What a caring gift. Thank you again, baby.
David Letterman has done some of the funniest off-the-wall material seen on TV. Not recently.
Since the heart attack? Since his affair? Since the birth of Harry? At some point his TV spark went away.
Don’t get me wrong. I’d see him tomorrow. I’m still a huge fan. He is not doing his best work today.
So, who? The NY Post says CBS likes Colbert.
Are they talking the character he currently plays or legit Stephen Colbert? Is either a good choice? With the real Stephen, you risk fans who might not like his actual persona as much as his alter ego and feel cheated.
I like Jon Stewart a lot. That choice would make me happy and I think he could be a force.
Stern had major public battles with Les Moonves who runs the network and its attendant empire. It got very nasty.
Does money trump personal animosity? Here? In SoCal? In show biz? Survey says, yes!
CBS needs to hit a home run. Late night is fabulously profitable in an era of pinched bottom lines. They will suffer greatly without the revenue Letterman brought.
This will be interesting to watch. Dave said his run ends in 2015.
