Default Re: SuperBowl XLIV

I'm a little surprised that nobody commented on the 15-second promo ad for the Letterman show, with Letterman, Oprah... and Jay Leno.
I thought I was seeing things. Figured it was some technical trick. But no; there's an interesting story about how it came to be, complete with high-level negotiatinos between CBS and NBC execs, NBC sending Leno to New York, his entering the Ed Sullivan theater in disguise (a hoodie and a fake moustache), etc. Good fun!
And yes, it was Letterman's idea. Good for him for suggesting it, and good for Leno for agreeing to it.
Three thumbs up.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
