  1. If people can get a laugh before they go to bed, see a clip of a new movie to attend soon and hear something to talk about at the water cooler at work the next day, David Letterman has made life a bit better for viewers and listeners who may not click the off button before dozing off to sleep. Over 5000 nights of laughs, political punditry, entertainers & chats, thank you Dave and don’t let stalkers or black mailers keep you from love in your bed either. Peace (and change your home office from Wahoo, NE to Bucksnort, TN. We here in the South need more laughs too!

  2. I am a fan of cold cases on cbs and last night wcsc didn’t show and I would like to know if they are going to show the I missed and when?

    • COLD CASE was pre-empted by CBS because of a football overrun. We’re sure CBS will reschedule the episode, but we don’t have any information on when that will be. It’s possible that this weekend’s episode will be the one that would originally have aired this past Sunday.
