I've honestly never laughed once at that segment. Just another unfunny bit that Dave's going to run into the ground as he did with "Will it Float?".
So anybody have any opinions on the Weekend Late Show?
Late Show with David Letterman

I like that they've kept it too actually. They check in with whatsisname and Linda every Friday, as one would.

I FFed through all the swimsuit model stuff. I used to feel that I had to watch every minute of the show so I wouldn't miss anything, but not so much anymore. I've been watching for 30 years and have seen more than enough interviews with vapid celebrities. Viola Davis may have laughed too much but at least she was interesting.
I so love that Dave keeps harping on Mitt Romney tying his dog's crate to the top of his car. Who does that??

One of Steve O'Donnell's bits, maybe?

I think Jack Hanna has brought an armadillo on before, someone must have told him about what Dave's been saying and asked him to bring it. I wish Jack Hanna would bring his live show to Atlanta.

Dave and Jack should take their act on the road and I smiled all day at "armadillos cause leprosy".

I think the Weekend Late Show is just a funny wink at all the local, craptastic weekend "news" shows. And in the last WLS show preview, I thought it particularly funny that Linda said they'd have all the latest school closings....you know, on a weekend show.
Also, on a late show.
I'm indifferent to the bits (they certainly don't annoy me as much as, say, Mike Singletary), but at least there's a logical reason Dave can't run it into the ground by doing it every night. Remember when he'd do Fun Facts and Small Town News every. Single. SHOW?

I love the Mike Singletary bits, especially since they only seem to exist due to Singletary's uncanny resemblance to the show's receptionist. The first time they did it, I actually thought it was Singletary and was confused as to why he'd participate in such a weirdo gag. I think I might've even written about it in this thread, only to be corrected that it wasn't him.

# WLS: Linda mentioned there would be tips on how to keep squirrels out of the bird feeder. I would like to see that.

Balboa, I enjoyed the CBS Mailbag until it turned into an opportunity for Dave and Stephanie to fool around (on the air, figuratively speaking). What was that stupid bit-Mr. Carny and Vicky?
Of course, that little matter wouldn't be a problem anymore. So bring it on!
(Or maybe that was the Know Your.... bit. She was in that too.)

I've also been enjoying Dave's reaction to Rick Santorum, a mix of a comedian's glee at having such a great target and a thinking person's concern about his views ("man on dog," Rick, really??).

Thought I'd seen most of the show.

[EDIT: As long as we're talking about the band, I haven't seen Sid McGinnis or Bruce Kapler for weeks. Hope everything's OK]

While I'm at it, his real name can't possibly be Biff, can it?

And the answer to our musical question is: "Milestones" by Miles Davis
I've often wondered about the Biff walk-on music myself, and I even posed that question here before, and got no response. Another question would be....why did they choose that for Biff?
As to the choice, I'm guessin' one of two reasons. Biff's longevity being on the staff or (which I think is more likely) Shaffer asked Biff (James Jackson Henderson Jr) what he wanted for play-on music and Biff said something along the lines of "Ahhh, I don't know.. just play some Miles"

Something else to look forward to: Michelle Obama will be a guest on the March 19 show.
This will be her first visit to the show.
