  • My first review for this program.

    Having been bored with Conan O'Brien and The Tonight Show having the same thing night after night I decided to finally tune into TV's #1 late night laffer Late Show with David Letterman. While the monologue did have a few funny lines, I rediscovered why I disliked Letterman for all these years; he is a huge mark for himself. You can just tell that he thinks all his "subtle" jabs at Sarah Palin are ingenius and that his "controversial" comments are cutting edge, when they are not. The Top 10 list was mildly clever, but I've seen clips of better ones.

    Anna Wintour is someone I hadn't heard of so this was mostly filler to me.

    Mark Teixeira came off as a likable guy during his brief interview, even though it is impossible for me to like somebody on the New York Yankees as I am a Red Sox fan.

    The final verdict? I'll probably keep watching this week over Conan. Until he changes things up, he's gonna keep losing.moreless
