Top 10 Replacements for David Letterman

By Ian Walker,

With the news of David Letterman’s retirement from Late Show coming in 2015, attention is immediately turned to the question of a successor. Letterman has held the 11:30 spot in CBS for over 20 years and whoever succeeds that chair has some big shoes to fill.

Unlike The Tonight Show, and its 60 year history, CBS’ late night run began with Letterman in 1993, and his iconic comic persona has been the face of the CBS late night brand since he started. Whoever takes the vacant seat behind the desk will not only have to fill a giant, Letterman-sized hole, but assume the face of the late night rival meant to tussle with the Jimmys (Fallon and Kimmel).

With all that being said, here is TheCelebrityCafe.com’s list of the Top 10 people who could take over for Letterman. If you agree or disagree with the choices or any of the placements, be sure to leave a comment below!
