When Linus Met Sally and Other Famous Fictional Couples

VALENTINE'S DAY
You have to be pretty hard-hearted to not get a least a little lump in your thought when you think of some of fictional couples. But have you ever stopped to think just how these crazy lovebirds ever got together? The answers may surprise you.

As the original host of Late Night on NBC and The Late Show on CBS, David Letterman has announced that he will appear in a new, yet-to-be-named TV series for Netflix. However, don’t expect him to return to the late night desk anytime soon. Instead, he will appear in six hour-long episodes that combine two of his favorite interests: in-depth conversations with extraordinary people, and in-the-field segments expressing his curiosity and humor. Netflix says that in each episode, Letterman will conduct a long-form conversation with a singular guest - and will also explore topics on his own, away from the studio.

Said Letterman, “I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix. Here's what I have learned, if you retire to spend more time with your family, check with your family first. Thanks for watching, drive safely.”

"Just meeting David Letterman was a thrill; imagine how exciting it is for me to announce that we will be working together," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix. “David Letterman is a true television icon, and I can’t wait to see him out in the wild, out from behind the desk and interviewing the people he finds most interesting. We’ll have to see if he keeps the beard.”

In 33 years on late-night television, David Letterman hosted 6,028 episodes of Late Night and The Late Show and is the longest-running late-night broadcaster in American history. His new show is scheduled to premiere sometime in 2018.
