"David Letterman is a late-night legend with an iconic show and Craig Ferguson continues to evolve the genre in exciting and innovative ways," said CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler. "These new agreements deliver ongoing high-quality entertainment for our audience and continued strength and stability for CBS in late night."

In another news, Letterman has had a sitdown with Keith Olbermann to talk about his recent departure from Current TV. In the interview which airs on the Tuesday, April 3 episode of "Late Show", the political commentator said, "I screwed up really big on this. Let's just start there. I thought we could do this. It's my fault that it didn't succeed in the sense that I didn't think the whole thing through."
