1 And to think, at one time, I thought Leno was funnier and more clever than he! Egads! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on August 1, 2009, 3:52 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 A send-up of talk show audiences, rather than the shows themselves. Letterman's idea was that they would laugh at anything as long as it was on TV: bowling balls smashing TV sets, rolled-up paper balls thrown toward a trash can across the room, stupid pet tricks, Paul Schaffer's grotesque caricature of a band leader, etc. You could get as much bang for the buck giving them a canned ham as dinner at a Manhattan restaurant. Worked for a while but ratings slipped as audiences began to catch on to their own nihilistic humiliation. And Leno stole some of the show's better elements, like going out on the street. -- Submitted By: (JohnWest) on July 31, 2009, 7:01 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Hearing the these things about Letterman now, I'm glad I haven't watched his show for the last 15 years. And there was a time when it really was "must see TV". -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on July 15, 2009, 4:45 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Yeah, in recent years he's become a shill for the Democrats, but his recent series of apologies to the idiot Sarah Palin proved he does indeed have no more balls. But, I think his Oscars hosting episode signalled the beginning of the end. ("Uma, Oprah"). I miss "The Guy Under The Stairs," "Larry 'Bud' Melman" and "Stupid Pet Tricks." -- Submitted By: (GregEichelberger) on July 15, 2009, 12:58 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Dave was hip, edgy and had BALLS when he was on NBC; he squared off against the corporate execs and never backed down, particularly after they cheated him out of his "Tonight Show" deal and threw in that lame-ass Leno. Once Dave got to CBS, however, he lost his edge and instantly became a total schmuck. -- Submitted By: (SarahGoodwich) on June 12, 2009, 12:20 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I followed Dave from his old days at NBC and I continued to follow him to CBS. I liked the fact that he was a bit more hip and quirkier than the Tonight Show. I never minded him making fun of Reagan or George H.W. Bush or Clinton. He was always funny in a respectable way. Dave crossed the line with George W. Bush, especially in his 2nd term. Like I said, I don't mind him making fun of someone I happen to support and voted for, as long as he does it in a lighthearted and respectable way. With George W. Bush his attacks became more vicious and tasteless. I just can't watch his show anymore. He's gone from being a well respected talk show host to just another New York liberal elitist. -- Submitted By: (JoeBagODonuts) on June 10, 2009, 9:01 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 David Letterman is funny. However, the thing that keeps me from watching it much is Paul Schaeffer (sp?). He has no talent. All he does is agree with everything that Dave says. I wish I could make millions to just agree with someone constantly. -- Submitted By: (MCS) on June 1, 2009, 11:02 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Letterman is my favorite late-night talk show host! Never jumped! -- Submitted By: (SVN) on April 18, 2009, 9:13 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
