Tradition Reigns On Final 'Late Show With David Letterman' Holiday Special

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) -- It was another sign of the end of an era on the "Late Show With David Letterman" Friday night.

As is tradition, Darlene Love performed "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)," on Letterman's final holiday special.

Other holiday show traditions include comedian Jay Thomas retelling his 'Lone Ranger' story, and throwing a football at a meatball atop a tree.

The late show host will retire next year after more than two decades on the air.

Letterman's last show will air on May 20. Stephen Colbert takes over later in the year.
