So Dave beat Jay in the 18-34 demo fair and square. Looks like "Conan" ended up taking a bigger bite from Jay's "Tonight Show" demo numbers than Dave's (or maybe "Nightline" had a strong week because of news... who the hell knows!) but maybe it all comes down to Letterman having better/more interesting guests this particular week than Leno's.

OK, bump the Letterman thread for this question:

Monday 11/7/2011 show -- what the hell was going on with Kris Kristofferson and Joan Baez? Am I just that far out of the whole music scene or was that the most messed up duet in history with Me and Bobby McGee.

It was like both were singing their own versions solo, sometimes in different keys, they took turns not singing at all, and when they were sort of singing simulataneously it wasn't even close to synched and then both eventually forgot the lyrics. Lalalalalalalal .. Bobby McGee.

I've seen really bad live performances, but that may have been one of the worst in history -- would I pay to see them perform together after that?

The reviewer was very complimentary of both (especially Baez) on the solo part of the concerts -- apparently they each do about an hour alone and then 2-3 duets at the end.
He stated that Bobby McGee was a bit iffy, but apparently their duet of The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down was very impressive. Maybe it's just a hard song to synch up with their individual styles.

TV Notes
Deal Would Lead Letterman to a Late-Night Milestone
By Bill Carter, The New York Times' 'Media Decoder' Blog - Jan. 12, 2012

PASADENA, Calif. – It appears increasingly likely that David Letterman will extend his contract, pushing him past the 30-year run of his idol, Johnny Carson.

According to executives who have been involved in discussions with Mr. Letterman’s production company, Worldwide Pants, a deal to remain on the air until 2014 is imminent. The executives said that CBS had authorized the company to make new agreements with the key members of Mr. Letterman’s staff, his producers and writers.

“That means a final deal with Dave is very close,” said one of the executives involved in the negotiations, who asked not to be identified because the deal is not yet ready to be announced.

What remains unsettled, according to several executives, is the future of the host of CBS show that follows Mr. Letterman, Craig Ferguson. There remains a possibility that he will choose not to continue, the executive involved in the negotiations said.

For many months, people close to Mr. Letterman said he had decided not to retire this year, as had been rumored when he agreed to his last two-year extension in 2010. Instead, Mr. Letterman has given indications for months that he was leaning toward staying on the job, hosting the show called “Late Show With David Letterman.”

Mr. Letterman joined CBS in 1993, after an 11-year career in late-night at NBC. Next year, will be his 20th year at CBS. If he works until the end of the extended deal he will have been on the air for 32 years in late night, two more than Mr. Carson’s record run at NBC’s “Tonight” show.

Leslie Moonves, the CBS chairman, said he would not comment on the status of the late-night talks. One senior CBS executive said only that the network expected a satisfactory conclusion to the late-night situation.

Mr. Letterman’s current deal expires in August, though it contains a window for him to exit in May. (May is the end of the standard television season and more logical exit point than August; Mr. Carson left in May 1992, after 30 years.)

The issue surrounding Mr. Ferguson is whether he will come to terms to continue in the 12:35 a.m. time slot. CBS is expected to seek to keep him, and he does have a clause in his contract that would guarantee him the 11:35 show if Mr. Letterman chose to step down.

But Mr. Ferguson has never taken the position that he must inherit the earlier time period by a certain time, an issue that has clouded previous late-night transitions at NBC.

Instead, the issue of whether Mr. Ferguson will stay at CBS or seek a new direction in his career is expected to come down to whether CBS improves his salary, and perhaps improves the production budget for his “Late Late Show.”

CBS ANNOUNCES NEW CONTRACT EXTENSIONS WITH LATE NIGHT STARS DAVID LETTERMAN AND CRAIG FERGUSON THROUGH 2014

CBS has reached agreements with David Letterman and Craig Ferguson for contract extensions to host their respective late night franchises - LATE SHOW and THE LATE LATE SHOW - through 2014, it was announced today by Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. Both series are produced by Worldwide Pants, Inc.

During the course of this agreement, Letterman, who premiered in late night in 1982, would become the longest-running late night talk show host in television history, surpassing the current record of 30 years by Johnny Carson.

As part of this new deal, THE LATE LATE SHOW will move to a larger stage at CBS Television City in Los Angeles, and CBS will co-produce the series with Worldwide Pants, Inc.

David Letterman is a late night legend with an iconic show and Craig Ferguson continues to evolve the genre in exciting and innovative ways, said Nina Tassler, President, CBS Entertainment. These new agreements deliver ongoing high-quality entertainment for our audience and continued strength and stability for CBS in late night.

David Letterman has been credited with redefining The Talk-show genre when Late Night with David Letterman premiered Feb. 1, 1982. The groundbreaking show earned a Peabody Award, five Emmy Awards and 35 Emmy nominations during its 11½ years on the air. Since its debut on CBS on Aug. 30, 1993, the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN has been honored with nine Emmy Awards, including six for Outstanding Variety, Music or Comedy Program, and a staggering 70 Emmy nominations.

Since its debut in 2005, THE LATE LATE SHOW with CRAIG FERGUSON has won critical acclaim for its unpredictable style and its host's versatility and charm. The Scottish-born actor, writer, director and producer has brought a unique approach to late night television, earning the show a Peabody Award in 2009 and its host an Emmy Award nomination in 2006. The program's signatures include an extended, unscripted monologue and guest interviews noted for their free-wheeling nature.

The LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN is broadcast weeknights (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Barbara Gaines, Matt Roberts, Jude Brennan, Maria Pope, Eric Stangel, Justin Stangel and Rob Burnett are the executive producers.

Explosive potential tonight with Olbermann. He is going to throw his former employers under the bus and then back over them.

DAVID LETTERMAN TO HOST HIS FINAL “Late Show” BROADCAST
WEDNESDAY, MAY 20, 2015 ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK


David Letterman will host his final broadcast of the Late Show on Wednesday, May 20, 2015 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network, it was announced today by CBS and Worldwide Pants Incorporated, Letterman’s production company.

“David Letterman has given to all of us a remarkable legacy of achievement and creative brilliance that will never be forgotten,” said Leslie Moonves, President and CEO of the CBS Corporation. “It’s going to be tough to say goodbye, but I know we will all cherish the shows leading up to Dave’s final broadcast in May.”

The longest-tenured late night talk show host at more than 32 years, Letterman, who has hosted CBS’s Late Show for 22 years, announced his retirement on the April 3 broadcast. Since its CBS premiere on August 30, 1993, Letterman’s Late Show has won nine Emmy Awards and a staggering 73 Emmy nominations. Letterman debuted on the late night scene Feb. 1, 1982 with the premiere of his groundbreaking “Late Night with David Letterman,” which ran for 11 ½ years and was honored with five Emmy Awards. As of May 20, 2015, Letterman will have hosted 6,028 total episodes of both “Late Night” and the LATE SHOW.

Widely credited with redefining the talk show genre, Letterman is one of the most influential, acclaimed and honored personalities in television history. In December 2012, Letterman was an honoree at the prestigious “35th Annual Kennedy Center Honors,” which recognizes recipients for their lifetime contributions to American culture through the performing arts in dance, music, theater, opera, motion pictures and television. In 1992, he received the prestigious George Foster Peabody Award for taking “one of TV’s most conventional and least inventive forms – the talk show – and infusing it with freshness and imagination.” In March 2011, Letterman was awarded the prestigious Johnny Carson Award for Comedic Excellence at Comedy Central’s first annual “The Comedy Awards.” Letterman has also won two American Comedy Awards as Funniest Male Performer in a Television Series, and in 2012, he received the Career Achievement Award from the Television Critics Association.

This week.

Kinda crazy, this show has been on the air for most of my life. I was 10 years old in 1993, when his CBS program first aired. I wasn't even born yet when David Letterman had his Late Night with David Letterman program.

Unlike NBC, David Letterman was the continuous host of the CBS Late Night genre. (I think.. I'm sort of young, don't know the history very well.)

Edit: Ken H created this thread in 2011. Am I missing something? Was this program named something else or not in HD?

LOL ... I'm pretty sure Mr. Letterman (in the NBC days) was single-handedly responsible for the failure of my original college "career" ... ok maybe Linda Ellerbee (sic?) and the CBS "Nightwatch" crew played a part too. ... Ok, maybe it was the day-drinking and ... Oops, there I go oversharing again. (30)

Dave's earned a rest. He has been one of the best and I've watched them all. My late night viewing goes back to last year of Steve Allen and the beginning of Jack Paar.

With Dave's final few weeks just left, what guests would you guys like to see? For me I want the ones that he interacts best with, whether they be big stars or not. I want to see:

Jack Hannah and the animals
The Toy Lady (dont remember her name)
Regis Philbin
Bill Murray
Brian Williams
Donald Trump
Drew Barrymore (to reprise flashing Dave)

The Toy Lady = Shannon Eis ("Cold as Ice")

I believe Howard Stern has already been announced -- he would be my number one choice. Those two together never disappoint. Everybody else on the list above are top selections as well. Probably too far-fetched, but I've love to see Leno show up, recreate the old days of "what's my beef?" Wonder how many people remember his appearances on the NBC show -- absolutely hilarious. Hardly seems like the same guy.

It's crazy to think that the end is near. I feel like I just started watching the ill-fated "morning show," though now that was 35 years ago! I saved the TV Guide ad ...

Howard is great as long as he doesnt totally take over the show like he does sometimes, but I love Howard.

I had thought of Leno too, but figured no way. But now he really could.

What is going to happen with all of Paul's wild outfits? How about they give them to homeless people, would that be a hoot to see homeless people all over Manhattan dressed in those outfits!!!

The idea of Leno appearing now doesn't seem as far-fetched:

I think that would be a pretty cool way to wrap things up.

No one. I was a long time fan. Over the years he checked out and most of the time doesn't even know who he is interviewing... nor does he care. His attitude used to carry the show but now it's unwatchable (for me).

I hope Don Rickles can make it one more time. Bob Newhart, too. I'm hoping some that have just been on recently get in again, too, like Bruce Willis. Seinfeld has to come back again I'd think.

I hope CBS have somthing better planned than just a 90-minute clip show. A lot of which Letterman is already showing on his show. A wasted opportunity if that is all the celebrating they are planning.

A history of the show with personal retrospectives from guests, writers, comedians and producers would be much more interesting.

Shhh...recording it tonight no spoilers! I gotta wonder just how cooperative Dave is for any kind of tribute...

I'm just realizing how much a part of my routine he is. I've been saving the last few weeks of episodes so I can go through withdrawal easier....

Humm ... probably too soon for that. Wait a while and then let Ken Burns (Jr) do his thing. (46)

I watched Letterman regularly in the late 80's and early 90's and have fond memories of it. Haven't really watched since and didn't realize he was doing similar clip segments on his show as the special but from watching only the first 10 minutes of the special, great nostalgia value, trip down memory lane!

Can't wait to watch the rest.
