Since his FX show returns this coming Monday, Louis C.K. is making the usual late night show rounds; tonight he visited Letterman. The two discussed all the hats Louie wears while making his series (writer, director, editor, producer, actor), and the comedian said of them all, he’d give up acting first. Then he offered Dave the job, “You wanna do it, ‘cause you’re gonna be…uh…” I’ll let you guess Letterman’s answer. After politely complimenting Stephen Colbert, Louie says what we’re all thinking, “The fact that you’re leaving basically sucks balls, I think.” Grabbing one of his ever-handy index cards, Dave makes note of that historical phrase. Watch.

Indeed, it TOTALLY SUCKS BALLS. We’ll so miss you, Dave.

Cindy Davis, (Twitter) may be sniffling *and* looking forward to Louie.

    We’ll so miss you, Dave. Not really.

    OK, Pajiba... the pop up ads have gotten way out of hand. I can't even see what I'm typing, much less any of the actual site content. Fix now.

    Ohhhh, I dunno. I still fondly remember the very first "Late Night with David Letterman" show, back when I was in college and would stay up late to study with the TV on low for background noise. Dave was so effortlessly cool. His years at NBC and the first couple of years at CBS were so amazing that it's been hard to watch him become an indifferent, crabby old grandpa. He still has his moments, and he seemed to get a second wind after his heart surgery a few years back, but I can't help but think that he should have quit shortly after the surgery. I'm sorry to lose "The Colbert Report," but it's time for new blood, and Stephen Colbert will be terrific.
