CBS wasted no time in kicking David Letterman to the curb. Just hours after Letterman said farewell after 33 years on late-night TV, Ed Sullivan Theater crews hauled off blocks of blue stage and hacked up pieces of the iconic New York City bridges that made up the set of the Late Show. Fans and passers-by gathered around a police barricade cordoning off the Ed Sullivan to watch workers unceremoniously chuck red theater chairs into an overflowing dumpster and take reciprocating saws to his miniature Brooklyn Bridge. The complete breakdown of the set is expected to take about a week. The George Washington Bridge appeared to be one of the few relics spared; it was carefully loaded into a van intact.
