Late Show Highlights

Last week Letterman celebrated a huge milestone, and I reviewed two Late Shows in honor of it. You’d think it would make sense for me to review a different late-night show today. But, how can I not watch last night’s episode when there were so many great guests lined up? Answer: I can’t, so here were my favorite monologue jokes from last night’s Late Show with David Letterman:

The thing that’s really great about the Super Bowl is they say it’s an indicator of the Academy Awards. Did you know that? Yes, many times the team that wins the Super Bowl goes on to win an Academy Award.

How about Tom Brady? He really took it hard. He was inconsolable. He could barely touch his Bundchen.

Happy birthday Zsa Zsa Gabor. Ninety-five years old. I thought she did a great job at the Super Bowl halftime.

The desk segment was Biff Henderson at the Super Bowl. Here are the highlights:


The Top Ten was cut from the show due to lack of time, but CBS was nice enough to post it online. And I’m nice enough to borrow it and re-post it here:

Top Ten Things Overheard In The New England Patriots Locker Room After The Super Bowl

10.”Did we win?”
9.”What matters most is we had fun”
8.”We should have Tebowed”
7.”When’s game two?”
6.”President Bush is on the phone”
5.”We still get paid, right?”
4.”On the bright side, we still get to shower together”
3.”Why is Bill Belichick naked?”
2.”Who cares that we lost — I’m married to a supermodel” (Tom Brady only)
1.”Well, at least we don’t have to go on Letterman”

Eli Manning was the first couch guest. He is the quarterback for the NY Giants and Super Bowl XLVI MVP. The interview was pretty good. It was truly great that Eli could be there less than a day after winning the Super Bowl. Letterman was like a kid at Christmas. He just loved the fact that Eli was there and what he represented. It was fun to watch. Here’s the interview:



Sarah Michelle Gellar was the second couch guest. She stars on the show Ringer. The interview was fine. Sarah was upbeat, pleasant and fun. Is it worth watching the interview? Nah.

Die Antwoord was the musical guest. It was freaky, but they wouldn’t want it any other way:


Letterman nails it after the performance is over with, “There’s your halftime show.”

Very good show. I give it:
