David Letterman's Set Finds a New Home on The Chris Gethard Show!
Everyone, rest at ease! The set from The Late Show With David Letterman has been saved from demolition. It now rests in the hands of Fusion's The Chris Gethard Show. The reproductions of the George Washington Bridge and Brooklyn Bridge were unveiled Tuesday afternoon during a live stream.

Club. Sadly enough, not all of David Letterman's set was salvaged, as members of the crew were seen tearing apart the set and throwing the pieces in the dumpster outside of the Ed Sullivan Theater.

We assumed it would be one of his old Upright Citizens Brigade friends, like Zach Woods or Bobby Moynihan, whom he spent years performing with, but instead he went with New Girl's Jake Johnson, a comedian and actor who had a pretty terrible experience at the theatre. So, earlier this month, the two met at Soho's Toad Hall and had a long, honest conversation about failing and succeeding at Ucb, career frustrations, the desire to go underground, the differences between David Letterman and
