Coasting to the exit

Ace doesn't shed too many tears for the final show by David Letterman.
Now I don't want to say that Letterman was never funny. He was -- at least I thought so. He was hugely funny.
But the thing is, all this media praise being directed at Letterman...? All the bits people are talking about -- the Top Ten, Stupid Human Tricks, Throwing Objects Off a Five Story Building, the Velcro Suit, the monstrously funny bits with Chris Elliot --
All of these were from the show's first five or six years of existence.
He's been coasting on his past glories ever since.
