CBS Extends Contracts For Letterman, Ferguson Through 2014

LOS ANGELES (CBS) — CBS has announced that it will extend contracts for late night stars David Letterman and Craig Ferguson.

They will be sticking with their respective hours — “Late Show” and “The Late Late Show” — through 2014.

Letterman is now set to become the longest-running late night talk show host in television history, surpassing Johnny Carson’s 30-year run.

Letterman, who turns 65 next week, began on NBC in 1982 with “Late Night” before switching to CBS in 1993.

The Scottish-born Ferguson, 49, had been a musician, writer and sitcom star when he took over “The Late Late Show” in 2005.
