CBS is out of their mind. 31.5 million for someone that is not even funny?? Why don't they let Dave and his idiotic humor go to ABC, then CBS can get Jon Stewart(who is actually funny) to be the new host of the Late Show. They get someone that's funny(unlike Letterman), and they save LOTS of $$. Seems like a smart move to me.
I love the movie "Night Shift" as well. I have met David Letterman before and he is thay shy guy you see in the movie and he really does not have this high a self esteam.
I do hope that Dave does make the move to ABC, although I would hate to see him loose the Ed Sullivan Theater. What a great place this theater is. My only gripe with the place is that there is no mention of what a great place it was and the history that took place inside. I would love the lobby to have some photos of some of the great things that happened there, but there is only one photo of the old Ed Sullivan theater and that is hanging over the door to the floor entrance to Daves studio. I have been there a lot of times over the past few years to see Dave, but everytime I go I try to imagine what it was like when the Beatles were standing there on the stage, hearing all the screaming girls.
The reason I would like to see Dave go to ABC is because hopefully they give his show the support they deserve. If you haven't noticed, Dave hardly ever gets "good" guests. While Leno has some killer guests every night of the week. It seems as though CBS does not pull any strings for Dave. I would feel that ABC would gave Dave the support so it becomes a first class show, instead of the second rate show it is now.
LOS ANGELES - Late-night television host David Letterman announced during the taping of his show on Monday that he has renewed his contract with CBS for five years rather than jump to rival network ABC.
