You left out when Letterman had to apologize to Sarah Palin in 2009 for suggesting her daughter Bristol was “knocked up” by New York Yankees player Alex Rodriguez (of which Sarah falsely claimed he was referring to Willow).

Oh yeah, clueless Dave gave a heartfelt speech for that thug and political criminal, Giuliani, who knows a lot more about 9/11 than most of us will ever know, and who also had a major hand in banishing the evidence of the crime.

Giuliani was a terrible Mayor before 9/11, during 9/11, & after 9/11, but America needed him to be a great Mayor and he was on TV a lot so... presto change-o, he's a great Mayor. We all bought into it, that's how bad it was in NYC at the time.

Arrh, didn't notice it was a watchmojo-video, with this annoying, nerve-nagging speaker who just won't hold her piece and talk right into the interesting parts. Don't care if you have 18 mio clickbait-harvested subscribers, your productions are total crap and you would have more subscribers if you just used screen text to add background info.

he called my house once back in 1995 but my Mom thought that it was Jay Leno.. The backstory is that I sent him a postcard about how I wanted to ask his intern out. I outlined our date and said that he could chaporone it. My plan was to cover ourselves in that glow-in-the-dark paint and then roll up and down the street in front of his studio while he filmed it with black lights. But when the show called me a couple of months later, I was hitchhiking across the country and didn't get the message until I got home.. they didn't leave a number :(

I wish the list stuck to comedic/zany interviews. 1) Crispin Glover's return visit was a hoot... 2) Jennifer Tilly appeared to be on speed, rattling on, not letting him complete a sentence. She got ultra crazy when Dave slipped up and referred to her as Meg (her sister). At one point Dave admitted that she was beginning to scare him. 3) Letterman's time with Michael Keaton was a riot. Dave asked him how it was to work with Dana Delaney on Batman Returns (she wasn't in it). A recording of Bud Melman constantly asked "Is Batman here yet? I must speak to Batman!" from inside a drawer in Dave's desk. Keaton poured his beverage into the desk... 4) During Cher's 1st visit she told him that she waited years before coming on the show because she thought he was an @ssh0le... I taped maybe a couple hundred episodes in the 80's & 90's.

Please stop narrating please stop talking please stop interrupting the video just let us watch it I believe the title is all the description that we need we do not need you to hold our hand through the entire thing. It's insulting to think that we could not figure out what it was on our own just by watching it. If you insist on interrupting with unnecessary narrative, please include that in the title so we know to avoid it. In any case thank you for your time
