Looks like David Letterman may be sticking around late night after all.
The “Late Show” host has been in talks with CBS to extend his contract for a while, but it looks like a final deal should be solidified in the near future.
The New York Times reports:According to executives who have been involved in discussions with Mr. Letterman‘s production company, Worldwide Pants, a deal to remain on the air until 2014 is imminent.
Last year, buzz swarmed about the long-time host bidding adieu to his show in the next few years.
If Letterman‘s deal does go through 2014, he will surpass the 30-year run of idol Johnny Carson as the longest running late-night host in history.
Drew Barrymore is so happy with news, she may just do this again.
