 Dear Dave Letterman... - DBSForums Discussion Forums
IMHO, Dave's show suffered in the move to CBS, but not significantly, only in the scope of being massaged by CBS and being put in a venue that is too large (440 seats vs. 199 at NBC), which throws the audience timing off.
Dave is still the same Dave he always was, but its harder to be funny in the new venue, plus the fresh and irreverent schtick he invented can no longer (22 years later) apply here...Jon Stewart and The Daily Show currently own that crown hands down.
Dave was also better when Paul had a 4-piece combo instead of a 7 piece horn-driven band, which changes the tone of things completely (again, thank the suits at CBS).

 Dave Letterman:
'Why,' you ask?
Dave is supposed to be – and usually is – funny.
Of course, since it was Dave's audience, disposed to agree with whatever he says and also reacting to the angry way Dave asked, it applauded wildly.
But host Dave's mistreatment of guest Bill still provokes me, especially in view of his audience's warmth to Dave's echoing question "Why are we in Iraq anyway?" It's become an acceptable social choice by now to forget the answer to that question.
