David Letterman announced that he will be retiring. First impressions? Reactions?
A constant on late night TV since 1982, does Letterman's announced departure sadden you? Or, do you think the time is right? Perhaps, you feel his relevancy had already diminished. Whatever your thoughts... share them
I always liked Dave, being from the East Coast he was "our" guy (Carson, and later Leno, were too "Hollywood.")
I haven't watched his show regularly since the early 90s when he first made the switch to CBS. His "Top Ten" was "appointment viewing" back then.
First Jay Leno hangs it up, and now Dave ...it really is the end of an era!!
I think the timing is right. With Jay Leno gone Dave is the last of a generation still in the late night wars. Both Jimmy Fallon and Jimmy Kimmel are beating his ratings numbers on regular basis. It's time for him and CBS to pass the baton on to the next generation.
I'd say the time is right. It's a new era for late night shows and Dave is the last of the old breed. That said I will be interested to see who takes over his time slot. I've always been a fan of Craig Ferguson and he seems like a natural fit, but there are so many other options who knows...

This has been an anticlimactic week for GOP candidate news.First Chris Christie, governor of NJ, announced 2012 is not his time.Now former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has announced she's not running, either. but will remain "unfettered."This race is getting more boring every day.*yawn.*

There is a new story out about a supposed jihad terrorist who wants Letterman's head because of jokes he made about a Bin Laden associate. Well, I think it's safe to say that we have officially won the war on terror. If terrorists are worried that much about Letterman, I think we are...
