As Seth Myers prepares to take over Late Night next year, which David Letterman once hosted, the veteran host offered one major pointer to the Saturday Night Live scribe.
The Late Show host started out his late-night career in 1982 as the follow-up to Johnny Carson, but prior to Letterman's arrival, Late Night went by another name. Due to legal reasons that no longer apply the name had to be changed, but now Letterman thinks it's time to revert back to the original title.
"When we took over the show years ago, it was called The Tomorrow Show," Letterman explained. "So you had the Today show, The Tonight Show and The Tomorrow Show ... Why don't you just change it back? I would love it if it was The Tomorrow Show."
"I wish we talked yesterday. We just printed the mugs," joked Seth.
Watch the entire interview on Late Show with David Letterman tonight at 11:35/10:35c on CBS.
