Letterman announced on his show that he is retiring in 2015 and the speculation as to who will be replacing him has already started.
It is interesting that Letterman picked 2015, because that is the same time a number of possible replacements contracts expire.
Comedy Central host Jon Stewart’s deal expires next year.
His buddy, Stephen Colbert’s agreement expires this year. CBS’ Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson is also up this year.
TBS late-night host Conan O’Brien and Bravo’s Andy Cohen are through next year. ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel? Yup, 2015.
Chelsea Handler has already said that she is shutting down her show. Oh, and a certain former Tonight Show host has a lot of free time on his hands, as well.
What about Piers Morgan? Ha ha...just kidding.
Any bets on who replaces Dave?
