Phelps to Host Late Night Talk Show

New York--

Michael Phelps, fresh from his record-shattering eighth gold medal in a single Olympics, announced at a press conference today that he will be hosting a late night talk show, to begin in November of this year.

The show, The Show with Michael Phelps, will feature Phelps as host, as well as bandleader and interview subject. David Letterman's Worldwide Pants will be producing the program.

"This kid is great," Letterman said. "And though he'll be taking my spot on CBS, its fine, because I hate CBS."

In fact, The Show With Michael Phelps will be simulcast on every major network and all cable channels in the United States, as well as channels in China, Kenya, Mexico, Canada, Iraq, Chile, and the Netherlands.

Cable channel Bravo TV announced an exclusive deal to air reruns of The Show With Michael Phelps from 7am-9am, though Bravo intends to focus entirely on Phelps's bare chest for the two-hour period.
