David Letterman demonstrated his affection for Pearl Jam when he inducted the grunge icons into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The band had been a staple on his now classic CBS Late Show since 1996.
Letterman, who called the band’s “Hail, Hail” a “big thrill” on his show in 1996, conveyed what was commonly witty, wry and an ardent speech. This is what the retired late-night host needed to say in regards to his affection for the long-running band.
David Letterman: Thank you. That’s very kind of you. I can’t even begin to tell you what an honor and a privilege it is to be out of the house. I know Neil Young was supposed to be here. People are looking at me like I had something to do with it. Why isn’t Neil Young here? The truth of it is the poor guy just can’t stay up this late. That’s what it is. Either that or he’s fallen ill. I’m not sure. Continue reading
Now David Letterman walks out on Joan Rivers…
Talk about timing, and all of it bad.. The CBS Television Network today announced that Stephen Colbert, the host, writer and executive producer of “The Colbert Report,” will succeed David Letterman as the host of THE LATE SHOW, effective when Mr. Letterman retires from the broadcast.
Letterman, the legendary, critically acclaimed host of the CBS late night series for 21 years, announced his retirement on his April 3 broadcast. Colbert’s premiere date as host of THE LATE SHOW will be announced after Mr. Lettermen determines a timetable for his final broadcasts in 2015.
Specific creative elements, as well as the producers and the location for the Colbert-hosted LATE SHOW, will be determined and announced at a later date.
Lady Gaga hungrily lapped up some of her final fleeting press time by making a surprise visit to Bill Murray via The David Letterman Show. Murray showed up on Wednesday’s Late Show With David Letterman to take a bucket list photo with host and Gaga.
The Groundhog Day actor revealed that one of the things left on his bucket list was to meet Lady Gaga.
On Wednesday night’s David Letterman show, Eva Longoria was promoting her new cookbook. She has compiled a book of family and her own recipes called Eva’s Kitchen.
She came out dressed in a blazer and tiny shorts that matched, and told Letterman that she had worn a tuxedo for him. He jested back at her, “Or part of one.” David Letterman told her she looked tremendous as his eyes bugged out a little.
Longoria was just asking for trouble wearing a low-cut, tight jacket with no shirt or bra under it. Midway through the interview, her button popped open, and she caught it in time to avoid a serious wardrobe malfunction.
As Eva buttoned herself back up, Dave joked that they would lose their liquor license. She just laughed and told him “You didn’t see anything.” So he just picked his jaw up, and continued talking about making guacamole with her.
With all the stylists that the stars have, it’s amazing someone wouldn’t have pinned her jacket together or taped it to her. It was obvious during the interview that she was uncomfortable, because she was fidgeting the whole time she was talking to Letterman.
