Letterman Set Dumpster Bound as Soon as Final Show Wrapped

Large chunks of "The Late Show with David Letterman's" set ended up in the dumpsters outside of the Ed Sullivan Theater in New York City on Thursday, upsetting some longtime fans of the show.

The New York Post reported that dumpsters brimmed over with parts of the bridge that made up the "Late Show" scenery behind the late night talk show host desk and audience seats. More than a dozen fans were there to swoop up recognizable memorabilia.

"I can't believe they’re just demolishing the whole thing. It's shocking," Stephanie Strausz, of Manhattan, who said she sat in the second row Wednesday for Letterman's final show. "It should go in the Smithsonian, not the dumpster."

Some specific pieces of the set were taken by Letterman and parts of Paul Shaffer's CBS orchestra podium are going to him, noted Deadline.com. Various entertainment institutions had requested parts of the set in advance and those things will be divided up and delivered.

The Post reported that Letterman's on-air desk was handled with care and covered in bubble wrap for a trip to the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C.

The rest of the unclaimed set, though, made its way into the dumpster, causing a stir on social media.
