David Letterman retires from 'Late Show'

David Letterman is putting down the mic.

There's a coming changing of the guard at the Ed Sullivan Theater.
David Letterman has announced that this will be his last year as host of The Late Show with David Letterman on CBS.
So, just one more year of Stupid Pet Tricks, trips to see Rupert Jee at the Hello Deli, of that playful banter with Paul.
No word on who'll replace Letterman.
Maybe Jay Leno's interested?
