As Letterman Quits--A Look Back

With Leno gone, Letterman, having outlasted him, announced retirement today.  Here, from his first late night NBC show more than 30 years ago, with first guest, Bill Murray.

His first show was SO much better than this last one. Better guests (Quentin Crisp, Allan Ginsberg), better comedy routines (Chris Elliot), etc. etc.

The CBS show is nothing but PR flack. Just like Leno.

If you saw a guest list from, say, April of 1984 and compared it with this week's, it'd be real shock.
