During David Letterman’s 33 years in late night television, he hosted 6,028 shows, talked to 19,932 guests, and counted down 5,614 Top Ten lists. Now that he’s retired, he doesn’t have to make any more lists. We did one for him: Hours ahead of his last show on Wednesday, ANIMAL asked fans waiting in line what Letterman should do with all that time off. The answers we got were amusing to imagine. Sure, he could spend more time with his family, but wouldn’t it be more fun for him to wrestle a bear?
