LATE NIGHT TV STUFF


(David Letterman pictured, with Demi Moore.)

This is a big week over at the Dave Letterman show as he celebrates his 25th anniversary hosting in late night on Thursday. That's including his years slaving away unappreciated over at NBC.

Bill Murray will be on the show, too. Check out this story about it all. I'm sure there will be plenty of stories about all the wild stuff that happened on the show, too--- like the night Drew Barrymore took off her top in front of Dave, or Farrah Fawcett's seemingly stoned appearance on the show, or Howard Stern's ranting, and on and on.

Also, I found this blurb about Spike Feresten's heavily-ignored wasted effort on Saturday nights on FOX, right after MAD TV. All I will say is help this poor guy keep his gig and tune in, because they're doing a good job.

His show reminds me of the old Letterman show in the old days when he was on NBC, and that is a compliment. Feresten in fact wrote for Letterman in those old days. So the similarities are pretty pronounced. Of course, everyone makes note of the fact that nobody knows who Spike Feresten is, but people in the comedy community know who he is. People in these news organizations really should get out more often. That's it for now.
