God bless Jerry Seinfeld for referencing The Larry Sanders Show.
Last night on The Late Show with David Letterman, after swapping places with the retiring talk show host to interview Dave as a guest, the comedian telescoped back to the 1992-98 HBO series:
“Do you remember that line that Rip Torn had, where he’s trying to convince Garry [Shandling] not to quit or something? He said, ‘You’re a talk show animal. Half-man, half-desk.’ You remember that line? My favorite line from that series.
