David Letterman: A Life on Television special will air May 4 on CBS
CBS announced Thursday that it will air David Letterman: A Life on Television in primetime, a little over two weeks before Letterman signs off from The Late Show for good. The 90-minute retrospective, set for May 4, will be hosted by Ray Romano.
According to the press release, A Life on Television will “mine the video vault”—meaning fans can expect interview highlights, a look at Letterman’s best Top Ten Lists, Stupid Pet and Human Tricks and more. Letterman’s take on world events, including his Sept. 17, 2001 broadcast following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, will also be featured on the show.
Letterman’s last Late Show is set for May 20. Guests expected to appear during his final run of shows include George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, Howard Stern and Tom Hanks.
