  • Epic Late Night Host

    It seems that recent reviews are confusing David Letterman with the unfunny Jay Leno. Or, they don't seem to appreciate the great type of comedian that David Letterman is. He was pretty awesome. Most hosts wouldn't care if their show were PG that late at night, but he doesn't care that he can get away with more and still decides to use mostly clean humor a lot. His bits always work, sometimes even when they don't. He will certainly be leaving a void now that he has stopped hosting the show. It's sad that we won't be able to see him on TV anymore. But those of us who remember him will probably remember a great talk show host who knows what he's doing. I just wish that the comedians on his show were always as good as he was. But, he will be missed, that's for sure.moreless
  • Boring, Snarky, unfunny

    That's about it. Was compelled to add a review, to what end I dunno. But always found Letterman to be boring, not very entertaining, not at all funny, a parody of himself which is rarely interesting and in this case, not.... I can only think we have a very bored populace to have ever stayed with the guy. Gave 3 bars just because I can't give 1 bar, just because. Ever see him be rude to people? Often. I find him to be an absolute bore. Kind of like this review but takes one to know one aye?

    PS, watched his last show. I was not disappointed... in my initial commentary which is... unremarkable. How boring can you get? Be? Absolutely unremarkable. Which is a reflection on the American society which leans towards mediocrity. How this program maintained for as long as it did is simply that... a reflection on a public that accepts mediocrity. I personally found the so called comedian Dave Letterman and the Dave Letterman show to be stunningly boring. Always have and won't be able to say, always will.moreless
  • Been dialing it in for years

    Hard to believe this is the same guy from NBC. Totally lost his edge when he had his kid. Now spends half his time talking about child rearing. His monologue doesn't even make me smile and the segments during the monologue are embarrassingly BAD. Still the best interviewer when not talking about kids but i can zip through the show in about 10 minutes. Top 10 list, were they ever funny? I already miss Dave cause he hasn't been on the show in years. Pitymoreless
  • Take a pass on the Letterman show when visiting New York City

    They show a video before the show starts that tells you to laugh even when a joke isn't funny. They weren't funny. I think I laughed once during the whole show. Their announcer, Alan Kolter is a class act and the only really funny guy on the show. Check out his celebrity interviews on youtube. Very funny stuff. The band is great too. If you have a VIP pass hide it. The pages and security are rude and unfriendly if you have a VIP pass. Also, they will seat you in the last row. You can't see the stage from back their so you have to watch the show on the overhead TV monitors. I can do that in my living room. We made a charitable donation for tickets and got treated like dirt. The pages are a bunch of little trolls.moreless
  • Can't leave soon enough

    Letterman is irrelevant to just about every TV viewer. He has grown too old and bitter. Without George Bush to make fun of he has no real material. He's alienated older viewers with his ultra liberal and mean spirited rants and now he's lost the younger viewers due to his lack of talent and inability to compete effectively with Jimmy Fallon. I hope Fallon stays focused on great entertainment and keeps his personal political point of view out of his show. CBS has to be counting the days till Dave finally retires. If he doesn't get out soon NBC is going to have a lock on Late Night for decades and CBS won't be able to even come close.moreless
