ANOTHER GOODBYE TO DAVID LETTERMAN

David Letterman's final show. He said goodbye after 33-years, which includes both networks... Although for some of us, 11:30 CBS compared to 12:30 NBC was so bright and shiny. Letterman was just too visible. On the old show he sort of blended into the woodwork. And he would actually bomb. More jokes fell flat because he wasn't a polished standup, he was... different. Better than the comics who relied their humor on the quality of the joke itself. Dave's jokes in the old days filtered through an aura of him not caring either way. Skits, too. Then on CBS: suddenly he got huge laughs for every single line, and it was like... he cared. He was suddenly a really famous guy instead of a guy laughing at really famous people. But hey, it was a damn good final show tonight. And the end of an era. Two, actually. And right now, the new late-late host James Corden is doing a couple things at once: bidding farewell to Letterman and, all revved up, imitating Jimmy Fallon. But that's another story. For the Millennials to figure out.
