Thank you David Letterman for keeping me company while doing my homework late at night when I was in New York.
After 33 years in late night television, David Letterman is saying goodbye with three final broadcasts of the Late Show With David Letterman from May 20-22 at 11:45 PM.
The three-night event kicks off Wednesday, May 20 with a visit from Academy Award winner Tom Hanks, who first appeared with Letterman in Late Night on April 4, 1984.
This will be Hanks’ 60th total appearance with the host. Also, rock superstar Eddie Vedder will perform with Paul Shaffer and the CBS Orchestra.
Bill Murray, Letterman’s first guest on Late Night’s debut on Feb. 1, 1982, and his first guest on the Late Show’s August 30, 1993 premiere, makes his 44th overall and final appearance with the host on Thursday, May 21.
These shows all lead up to Letterman’s final Late Show broadcast on Friday, May 22, 2015, which will be an hour of surprises, memorable highlights, the show’s final Top Ten List, and more.
