The end of the Letterman Era

Developing Story, Will be updated post episode over the next two days


On Wednesday, May 19th, 2015 David Letterman’s record-breaking 33 years in late-night television will come to an end. Although he lasted 3 years longer than his idol, Johnny Carson, Letterman isn’t quite going out on top. His legacy of comedic news for those of us who enjoy substance in our television was snuffed out by hosts that thrive on viral videos and comedians masking as political gurus. But this didn’t stop our late night hero. He’s going out with a bang, and it’s already begun with a tremendous run of shows over the past two weeks, including some of his favorite guests (Howard Stern, Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, Norm Macdonald) and muscial acts (Eddie Vedder’s Better Man)

But how will Letterman close his final two shows?

It’s the question that everyone’s asking, and with question comes speculation, but I for one think that it’s ridiculous to be coming up with all of these predictions and speculations. Why is it that we can’t just be patient? The end of the Letterman era isn’t something we should be speculating about, I for one am confident that whatever Dave comes up with, it’s going to leave us with some emotions.
