Several Injuries Reported in Seven-Alarm Bronx Fire
Last Thursday, a fire at a residential building near Bronx Zoo killed 12 people . All of the residents of the building were believed to have been evacuated.

It will be the first talk show Letterman has hosted since he stepped down from CBS' "Late Show with David Letterman" in May 2015.

Comedian Stephen Colbert has since replaced Letterman on the "Late Show". "Then I didn't have a show for a long time - and I can't tell you how great it is to be out of the damn house".

David Letterman had said in August that he would be back in 2018 on Netflix. In each hour-long episode Letterman will have a long-form conversation with the guest across a range of topics.

Sarandos said he hopes Letterman's show will attract more subscribers.
