David Letterman is set to make his return to The Late Show tonight, and the television industry is all abuzz about it. The last time Letterman was on The Late Show was his final episode as host, which was May 20, 2015.
Exactly eight and a half years later, Letterman returns to the Ed Sullivan Theater for the first time as a guest on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, as he is the main guest for the Monday, November 20, episode that airs at 11:35 pm ET/PT on CBS.
Letterman was the host of The Late Show from August 1993 to May 2015. Since leaving The Late Show, he has hosted the Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, where he does in-depth interviews with some of the biggest names in entertainment and culture, like Barack Obama, Jay-Z, Will Smith, Billie Eilish and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. The latest edition, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction season 4, is available to stream on Netflix right now along with the first three seasons.
