I still have the 2 famous episodes:

the one with Madonna where she was comparing her NBA basketball players friends with something in the studio

and

the Drew Barrymore episode where she and Letterman gets all embarrassed.

Anyone who has been following Letterman for a long time should know what I am talking about.


What's in the box? C'mon, what's in the boooox?

Yup, there was always the memorable dumb stuff lol!

David Letterman has always been the self-deprecating dumb guy but I think he was always better, intellectually, than all the other talk show hosts at going toe to toe with the best of them ... Bill Clinton, Brian Williams, Tom Brokaw ... whoever. David even used to joke that the road to the White House ran right through his studio. smile

I also really appreciated his respect for, and interviews with, war vets and race car drivers (http://rahal.com/). He also always seemed to have some of the most leading edge musical acts on his show.

So after he retires that means that Conan O'Brien will be the longest tenured late night host.

I would probably watch more Letterman if it wasn't for Paul Shaffer looking stupid and making dumb comments; I can't stand that guy

Does this mean no chance that Melmon bus lines will ever be restarted? confused

I personally believe in the tooth fairy, Santa Claus and that deficit spending is sustainable forever. We really do need more Admirals in the Navy than ships and that millions of more poor immigrants will jump start the economy.

He used to be a pleasant diversion until he started pushing his propaganda.

exactly, part of the reason I hate the show. I just don't find Letterman funny either.

smile Nixer, love it



Loved Larry "Bud" Melman, everytime he moves that microphone at the wrong time it kills me.

I have a lot of musical guests from the Letterman show on my Youtube channel

It's not unu-su-AL to like songs they sung back then...

What's funny is no one made a big deal when I announced Letterman's retirement several years ago...
