BILL MURRAY, THE FIRST GUEST TO VISIT CBS's "LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN" WHEN IT PREMIERED AUGUST 30, 1993, RETURNS TO CELEBRATE THE SHOW'S 20TH ANNIVERSARY ON THE NETWORK, THURSDAY, AUGUST 29!

Bill Murray, the first guest to visit CBS's LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN when it premiered on August 30, 1993, reminisces with Letterman when the actor helps celebrate the LATE SHOW's 20 years on the CBS Television Network, Thursday, Aug. 29 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT).

Murray, who was not only the first guest on the LATE SHOW when it premiered in 1993, but also the inaugural guest on Letterman's "Late Night" show when it debuted in 1982, will make his 26th appearance on the CBS late night talk show.

As of August 29, 2013, the multiple Emmy Award-winning LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN will have broadcast 3,897 episodes and four primetime specials in its 20 years on CBS. Since its debut on the Network on August 30, 1993, the critically-acclaimed show has been honored with nine Emmy Awards, including six for "Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Program," and a staggering 73 Emmy nominations.

Over the past 20 years, the groundbreaking LATE SHOW has remained one of the funniest and most creative shows on television. The broadcast, hosted by Letterman, a pioneer in the late night talk show field beginning with the 1982 premiere of his iconic "Late Night with David Letterman," remains the longest running late night television host in history at 31 years and counting. In addition to its numerous Emmy Awards, the LATE SHOW was named Program of the Year at the 1994 Television Critics Awards and, in 2012, Letterman received the Career Achievement Award from the TCA. In December 2012, Letterman was an honoree at the prestigious "35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors," which recognizes recipients for their lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts in dance, music, theater, opera, motion pictures and television. Letterman was awarded the prestigious Johnny Carson Award for Comedic Excellence at Comedy Central's first annual "The Comedy Awards" in March 2011. He has won two American Comedy Awards as Funniest Male Performer in a Television Series and a Foundation Award from the International Radio and Television Society for his "extraordinary domination in late-night television." Letterman was also honored as "Favorite Late Night Talk Show Host" at the 31st Annual People's Choice Awards in 2005.

The LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN is a production of Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Barbara Gaines, Matt Roberts, Jude Brennan, Maria Pope, Eric Stangel, Justin Stangel and Rob Burnett are the executive producers.
