Yesterday, Larry King announced that he is retiring this fall from his 25 year old show on CNN. Yes, Larry's ratings were dropping. But after twenty five years, how long is one supposed to sit on top of the world? I liked what Larry King did. I liked his TV and his radio shows. I liked his cameos in those movies of the past. Larry King, a recognizable American, Mr Normal, an icon, for those summer movie in which little was normal.
Larry King says he's stepping down, but not stepping out, that he will be sticking around for specials, -- or for when something from a fantastic summer movie really occurs, and good old Larry King can come on the screen and say something like, "America, these men from outer space, I shall interview them tonight, right here. We are going to find out what they're up to. Stay tune."
