Denver Broncos quarterback and 2014 NFL MVP Peyton Manning will visit the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Monday, May 5 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
This will be Manning’s first talk show interview since Super Bowl XLVII on Feb. 2, 2014, when the Broncos were defeated by the Seattle Seahawks 43-8. This will be Manning’s fourth appearance on the LATE SHOW. He last visited the broadcast Feb. 13, 2007, after he was named Super Bowl XLI MVP when he led the Indianapolis Colts to the championship.

In addition, this season he helped lead the Broncos to the highest-scoring offense in NFL history with 606 points, becoming the first team to ever score more than 600 points in a season.
Also visiting the LATE SHOW Monday, May 5 is actress Shailene Woodley, who stars in the new film “The Fault in Our Stars,” which hits theaters June 6.
