    I remember first seeing David Letterman as a daytime talk host on a morning show called, appropiately enough, The David Letterman Show, back in 1980. (I was sick one week from jr high, but once I found the show, I tuned each day whenever could). The show actually won two daytime Emmys, but was cancelled due to low ratings. But Dave was hilarious. He would call up people at random from a telephone book and chat with them in his typical Dave fashion and humor. He even introduced his famous “Stupid Pet Tricks” on that show.

    No doubt, that morning show propelled him into Late Night sometime later.
