Perspective




So long Dave you were about the closest to the real deal on the right.

  1. It was past time for Dave to hang it up. He had ceased being funny a little after the Lewinsky scandal. Dave has been a complete tool of the Democrat Socialist Party Agenda since then. How do you think he avoided jail after those sexual harassment lawsuits? I wasn't because he's good looking, cause he aint.

      Um, dude, go study civil procedure. Here's a clue: CIVIL.

    4. 9:57..et. seq. David Letterman was never sued for sexual harassment. His extracurricular sexual relationships with female staffers were all consensual. There was a criminal case against one of the writers for trying to extort money out of Dave, in exchange for silence about those dalliances. Please see Black's Law Dictionary online for definitions of civil versus criminal cases.

  2. Carson was good for his times but times change, just as Leno and Letterman were good but time does march on. We see the same thing in the news, Edward R Murrow was good in his day as well as Cronkite but even recent stalwarts like Dan Rather and Tom Brokaw wouldn't fit in any more. Many of use blog readers might be the same, a round (and getting rounder) peg that won't fit anymore in a square hole.

    1. Yeah, Carson, Paar, Letterman, Cavett, Griffin, Douglas, and Leno would never fit in today's times. That is why we have the wonderful James Corden nowadays!

  3. Hey Genius at 9:57am, no one goes to jail for sexual harassment lawsuits.

  4. Agree times change, but that should not diminish the accomplishments and trailblazing that was set for the successors of the genre. Sure, the show (before this past month's farewell...where shows have been tremendous) was tired and was ready to end. Still it's nice to pause and reflect on the impact the show had, how many years we all watched and the fact that after tonight it's gone and a part of us who were fans will have something gone that was a part of our lives.

  5. The true inheritor of Carson's mantle, even if he didn't sit in Carson's chair.

    1. Didn't Carson have something to do with that?

  7. I thought he croaked 10 years ago.
    Who even knew he was still around?

  8. Yep,at least five years too late. He was hip in the 80's,still on his game in the 90's. He needed to look in the mirror and notice post 2005 he became an old farmer.

    And the thing with interns was the same old thing. Power,fame,money. Oh,do I know it....

  9. Let's at least acknowledge that Steve Allen and later Jack Paar got the ball rolling with the Tonight show. I guess you other folks don't have much of a memory, or maybe those days were past your bedtime.

    1. Yes and Steve Allen could be pretty crazy.

  10. I didn't think there'd ever be a time when I agree with Stan, but gotta give props. His words could have come out of my keyboard (key-bored?).
