Late night fight

Stupid human tricks: As the game of late-night talk show musical chairs continues with Stephen Colbert taking over for David Letterman in 2015, one TV writer is looking at how late night TV has changed since Letterman debuted his CBS show in 1993.

We’ll add one more:

Then: Letterman amused America by throwing TVs and other stuff off the top of a building.

Now: America amused itself by throwing Jay Leno off TV.

Back for another bite: The makers of “Sharknado,” a TV movie in which a hurricane drops man-eating sharks on the streets of Los Angeles, will be followed by a sequel this July on the Syfy channel. This time New York is under siege in the unambiguously titled “Sharknado 2: The Second One.” Cameos are planned by Al Roker, Matt Lauer, Perez Hilton, Andy Dick, Kelly Osbourne and other B-listers.

Here’s how to tell if you need a new agent: You didn’t make the cut for “Dancing with the Stars,” and your only line in “Sharknado 2” is “Ay-eeeee!” as you’re eaten whole by a great white.

I’ll have mine neat: The American Bar Association says about 57 percent of 2013’s law school graduates have found full-time work that required them to pass the bar exam.

The other 43 percent found work that required them to pass a bartender’s exam.
