David Letterman: Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel Didn't 'Push Me Out' of a Job

Originally posted 04/29/2015 10:40AM

The landscape of late night has inarguably changed since David Letterman began hosting Late Night in 1982 and then Late Show in 1993, but he's not ending his 33-year run on a bitter note.

In an interview with The New York Times, Letterman, 68, is not upset about how the format he helped create has changed so drastically with the entry of energetic, Internet-savvy hosts like Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon.

"They didn't push me out," he said. "I'm 68. If I was 38, I'd probably still be wanting to do the show," Letterman added, going on to say that the format – "an older guy in a suit" – certainly still seemed "viable" when Jay Leno was still on late night. However, after Leno left The Tonight Show last year, Letterman was suddenly "surrounded by Jimmys," he told the Times.

}] Poor Hawkeye: he's not exactly the superstar of the Marvel comic universe. And Jeremy Renner is clearly tired of his superhero not being considered as super as his fellow Avengers – Iron Man, the Hulk and Captain America.

So Renner sought to set the record straight on The Tonight Show on Tuesday night, singing a song in character as the Avengers: Age of Ultron archer.

"There's one guy on the Avengers who sometimes gets overlooked; he's still great but it's hard to compete with those other guys," said Jimmy Fallon, introducing the musical number. "So here now to shed light on his own strengths and abilities, to the tune of Ed Sheeran's 'Thinking Out Loud,' is Hawkeye."
