  1. Where’s the link to have CBS stop supporting Letterman. Apparently he can’t distinguish between “funny” and “just mean”. Nothing is quite as funny as kicking somebody who is down and can’t fight back, apparently. Letterman is most of the reason I don’t watch CBS…ever.

  2. The Letterman folks spelled “whisk” wrong and wrote “wisk” on the screen!

    It’s rare to see typos on network TV shows. Not so rare here on MDN ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”smile” style=”border:0;” />

  3. Q: How do tell if Letterman or Leno have been standing behind you recently?

    A: If you were in front of Letterman there’d be a fresh “I’m a doofus” sign, taped to your back. If you were in front of Leno there’d be a fresh dagger protruding from your back.

  4. David letterman: a has been that Is and has stupid, utterly unfunny people writing embarrasing so called jokes. Please do us all a favor, retire and quickly fade away.
