Nope it’s not The Late Show with David Letterman, but a profile of the world-famous late night host, looking back on his career.
Letterman is a former TV weatherman who once predicted hail stones “the size of canned hams. As a struggling stand-up comic and TV writer his guest shots on shows such as The Gong Show caught the attention of Johnny Carson.
As a result, he eventually became the permanent substitute host for The Tonight Show.
When Carson retired, however, Letterman lost a battle for the coveted seat to Jay Leno and he left NBC, landing at CBS and his own late night show, the celebrated Late Show with David Letterman.
Along the way, Letterman has overcome a determined stalker, emergency quintuple bypass surgery, and several failed relationships, before finding happiness in his marriage to longtime girlfriend Regina Lasko and the birth of their son, Harry Joseph.
It airs Thursday, September 17, at 9.30pm on the Bio Channel.
