David Letterman Greeted With Standing Ovation At The Ed Sullivan Theater In Return To ‘The Late Show’ After More Than 8 Years Since Exit
David Letterman received an extended round of applause in his big return to the Ed Sullivan Theater, home of The Late Show. The former late-night show host came back to his old stomping grounds and was greeted with a standing ovation from the audience in attendance, including his successor Stephen Colbert.
“Ladies and gentlemen, my guest tonight certainly needs no introduction,” Colbert said as he introduced Letterman. “Please welcome back to the Ed Sullivan Theater — Mr. David Letterman.”
