Well, I just googled him and I have to admit that he's not funny, not entertaining, not handsome, not clever. In fact , a complete and utter twat. Perfect for American TV, sure, but not even CLOSE to being in my league.

Used to be watchable with the occasional late night innovation, the past 10 years have been mostly stagnant stale and stupid - the 3 S's of excellent US broadcast TV.

I still find Letterman enjoyable. Especially since the alternative, if I were in the States, is Jay Leno. Who wants to watch his lame 15 minute monologues? I've had the pleasure of attending a Letterman taping earlier this year. Was quite fun indeed.

I like Dave. I haven't seen his show in years except for the odd clips on the Internet.

I think most cable TV stations should have it. It's not like those US shows are not available.
It's such a pleasure living in a world where everyone is in such a hurry to be outraged over someone else’s trivial comments
