS president/CEO Leslie Moonves acknowledged that “it’s going to be tough to say goodbye, but I know we will all cherish the shows leading up to Dave’s final broadcast in May.”

That may be putting it mildly, considering that the beloved funnyman is the longest-tenured late-night host in TV history (breaking even Johnny Carson’s record). A start date for the five-time Emmy winner’s successor, Stephen Colbert, is expected to be revealed shortly.

So, who do you think will turn up on Letterman’s couch before all is said and done? Who do you HOPE will stop by for one final visit? Hit the comments with your predictions/suggestions.
