Decades ago, David Letterman was host of Late Night on NBC, ostensibly being groomed to take over The Tonight Show. As some of you might now, the gig went to Jay Leno and Dave then switched teams to CBS to host The Late Show only to go head-to-head w/Leno on a nightly basis. Of the late night rivalries, it was probably the biggest one that ever was and will ever be.
That being the case, David Letterman will return to be a guest on Late Night and appearing on NBC, which is a thing that many of us would never happen. David Letterman has only been a guest sparingly on Late Night during his tenure at The Late Show. Specifically, he appeared when a very young and inexperienced Conan O’Brien had just taken over Late Night and once when Fallon when pal Steve Martin was on the show.
With the rivalry with Leno well over and Letterman enjoying his post CBS career doing whatever he wants to do, we can only wonder what the hell Dave will talk about with Seth. Our guess is that they’ll probably start off with the beard.
