Late Show with David Letterman

Darlene was fabulous, maybe even more so this year. And Paul, too. And the snow globe sax. I always like to see how that will work each year.
Naomi Watts - who cares.

I also felt Jay's story was rushed; is there usually an extra guest like Naomi Watts on the Christmas Show?

To answer your question, I know David Hyde Pierce was on one year and as I recall, that was fun interview as he delved into the absurd nature of the traditional Christmas show...last year....I tried looking for it on You Tube but to no avail..

Hope you are feeling better, stonehaven! Thanks for the link, it's great.
BTW, does anyone know where I can find video of the first show Dave did after Harry was born? I still remember him talking about Dr. Lou ordering more and more food during the labor.

I've been watching Dave since the morning show and I've always felt he was the unconventional choice, confirming my opinion of myself as being smart and on the cutting edge. The down side of that is that he hasn't gotten the mainstream recognition (ecept for all those Emmys!)or high ratings of that toady Leno, so the whole Kennedy Center Honors thing felt like an affirmation to me. Dave is a smart, funny man who has inspired many other smart, funny people.
I just remembered another great line from Tina Fey, that Dave fans secretly fantasize that Dave would like us. I'll raise my hand to that!

Or, he might hate me. I hope not. To quote Ray Romano(who normally I can't stand, but on this we agree):I love you, David Letterman.
So nice that the film tribute began with Dorothy....hope she's okay and was watching..

The Paris Hilton "jail" interview.
Paris: "But I moved on with my life so I don't want to talk about it anymore."
Dave: "See now, this is where you and I are different... Did you make any friends when you were in jail?"

I wish they'd drop some stuff off the roof again. I always enjoy watching Pat Farmer do that.
Hey, I've got an idea - let Dave go to a 4-day week all year and have one show each week be a compilation of greatest hits. We've only got a couple of years left of Late Night so it wouldn't be that many shows to compile.

And of course, his line about being 1 to nothing in the debates.
I liked that line, but loved that Michelle Obama seemed to find it really funny. Her reaction made me lol.
It was a very nice tribute to Dave and I liked seeing the pictures of him as a boy. I'm glad he looked like he was enjoying it and didn't seem too embarrassed about being praised by everyone.
Next up, the Oprah interview! I see his remarks about Jay are already getting some press. I don't think Dave saying Jay is insecure is a really biting insult, but it is being played up that way.

He was actually up for what became the Joe Rogan role. Romano's last minute firing is why there's a completely different handyman character in the pilot episode then there is for the rest of the series.
Morbs, I didn't know it was NewsRadio that Romano was talking about. I loved that show and can't imagine anyone but Dave Foley in that role (I assume that was the one he was talking about? Surely not Phil Hartman's! "Good times" is one of my long-standing recurring jokes.)

Annnnd yeah, I just keep skipping back and watching Romano zing POTUS on the 1st debate. Obama agreeing with him ("No!") is my favorite part. Also liked seeing Dave actually out with Regina. Wow!
Jim Gaffigan is my preferred Letterman pet comedian but Ray killed it. I love you too, Dave.
The Camera Three guy seemed to think Dave was the fourth member of Led Zep. He was always in the shot while they were watching the tribute performances.

Last night's show also reminded me what a great straight guy Paul is for Dave's humor. When Dave starts describing one of his elaborate fake conversations to set up a bit, Paul's encouragement makes them even funnier.

Last night's show with Kathy Griffin was awkward. Guests whom Dave doesn't like fall into two groups - some that Dave just likes to screw with (Paris Hilton, e.g.) and some he just doesn't want to bother with. I think Kathy is in the latter group. At least she knows he doesn't like her and she doesn't try to change that.
I got a totally different impression. I thought he was amused by her.
This is Kathy's 4th appearance on Letterman in the past 16 months. That's 1 visit every 4 months, including last January, when she stripped off for Dave.
