CBS and Worldwide Pants Incorporated announced today that David Letterman’s final broadcast of his “Late Show” will air on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on CBS. He will be replaced by Stephen Colbert, whose Comedy Central show “The Colbert Report” ends its run on December 18.

“David Letterman has given to all of us a remarkable legacy of achievement and creative brilliance that will never be forgotten,” said Leslie Moonves, President and CEO of the CBS Corporation. “It’s going to be tough to say goodbye, but I know we will all cherish the shows leading up to Dave’s final broadcast in May.”

The longest-tenured late night talk show host at more than 32 years, Letterman, announced his retirement on the April 3 broadcast after hosting CBS’s “Late Show” for 22 years, and 32 years altogether as a late night host. Since premiering on August 30, 1993, the comedy talk panel program has scored 73 Emmy Award nominations, winning nine. Letterman’s late night TV hosting debut came on Feb. 1, 1982 with the premiere of NBC’s groundbreaking “Late Night with David Letterman.” As of May 20, 2015, Letterman will have hosted 6,028 total episodes of both “Late Night” and “Late Show.”

“The Late Show with David Letterman” is a production of Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Barbara Gaines, Matt Roberts, Jude Brennan, Maria Pope and Rob Burnett are the executive producers. Jerry Foley is the director.

POLL RESULTS: Who’s Your Favorite Character in Peter Jackson’s Middle-Earth Saga?

As I head out the door to see the final Middle-earth film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, I closed our poll on “Favorite Middle-Earth Character” and was stunned.  Gandalf had the lead the entire way with no one even close, but as the poll closed, Frodo had in the same underdog way that got him up Mount Doom, passed a puzzled Ian McKellan.  Frodo Baggins the gold; Gandalf the Grey the silver and Legolas Greenleaf the bronze.  Thanks to all for voting; we’ll have a review up of the final film by the weekend!

My Favorite Scene: 12 Angry Men (1957) “Turn Your Back”

Nearly 60 years after its initial theatrical release, 12 Angry Men remains one of the most powerful, wisest and brilliantly composed motion pictures of all-time.  Sydney Lumet’s adaptation of the stage play has 99% of the film in one room.  It’s 12 guys just yapping at each other for  90 minutes, but yet it flies by as fast as any thriller ever made.

The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt Delayed Again

Those of us looking forward to the final adventure of The Witcher – Geralt – of Rivia, are going to have to wait 12 weeks longer than we were hoping to get our hands on a copy of Witcher III: The Final Hunt.  I’m actually only bummed about this because it leaves the beginning of 2015 kind of a wasteland for gamers and there’s usually at least one huge title to look forward to playing.  The Witcher III will now be coming out in May, and given that the world is 35 times larger than the enormous one in The Witcher II: Assassin of Kings, I’d rather they take the time to get everything working perfectly.  A letter from The Board of CD PROJEKT SA to gamers is below explaining the delay.

10 Finalists Announced for Visual Effects Oscar



The ten finalists for the Visual F/X Oscar have been announced.  The list will be winnowed down to five by the time nominations are announced on January 17, 2015.  It’s surreal to start talking about Oscars when there really hasn’t been anything this year to laud.

Here are your ten finalists:

Captain America: The Winter Soldier
Dawn of the Planet of the Apes
Guardians of the Galaxy
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb
Transformers: Age of Extinction
X-Men: Days of Future Past

To me, there’s no contest here.  Dawn of the Planet of the Apes took motion capture to entirely new level.  What Andy Serkis and the other apes did was nothing short of revolutionary.  I’d love to see The Hobbit get some kind of recognition, but the Academy dismissed it after the first film.
