While NBC plans its next move of Jimmy Fallon into Jay Leno’s Tonight Show slot and Jimmy Kimmel continues to take hold of a the number two spot in late night, CBS is standing pat with David Letterman for at least two more years.
“There is only one Dave, and we are extremely proud that he continues to call CBS ‘home,’” said CBS Corporation CEO Les Moonves said in a press release.
Letterman’s contract was set to expire in Fall 2014, the same time that Jay Leno’s NBC deal ends.
The Tonight Show is still currently the leader in late night ratings according to the latest Nielsen numbers. But Jimmy Fallon is still slated to take over as the franchise’s in February 2014.
