What’s more criminal? Throwing out David Letterman’s Late Show set, or dumpster-diving for it?

Some fans of David Letterman certainly were caught off guard Thursday when they saw construction crews ripping out the seats and the set from inside the Ed Sullivan Theatre and tossing it into dumpsters. Why wouldn’t they sell the pieces at auction, as Stephen Colbert had with his Comedy Central studio when his show ended? Another fan gamely went to eBay this week with three large backdrop pieces he’d scored when the CBS Late Show had parted with its original 1993 set.

It’s not exactly movie magic, but it’ll be funny. “We thought it was funny that in the original we played a bunch of thirty year olds playing teenagers. Now we’re in our forties and our characters are even younger,” said Michael Showalter, who co-created Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp with David Wain. Wain directed the eight-episode series for Netflix — coming July 31 — and taking place two months before the final day of camp, depicted in the 2001 film. The cast also...
