President Barack Obama was one of the many people upset over the news that David Letterman will be retiring when his contract expires in 2015. "There are more than 10 reasons #DavidLetterman will be missed," the president tweeted from his official account. Obama has appeared on the Late Show seven times, and twice as president. Letterman’s old rival Jay Leno also commented on the retirement news, telling Extra, “Oh well you know, he and I [are] gonna do The Sunshine Boys on Broadway, so we're very excited about that.” Meanwhile, the Mayor of Los Angeles reacted to the news by writing a letter to CBS CEO Les Moonves trying to convince him to move the Late Show to Los Angeles once Letterman leaves. Finally, according to the Hollywood Reporter, CBS actually tried to woo The Daily Show’s John Oliver to the network last summer. They reportedly wanted him to take over the 12:30 am timeslot in the event Craig Ferguson decided not to renew his contract. In the end, Oliver chose to go to HBO, where his new show, Last Week Tonight, premieres April 27th.
