David Letterman, 66, the longest-running host in late-night television history, announced that he will retire from his CBS show in 2015, the latest shakeup in the late-night lineup.
Immediately, Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Greta Van Susteren, all hosts of Fox News Programs, competed with one another as they applied for the late-night position
O'Reilly seemed to speak for all of the Fox News hosts when he said:
"Of course I'm an excellent comic. On my show I've done hundreds of hilarious interviews asking really dumb questions to elicit viewer laughs, presented stupid, outrageous political surveys and polls to tickle the funny bone, and offered disgraceful, appalling ideas as if they were 'facts.'"
"This is comical, hysterical stuff. Every one knows I'm a very funny guy. I expect to replace Letterman right after CBS interviews me," he said.
