CBS books prime-time Letterman highlight show

NEW YORK (AP) — David Letterman is getting a prime-time goodbye from the folks at CBS.

The network said that comic Ray Romano will host a 90-minute tribute to Letterman's television career. It will air on Monday, May 4 starting at 9:30 p.m. EDT.

Letterman will retire May 20 after 6,028 late-night shows over 33 years on CBS and NBC.

CBS said the special will "mine the video vault" of highlights from some of his best interviews and comedy, including his signature Top Ten lists and stupid human and pet tricks.
