Wednesday on Utah TV: Dave Letterman is among those honored at the Kennedy Center

Musician Buddy Guy, actor Dustin Hoffman, ballerina Natalia Makarova and rock band Led Zeppelin are honored at The 35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors (8 p.m., CBS/Ch. 2) -- but the one I really want to see in this situation is "Late Show" host David Letterman.

He generally hates this kind of thing. He tends to avoid showing up for most of the awards ceremonies at which he's honored.
