I knew it was going to happen sooner or later. Good old David Letterman is going to retire sometime in 2015. Whenever I was asked, “Leno or Letterman?” the answer was always Letterman. By far. He is one of a kind and I’m going to be sad when he hangs it up.
Now, of course, the media world is trying to guess who will replace Dave. Apparently, Stephen Colbert is the name that’s coming up the most. I like Colbert just fine, but his too well known conservative persona on “The Colbert Report” may get in the way of being a regular talk show host.
Here’s a thought. Why not Chelsea Handler? Her contract is going to be up with the E network and she’s made it clear she’s not going to renew it. Why not put an edgy female in Letterman’s chair?
That would be a bold move. I know. Probably ain’t gonna happen.
