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.
