CBS gives Late Show host David Letterman two-year extension
(REUTERS) - United States (US) television network CBS has extended its contract with late night talk show host David Letterman through 2015.
Letterman's Late Show With David Letterman has earned nine Emmy Awards during the 20 years it has aired on the broadcast network, a unit of CBS Corp.
"There is only one Dave, and we are extremely proud that he continues to call CBS 'home,'" Leslie Moonves, CBS Corp president and chief executive, said in a statement on Friday.
"Les and I had a lengthy discussion, and we both agreed that I needed a little more time to fully run the show into the ground," the 66-year-old Letterman added.
