David Letterman is making a return to late-night TV — but not at his old CBS stomping grounds.
The former Late Show host will appear as a guest on Jimmy Kimmel Live during a week of shows taped from Brooklyn that will air Oct. 16-20, ABC announced on Wednesday. The guest appearance marks Letterman’s second visit to Kimmel, the first being in 2012.
Letterman’s longtime bandleader Paul Shaffer will also sit in with house band Cleto and the Cletones for all five shows.
