Difficult though saying goodbye to David Letterman’s Late Show proved, Stephen Colbert has slowly started to win us over in promotion of his own late-night future. That said, CBS may have nuked the ground from orbit, taking down every single Letterman clip from YouTube and its website, so what gives?

Tonight at 11:35PM, for the very last time, a new episode of The Late Show with David Letterman airs on CBS. Even though I stopped regularly watching Letterman years ago, I, like a lot of folks of my generation, are approaching the occasion with a heavy, nostalgic heart. David Letterman was a late-night institution for over 30 years; my entire life as a conscious human being. I cannot remember a time before David Letterman. In a changing world, he was a constant, as certain as death and taxes.

T-minus one week and counting until the very last Late Show with David Letterman and the tributes are coming faster and faster, and sadder and sadder. I hope on the last installment of Stupid Pet Tricks one of the tricks is a shih tzu shedding a single tear for the end of this venerable late-night franchise, which comes to a close on May 20. It’s only fitting.

The rules are simple (in fact, they're pretty much contained within the game's actual name) when it comes to Billy Eichner's 'Celebrity Child or Kentucky Derby Winner?' The 'Billy on the Street' host will name a particular name, and then you need to guess if it belongs to the child of a celebrity or a race-winning pony. Along the way, the loud-mouthed host will use his trademark screaming ability to drive things right along, and if you can get through the tricky trivia and the ear-splitting growl, you can win a dollar for each correct answer.

This is what every talk-show appearance should really be like. Jason Segel hit 'The Late Show' last night to talk about some pretty basic bits -- how and why he lost weight for 'Sex Tape,' his theory on chip intake at Mexican restaurants, host David Letterman's wonderful pronunciation of "taco," and all that jazz -- before getting to the real meat of the appearance. The sandwich meat, if you will.
