Late Night Wars: Letterman Explains It All

David Letterman has shared his opinions on the grand mess that is also known as NBC. He’s probably the only person who can save us all from the Late Night Wars.

Of course, Conan O’Brien’s official statement on the matter is more to the point:

“For 60 years the Tonight Show has aired immediately following the late local news,” O’Brien said in a statement. “I sincerely believe that delaying the Tonight Show into the next day to accommodate another comedy program will seriously damage what I consider to be the greatest franchise in the history of broadcasting. The Tonight Show at 12:05 simply isn’t the Tonight Show. Also, if I accept this move I will be knocking the Late Night show, which I inherited from David Letterman and passed on to Jimmy Fallon, out of its long-held time slot. That would hurt the other NBC franchise that I love, and it would be unfair to Jimmy.”

I don’t know what’s going to happen to NBC’s Late Night line-up but it sure has been interesting to watch unfold.

Katherine Heigl: A Cautionary Tale

Katherine Heigl is busy promoting The Ugly Truth, which is already being deemed as one pretty bad romantic comedy. She appeared on The Late Show earlier in the week and discussed this movie as well as Grey’s Anatomy and her Mexican dog.

What an irritating interview.

I’m so sorry Katherine Heigl that you have to lay in a pretend coma for 17 hours a day. Imagine how rough it would be if you weren’t working at all? By the way, if she keeps up her diva antics, she probably won’t be working on Grey’s much longer.

I’m not the only person who is over Heigl and her seemingly bad attitude. This article in Newsweek, called Why is Katherine Heigl So Annoying?, tries to determine why the television star’s star has dimmed so quickly.

David Letterman Pays Tribute To Paul Newman

The thing for me as I spent more time with him… yeah he’s a great actor and yes he can drive race cars really really fast, but if you kind of watched what he was doing, you realized here is a guy who knew how to live his life because he took care of other people. – David Letterman on Paul Newman

David Letterman remembered Paul Newman on The Late Show. Watch the video below.

And here is a video of Newman appearing on The Late Show in 1993. It’s not the best quality video but it is still worth watching.

And one more.

David Letterman always seems to get it right when it counts.

“You Kissed Ghandi”: Mary Kate Olsen On Letterman

The Olsen twins have a special place in my life since I basically grew up with Michelle Tanner, the short-lived sitcom Two of a Kind, and their endless supply made for television movies.

Sure their antics are little questionable but after seeing Mary Kate Olsen on Weeds, I’ve gained a new sense of appreciation for the Olsen twins.

Anyways, I love, love, love this following interview with Mary Kate Olsen. Olsen appeared on Letterman last night to promote her upcoming film, The Wackness. Somehow my favorite topic in the entire world, young Hollywood and The Hills came up.

But how will Speidi react?
