This month’s edition is unsurprisingly Letterman-heavy. David
Letterman ended his 33-year late-night run on a ratings high note, as
nearly 14 million people tuned into his last show. His retirement gave
the media an opportunity to reflect on the late-night format and its
place in American culture.
As for us Colbert fans, we are now entering the final stretch before The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s
September premiere. The Ed Sullivan Theater has been cleared and is
undergoing renovations; the staff has already started working on the
show; Stephen made his first official appearance as Late Show host at the CBS upfront presentation; and the promotion for the show should be starting any time now (the sooner the better!).
