BTWF: David Letterman on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson
October 20th, 2022 under Better Late Than Never, David Letterman. [ Comments: none ]

Before David Letterman lost out on hosting The Tonight Show to Jay Leno, he had to make his debut on The Tonight Show starring Johnny Carson. You can tell that the 31-year-old was meant to be a star in that 1978 episode.


Kanye West dresses David Letterman up his clothes

Ever since David Letterman started hosting a nighttime talk show in 1982, he has dressed the same way. Now that his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction is in its second season, it is about time he got a new look. Kanye West is the man who is going to style him.

After seeing Letterman all Yeezyfied, I think he needs to stick with his old look. Especially since those threads with his big bushy beard makes him look like a bum. If he sat on a bench in NYC, people would give him some change because they would feel sorry for him.

Can that whole interaction with Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner and the host be any more awkward? Especially when Mrs. West asks her husband, “Are you going to let him have it?” Like they need any more money? Cheap bitch.


BTWF: Lindsay Lohan on Late Night with David Letterman

Before Lindsay Lohan was a guest on The Late Show with David Letterman, she did a Halloween bit on Late Night with David Letterman. How awwwwdorable was the 6-year-old dressed as Stuff Found on the Floor of the D-Train back in 1992?

BTW are you impressed I did not make a trash joke about her? It is so easy to do because there are many!!!


Conan responds to Letterman responding to him!
October 19th, 2017 under Conan O'Brien, David Letterman. [ Comments: none ]

Last Friday, Conan O’Brien was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and he told a long story about a how David Letterman gave him a horse as a thank you gift a few years ago. Then on Tuesday, David Letterman was on Jimmy Kimmel Live and the first Late Night host told him that he gave the horse to the second Late Night host as a gag and was expecting him to return it to sender. Something Conan did not know until that interview.

Therefore, now after 3 and a half years, he is finally returning the horse to its rightful owner. No word how much it cost to ship the gift that keeps on giving across the country, but probably almost as much as the gorgeous animal is worth. Which is sad because Letterman is taping his Netflix show in Los Angeles and Conan could have saved a pretty penny and gave Dave Dave the Horse here.

I am sure this will not be the last time we hear about Dave the Horse and I cannot wait to see it all unfold in a late night battle. This is Letterman and Conan’s second late night war, they each had one before and it was against another horse or at least Jay Leno kind of looks like one…


Letterman on Kimmel talking about Conan on Colbert
October 18th, 2017 under Conan O'Brien, David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Stephen Colbert. [ Comments: none ]

Last Friday, Conan O’Brien was on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and he told a story about how David Letterman got him a horse, yes a real horse, as a thank you gift for writing a nice letter to the semi-retired talk show host about all he did for late night television.

The story goes, when the TBS late night host heard that Letterman sent him a gift, he got overly excited. He got even more excited when he heard that the truck the present was in was too big to fit through the gates of the Warner Bros lot in Burbank. Therefore, he skipped, I am assuming, to get his gift that also skips. That is because it was a horse. What does a Harvard Man from Boston in LA via NYC know about horses? Nothing that is what.

Therefore, he found a place to take care of the unridable horse, and it was not cheap. On topic but off track, there are several equestrian centers in Burbank that are within a mile of where Conan tapes his nightly show. He could literally walk there, that is how close they are close to him. Anyways, after two years, he found a new home for Dave, so they donated Dave the Horse that was given to him by Dave the Letterman. A place so nice that is why we say that hoses go to greener pastures.

You would think that is where the story ends. It does not. David Letterman was on Jimmy Kimmel Live yesterday, since the ABC host is taping the show in Brooklyn this week, and Dave told his side of the story. Letterman likes to give gag gifts and thought he would send Conan the horse with two cowboys while O’Brien’s show was taping and the stallion would take a big dump on the stage like when Ben Stiller brought a camel onto JKL many years ago. Then after the horse took a big sh!t on Conan’s stage, the giftee would sent the gift back to the gifter. That did not happen and Letterman had to pay for the thoroughbred that was returned to sender.

What did we get out of it? Two late night talk shows telling their stories on two other late night shows that are not their own. I cannot wait for Letterman to be Conan or Conan to be on Letterman’s Netflix show, so we can get the next chapter on their story.

And how did you like that in both cases the guests, who are also late night show hosts, totally dominated their interview segments on the other person’s late night show. The men behind their desks knew that they had met people who are better at their jobs than they are.

On that note, I think that Conan should spend a block of his show telling an unscripted tale because he is a great storyteller. I could watch him talk for 4 hours every week just talking about whatever. Don’t you just love the way he tells stories?
