Following Jay Leno‘s second ousting at NBC for a younger model, David Letterman‘s finding himself losing a young model to a younger model. Yeesh.

Though Letterman’s “Late Show” has been the home of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit cover reveal for the past six years, the magazine will be celebrating the 50th anniversary of its infamous cover elsewhere. ABC revealed on Monday (Feb. 10) that “Jimmy Kimmel Live” would be handling the exclusive reveal on Thursday’s episode. (It’s worth noting that Letterman is dark this week)

Additionally, this year’s cover model will sit down with Kimmel in studio for an exclusive late-night interview on Feb. 17. The Swimsuit issue will be available across all platforms and on newsstands on Feb. 18.
