Top 10 Moments in the Last 10 Years
So many moments – more than 100,000 minutes, or thereabouts – on “Late Show With David Letterman” these last 10 years. How to select the most memorable?
Here’s Newsweek’s Top 10 list (in chronological order).
1. Aug. 30, 1993. The show premieres on CBS, with first guest Bill Murray spray-painting “Dave” on the host’s desk. Billy Joel also appears, and so do Tom Brokaw and Paul Newman.
2. Sept. 8, 1993. Vice President Al Gore wears goggles, smashes ashtrays. Very odd.
3. March 31, 1994. Madonna becomes “Late Show’s” most notorious guest, using expletives a half-dozen times and offering Dave her panties. (A couple of days later guest Elvis Costello gives Dave one of his socks.)
4. May 13, 1994. Johnny Carson makes his only late-show appearance after retirement (and does a Top 10 list). Music group Traffic reunites for this broadcast.
5. April 12, 1995. Dave gets unsual birthday gift from Drew Barrymore, who hops on desk, dances and flashes her breasts.
6. Oct. 28, 1996. A salute to manager Joe Torre and the Yankees after their first World Series win in 15 years.
7. June 6, 1997. Second-most notorious guest appearance, when a disoriented Farrah Fawcett chats somewhat incoherently for about 17 minutes.
8. Jan. 12, 2000. After years of Dave’s bugging her, Hillary Rodham Clinton finally gives in to his invitations and appears to talk about her decision to run for the U.S. Senate.
9. Feb. 21, 2000. Dave makes a big return, hosting perhaps his best show in 10 years, after recovering from Jan. 14 heart surgery.
10. Sept. 17, 2001. “Late Show” returns to the air for the first time after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Arguably the host’s finest moment in nearly 20 years on the air.
