David Letterman has picked the date he'll say goodbye on CBS.
The 67-year-old star will host his final Late Show on CBS on May 20.
"David Letterman has given to all of us a remarkable legacy of achievement and creative brilliance that will never be forgotten," said Leslie Moonves, president and CEO of the CBS Corporation. "It's going to be tough to say goodbye, but I know we will all cherish the shows leading up to Dave’s final broadcast in May."

Case in point: Stephen Colbert, David Letterman's Late Night successor, revealed Tuesday night he once turned down an internship with the Late Show because it didn't pay.
He's done pretty well since then, however.

And the No. 1 reason late-night will feel a lot more lonely ...
David Letterman, 66, announced Thursday that he is retiring after more than three decades of making people laugh after their bedtimes.
The funnyman, who began in 1982 on Late Night with David Letterman on NBC before moving to the Late Show with David Letterman on CBS, told the audience at Thursday's taping that he will leave next year.
He said he broke the news earlier to CBS CEO Leslie Moonves. "I said, 'Leslie, it's been great, you've been great, and the network has been great, but I'm retiring.'"

Seth Meyers is preparing to take the reins of Late Night from Jimmy Fallon when the latter moves to The Tonight Show, and Fallon had his successor on the show Tuesday night for an important tradition: the passing of the Late Night pickle.
This isn't just Fallon being Fallon, however: Apparently it's a real, longstanding Late Night tradition. David Letterman's staff gave the pickle to Conan O'Brien when he inherited the show, and O'Brien gave it to Fallon when he took over.

No star ever seemed quite as delighted to play himself as Peter O'Toole. The actor, who died Sunday at the age of 81, earned innumerable accolades for his stage and screen work, but just as important in cementing the image of Peter O'Toole in the public consciousness were his decades of talk-show appearances, nearly all of them performed through a smirk, a twinkle, and just as often, a large amount of vodka.
