    Re: David Letterman Retiring

    Loved Dave back in the day, but his time has come and gone, still funnier than Leno though.

    Agreed, he was the best by far in the late 90s, etc. (before Conan really took off), but it's a different game these days. He still ran circles around Leno.

    Agree. He was great in the 80's after he followed Carson. Now he is just an angry, old man, who regurgitates the same crap over and over.

    Even in the early 2000's, once in a while he had really great show, and that made it worth while to keep watching. For the last 10 years or so, he's just been a grumpy, unfunny, old man.

    Re: David Letterman Retiring

    He went political and bitter since about 2000. I used to love Dave and would not miss a show. However, I wished he would have quit 14 years ago.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    I don't think it's a huge shock or anything.

    He was really solid in the mid to late 90's and even into the early 00's IMO.

    Re: David Letterman Retiring

    Once Jimmy took over for Leno, Letterman had to see the writing on the wall. Jimmy is better than Leno and Letterman is not nearly as funny as Jimmy

    I think it's a shock that he folded to Fallon this soon. A lot of people were predicting that Letterman would become the ratings leader due to Leno fans defecting or something.

    Re: David Letterman Retiring

    I thought he retired about ten years ago. He really became very political and lost me at that time.

    Re: David Letterman Retiring

    Dave has lost a step, but for a good stretch in the 80's and into the 90's he was a comedy god. I recorded every Late Night and watched after school.His day has come and gone, but he's on the Mt Rushmore of comedy
