Letterman, CBS sign 'Late Show' through 2015

David Letterman will remain on late-night TV at least through 2015, CBS announced Friday.

Letterman characteristically cracked wise about his new deal with CBS President and CEO Les Moonves.

"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," Letterman said in a CBS news release.

Letterman debuted his late-night show on NBC on February 1, 1982, making comical top 10 lists and "stupid pet tricks" part of pop culture.

He moved to CBS and "The Late Show with David Letterman" on Aug 30, 1993.

    "Well, I finaly retired my old car", said the old man. His pal ask, "Did you junk it or trade it in?" "Naw nothing like that, I put four new Michelins on it."

    Good afternoon chrissy

    Yeah , this "storm ?" turned out to be much ado about nothing. We are getting a rain shower and a little thunder right now, but not even a breeze to go along with it. And yeah, I saw all that snow and the tornados and what not. Really crazy on that snow so early in the season. I understand there was thunder and lighting with all that snow. Now that "is" weird.

    When you listen to the radio do you call the station and tell them that the style of music that they play is stupid? Or is that just something we do on the Internet in America to try to hurt each others feelings?

    How about you ? If all of you ( your alter egos that is ) do agree, then it shows that humor, in whatever form, is totally subjective, depending on the individual.

    Yea we got the the thunder, lightening, rain and flash floods here too @ bobcat. And true, being a weatherman is comparable to Congress. You don't have to really DO anything just talk, and even then you don't have to be accurate but you still get that paycheck. Lol yup sounds like congress to me.

    So @ rupert, does that mean you've gotta be a weeping willow?

    A few days before his proctological exam, a one eyed man accidentally
    swallowed his glass eye. He was worried for a while, but there were no
    ill effects, so he forgot about it.
    Once he was in the doctor's office, the man followed instructions,
    undressed, and bent over. The first thing the proctologist saw when he
    looked up the man's butt was that eye staring right back at him.
    "You know, " said the doctor, "you really have to learn to trust me."

      Another funny one from @bobcat. I'm glad to hear that storm turned out to be minor. You are safe, that's important. Bedtime for me, Good Night.
