Can you find the Celtics homerism awkwardly wedged into Simpkins's Letterman tribute?

I havent read this lol but I am enjoying all the talk of who will replace dave. Thye should just cancel the show, in my opinion. Alright.
PS: I will never like July 27th. It will always be the day Reggie died. I just hate this day. True Celtic fans know what I mean.

I think I heard Cowherd say that as well, maybe it's an ESPN thing. A couple people on twitter bitched that it's going to be him cuz he's a MAWG.

And if this wasn’t interesting enough, you have my old boss, Jimmy Kimmel, battling the following obstacles:

Kimmel makes this more interesting in absolutely no possible fucking way.

Mashable (or some site) said it's Colbert. His contract runs out at the end of this year. Gives him some time off, maybe make some appearances and distance himself from the "Colbert" persona, and then be ready to settle in when Dave leaves. It makes sense.

To everyone’s delight, Letterman grabbed first place for about 18 months


He treats this like it's sports. I could say, to everyone's delight, the Seahawks won the Super Bowl. I guarantee you there aren't 1,000 people in the world who care about this who are unaffiliated with one of the two shows. More people prefer Leno. That's been a fact for nearly 20 years. It doesn't mean that people are stupid, but that Bill is in the minority of those who watch late night television variety programming. Get over it.

Who needs to stay up in to the early hours watching this shit anymore, if anything good happens you can watch the clip on your phone on the way to work the next day.

Didn't read the column. Did he mention the obstacle of Jimmy being a talentless schmuck? Even Leno was funny once upon a time /people.

Well, tbf, Bill Hicks said that and I tend to take that man at his word:

some douche on fb wrote:WOW! The Late NIght Wars were changing forces. CBS brought a cannon, army and nuclear force with Colbert and NBC brought a butter knife with unfunny "ironic" lip synch skits better left in 1987 named JImmy Fallon. I have never seen a network bitch slap another like CBS did to NBC today! They have a year to promote this and were able to hire from within the company.For those of you who laugh off the "wacky dances" and never saw The Colbert Report- I can just say the two aren't even in the same league! Colbert is one of the brightest political parody minds in comedy! His show is brilliant! I am excited about this move as long as they let him be him. My DVR is set for Colbert every night and has been for years. He will be the king of 11:30!

Seems like a dumb idea. No one really knows who Stephen Colbert is. He's the one who will be hosting the show, and not his schticky character. Jon Stewart would have been the better choice.

Stewart would have had to take a pay cut.
