David Letterman to Officially Sign Off From The Late Show on May 20th

(via Deadline)

We’re on the threshold of the tectonic plates of the late night talk show world shifting.

Next week, Craig Ferguson will end his run at The Late Late Show and James Corden will take over three months later on Mar. 9th at CBS.

Also, next week, Stephen Colbert will end his run at The Colbert Report and Larry Wilmore will premiere The Nightly Show on Jan. 19th at Comedy Central.

Today, CBS announced that David Letterman’s final day as host of The Late Show will be Wed. May 20th, which is oddly a Wednesday rather than the usual end of the week send off. 

So, this only leaves one date left for the next era of late night and that is when Stephen Colbert officially starts at The Late Show.
