David Letterman shocked everyone today when he announced that he would be retiring in 2015.

The announcement was made during a taping of “Late Show with David Letterman.”

Letterman, 66, launched his late night show in 1993 at the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City and now someone is going to have to step into his very iconic shoes.

So, who?

Ellen DeGeneres has had a great run on daytime since starting “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” in 2003. She’s gotten the best guests and broken tons of news. She was also amazing at the 2014 Oscars. DeGeneres might be a curve ball here, but would be a great choice.

Life Imitating Art in “Louie,” it was between Louis C.K. and Jerry Seinfeld, both comedic legends to replace Letterman and both great choices in real life. They would both be witty, funny and keep the same tone Letterman built into an empire.

    I don't see him ever doing it, he's too real for late night network television. But when rules on censorship change for that time slot, and Millennials become more of a viewership, I can see him doing it to perfection.

    On the floor laughing, Ferguson is a natural and David Letterman sucks he is obsessed with talking about Karl Rove, Mitt Romney, or some other non baby killing Republican. I bet Ferguson didn't get the job of replacing David mainly because Craig is just not liberal flaky enough. I didn't watch Letterman, Carson was funny and Kimmel is just a young Letterman. Jay Leno and Craig Ferguson are the two best funny non politically one sided comedian talk show hosts. I can't stand Cobert, Conan, Hall is horrible. I will stop watching late night talk shows when Craig leaves December 31 - 2014

    Most of these are just wanna-bes. Most are not funny at all but they would fit right in with Letterman's political activism masquerading as humor.

    I don't like any of them for Letterman's replacement but Craig is the only genuinely funny person on the list who is also good at interviews.

    Seinfeld but he would probably cost too much.

    Chelsea Handler would be good. Whether you like her or not she could do the job.

    Ellen DeGeneres no way I think she's far more suited for daytime. Conan and Craig both have jobs and Louis C.K. I've never heard of.

    Seinfeld was good because of his co comedians, really I never thought Seinfeld was Top stand up comic, just average, but in a sitcom setting with other funny people he was very good.

    Actually I couldn't stand his sitcom.
    I now a lot of people liked it but it just didn't do it for me.

    Howard Stern. He is hilarious and edgy and not blatantly liberal as is Letterman. Will NOT miss him.

    I love Ellen DeGeneres, and that's why I say don't make her replace him. Her show is amazing, and well watched, she needs not leave that show.

    Ellen. Conan or Craig.
    I wouldn't mind one of those 3.
