David Letterman to Retire From The 'Late Show' in 2015

Suspense is dead because Twitter killed it. Surprisingly, R.E.M. bassist Mike Mills overheard that Late Show host David Letterman will be announcing his retirement in 2015 Thursday evening.

The A.V. Club broke the news and hinted to Letterman's inevitable retirement in the past. Variety posted a transcript of Letterman's announcement, so try to act shocked when you watch the Youtube video tomorrow morning.

So, who will fill the king's shoes after 22 years late talk show hosting at CBS? Craig Ferguson has been slaving away and working hard on the Late, Late Show. Jimmy Kimmel has been Letterman's biggest fan boy, but he's doing good work at ABC. I think Chris Hardwick would make a good host, but that's just me.
