Look, I realize that you have a new show to do with Stephen Colbert but wow I guess I wasn’t expecting to see pictures today of the Letterman set being torn down and taken away. I look through these & feel like a part of my childhood and my life has died.
When I was a kid, I would watch Johnny Carson. Yes, that’s how old I am. But there was also Letterman. And I stuck with Dave for a long time. I think his show was lacking in the end but HE was still the same Dave I loved. I’m not sure if that makes any sense but that’s how I feel. I would also watch Conan and was a big fan of his and now I like Kimmel and Fallon is growing on me. The things he does with celebrities are great. I think Kimmel is a little more like a Lettermen and that’s why I really like him. But will any of these guys have the staying power that Letterman had? I guess we will see. I respect him for all he’s done and for being able to hang it up after all these years. That must be a tough decision to make and I know I am dreading having to make it at the end of my career.
