    I'm wondering what did you like about the series?

    The randomness. It was much more loose and offbeat than Carson.

    Yeah very true, he was much better than Carson.  Do you feel he's lost some of that uniqueness when he moved to CBS?  For example:  He started wearing a suit instead of more causal dockers and sneakers?

    Maybe. I'd like to think that when he jumped networks, he grew up a little bit. He knew that he couldn't do the exact same show he did at NBC.

    I understand but can't agree on it being a good change.  I liked the old Dave and wouldn't mind seeing some of him back.  You know being a kid at heart is a positive thing

    My dad has old Letterman recorded on three of his VCR's, so I'd watch it from time to time. I enjoyed the old-timey Letterman a lot better than the new Letterman. Plus, the music to introduce the show was a lot better than the CBS version, too. The addition of the horns, and saxophones made it sound less like city music, and I like city music, especially with that organ.

    i only get to see this show if there's a famous actor getting interviewed, the show itself looks lame, a lot of times dave is just so not funny.

    I think he has Late Night mixed up with the Late Show, which is a common error. Just to clarify, Letterman's stint at Late Night ended in June 1993.
