Letterman ends his show tonight
But Letterman was never a draw to me. You could say that his humor was too dry, subversive, or whatever for me to appreciate, and I may agree with that. You could say that he was too edgy for me to understand. You could say all that, and I wouldn't argue with you.
So why am I sitting here waiting for Letterman's final episode? Because I'm a pop-culture junkie, and this episode is going to be a Trivial Pursuit question some day. Also, because I appreciate the end of an era, and this certainly is one. Even Brian is staying awake for this, you guys. It's a big deal, kinda. Tomorrow, I won't miss him anymore than I have over the last however many years he's been on television. But he's a legend who's leaving the arena.
Is it wrong that I'm super excited for Colbert? I'll totally watch that show.
