The competition between late night television shows has always been fierce, however David Letterman couldn’t help but show some love and respect to Jay Leno as he made his last appearance as host of “The Tonight Show.”
The “Late Show” host began, “Well, as with the world, tonight is a big night for change in late night television. Our friend Jay Leno [has spent] 22 years as host of ‘The Tonight Show.’”
In a very rare opportunity, the public will get to hear late-night talk show host David Letterman open up about his own life, including the infamous sex scandal in an interview with Oprah Winfrey .
On January 6th, the daytime icon will host the late-night mainstay on "Oprah's Next Chapter" for an in-depth conversation that will include the 2009 affair with a staffer that resulted in an extortion plot and public disclosure.
Giving his own personal take on the horrible tragedy in Newtown, Connecticut last Friday (December 14), David Letterman shared a seven-minute impromptu monologue on “The Late Show” last night (December 17).
The talk show host began, "It makes me so sad. [These Christmas decorations are] really for kids. You think about this horrifying circumstance. What part of that do you think about that's going to make any difference? Do you think about the kids in the class? That's too awful to think about."
