Excited for Stephen Colbert, although it looks weird for David Letterman not to be there anymore. Used to work across the street -- we all ate at Hello Deli every afternoon -- and could never imagine Dave ever going away. Now with him, Jon Stewart, Chelsea Handler and "The Colbert Report" all off the air, my DVR is feeling awfully lonely at night.
Heartening to think that sometimes awful people really do change. My friend Matthew sends this report from the Viper Room:
It's been over 30 years since Sebastian Bach infamously wore the "AIDS kills fags dead" T-shirt and wrote lines like "her friend is doing time for kicking ass on a queer" ... and if we need any more proof than a stint on "Gilmore Girls" or a Broadway run that Sebastian Bach of Skid Row is a new man, last night he joined his pals from the all-gay AC/DC tribute band GayC/DC onstage for a rousing rendition of "TNT"!
