Neil Patrick Harris is on The Late Show tonight and David Letterman asked Doogie Howser about his memoir that is coming out next month. It was then that the How I Met Your Mother star admitted he included the CBS late night host in the book and he thinks of him as a father figure.
Sounds innocent at first, but then he goes on. Harris then reads, “Only a sexy father. So suave, so rakishly handsome. A generous kisser, a generous lover.” Then he continues on as we wish he would, “You might expect him to be more selfish in bed, but no he is very thoughtful. He’s always tending to my needs first.” Then he wrapped it by saying, “The next time I’m on the show, I’m going to find some organic way to tell him how much I appreciate that.”
I think he succeeded. Not only in telling Letterman how he feels about him, but getting us to want to read Neil Patrick Harris: Choose Your Own Autobiography.
Jack Hanna is always interesting when he is on The Late Show and boy he didn’t disappoint us yesterday. Jungle Jack asked David Letterman if he wanted to ride the camel that he brought out and the CBS late night host was excited to do it. But not as excited as Hanna who was demonstrating how to ride one without a saddle. What happens next might be illegal in some states because I don’t want to know what he was doing to that camel’s hump. What do you think he was doing?
You know it kind of reminds me of that mouse/elephant joke that was told in the movie Center Stage. Don’t know it, then click here!
Before Mark Harmon was People’s Sexiest Man Alive, he was rejected on The Dating Game. How sexy was the 20 year old in that 1972 episode?
To hear him tell David Letterman on The Late Show tonight about his experience on the game show, then click here!
Billy Eichner was on The Late Show yesterday and he did one of his challenges on David Letterman. Basically the CBS late night host had to guess if the name that Billy was reading to him was a Kentucky Derby Horse or a Celebrity’s Baby’s Name. As soon as Eichner started screaming at him, Dave started laughing the hardest I’ve seen him laugh in a long time. He truly enjoyed it, so much so that he didn’t want it to end. By the end of their chat Letterman was screaming back at him just as loud, if not louder.
I guess we know what Letterman’s next venture will be after he retires from The Late Show sometime next year. Eichner’s sidekick.
Dr Phil was on The Late Show yesterday, and David Letterman and him were talking about their ages. Then the CBS late host said that after 60 who cares, to which Dr Phil responded by saying when you get to their age it’s like “f*ck it.” The audience broke out into laughter and the daytime host thought it was for him. That is until he looked up at the monitor and saw there was a Priest sitting in the audience. At that moment, he realized his mistake and put his head down in shame.
We now know the secret on to shut up Dr Phil, get him to curse while there is a religious leader nearby.
BTW I wonder how many Hail Marys that Priest made him say and if the television doctor was like f*ck it.
Today is National Doggy Day and David Letterman celebrated it a day early on The Late Show. He had three dogs show us that they can jump further than you can by jump diving into a pool. The first pup leaped over 25′ while the other two flew over 30′ each. And I am happy if I don’t hit the side of the pool when I jump in.
Serena Wiliams was on The Late Show yesterday and David Letterman challenged her to a game of tennis. Believe it or not, the CBS late night host actually kept up with the pro. Eventually, it became too much for him, so he challenged her to break Rupert Jee’s Deli’s window via serves. Dave went first, and he was unsuccessful. Next up was the US Open title winner and at first she didn’t succeed. But that window was no match for her on the second try. Wonder how she will explain that on the court, I mean, in a court of law!
David Letterman was on vacation last week, so he was not able to pay tribute to Robin Williams until last night. The Late Show host honored his friend of 38 years with a beautiful, well executed tribute that will make you tear up. He told the story of the first time he saw the Oscar winner perform standup, and he knew that there was greatness standing in front of him. He was also afraid for his job because he was so good. The CBS host then shared the story about how Williams would get his comedy buddies, like Letterman, to be on Mork & Mindy to help out their careers. Finally, he concluded his emotional stories with a look back at the best of Robin’s fifty, yes 5-0, appearances on his shows.
I don’t care what you are doing today, but you need to take 10 minutes of your day to watch this heartfelt look back at a friendship that lasted through the decades.
Bruce Willis was on The Late Show tonight and he showed off a little invention he came up with. What is it? It is a device you put over your head, so that you can eat a corn of cob without any hands. If you want it buttered, then there is a hat for that. Sounds ideal? Just watch his demonstration to see it in action. And tell me if it is as good as Die Hard or as bad as A Good Day to Die Hard?
