"Late Show With David Letterman" premiered on Aug. 30, 1993, the night before I began my freshman year at Wheeling High School. I can thank Dave, Paul, Biff and Co. for ensuring a life of insomnia. "Late Show" on CBS was among the most exciting shows on TV. It's been a long time since we could say that, but Letterman's departure from the airwaves on Wednesday after 33 years in late-night is no less impactful.
