Doctors say Letterman underwent emergency quintuple bypass surgery after an angiogram found one of his arteries was seriously constricted. A spokesperson says the procedure went smoothly and David Letterman is expected to make a full recovery. The Late Show host has often joked about his health, especially his high cholesterol level. For a month, he even went on an oat bran diet, complaining nightly about the taste of the stuff. CBS says the network will air re-runs of the Late Show until Letterman gets back on his feet. That won't be soon enough for many of his fans.
