I think the guests that stick out with me from this video, are Paris Hilton. Because she’s only famous, because who her father is and a few failed so-called realty TV shows she’s been on and of course one of perhaps thousands of so-called celebrities that have done time in jail. And if you noticed Dave Letterman, there was nothing else he wanted to talk about with Paris. Why, because she’s not well-known for really anything positive and for any substance. She’s known as a heiress who probably lives off her trust fund from her father and has someone invest and manage that money for her.

The Joaquin Phoenix, is another standout. Joaquin, later apologized to Letterman for his appearance on that show. Hopefully he apologized for not bothering to shave, or getting a haircut, chewing the gum, the sunglasses, perhaps not bathing before coming on. Dave, was expecting to see Joaquin Phoenix and instead what they got was Jim Morrison’s twin brother from 1970. Some zen new aged hipster, who didn’t seem to have a care in the world, or know anything about anything that was going on in his life. Not the way you want to appear on national TV on The Late Show with David Letterman.

Heidi Klum, well because she’s Heidi Klum. Arguably one of the five best looking women to ever come from Germany, or be of ethnic-German descent. I like Steffi Graf and Catherine Bach, but that’s me. That whole setup looked planned to me and Heidi with the sense of humor that she has, probably planned the whole deal herself with Dave and Marty Short, being more than willing helpers with the so-called Heidi wardrobe malfunction. I believe that show was from 2007, just three years after the so-called Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction at that Super Bowl.

Post-Johnny Carson, Dave Letterman to me is the best late night talk show host. And I think I like him the most because of damn straight candor. If he doesn’t have much respect for his guests, or his guests aren’t giving him much to work with and perhaps are acting like they want to be somewhere else, as you saw with Paris Hilton, who perhaps was late for her appointment with her dealer, or Joaquin, who looked like he just woke up from a ten-year coma, which would explain the shades and thick beard, Dave will let you know about it. Without actually telling you how he’s feeling.

Thank God for Norm MacDonald otherwise this interview would’ve been about Chairman of The Board. That so far I’ve been a hundred-percent successful in not seeing. I guess they could’ve talked about Melrose Place which was a great show, at least the last two seasons of it that I saw. But Courtney was on the show to talk about Chairman of The Bored, I mean Chairman of The Board. I mean who would want to be Chairman of The Bored. You would constantly be chairing over people having trouble staying awake at your bored meetings, I mean board meetings. But that was why Norm was there so they wouldn’t have to spend 5-10 minutes talking about the movie and having to listen to people snoring in the audience. Which would’ve been distracting for the audience. And losing people to more interesting things like PBS fundraising drives. And high school plays on public access TV.

When I think of the ABC action show The Fall Guy, an action comedy really from the early and mid 1980’s, I think of a very entertaining show with an excellent cast especially Lee Majors leading the way. Who was a great action comedic actor similar to Burt Reynolds or Clint Eastwood and also a very funny man not only on the Fall Guy. But since he was somebody who could kick ass as well as make you laugh on the same show. The Fall Guy had a great 4×4 Chevy pickup truck with a very powerful engine and the ability to jump like a sports car.

It was set in Los Angeles with Lee Majors playing a full-time stunt man who would moonlight as a bounty hunter when his job as a stunt man was slow to make extra money. And the two roles I thought went very well together because he could combine the roles very well. The show also had a gorgeous very sexy adorable blonde who played a stunt women/bounty hunter. Heather Thomas who always looked sexy and wore skin-tight denim jeans on that show most of the time probably as often as Raechel Ray. Not with the type of body as Rachael Ray, but still looking very sexy.

The Fall Guy was probably the first of several action/comedies slash dramas in the 1980s later to be followed by Matt Houston, The A-Team, Dukes of Hazard was still around at this point. Magnum PI, Knight Rider shows that had very versatile actors and actress’s with producers, directors and writers that wanted to show their cast’s full abilities as actors. Charlie’s Angels would be another one and following it in this period myself it was a time when network TV was actually worth watching and not loaded with cookie-cutter sitcoms or so-called reality TV.
