Here's how David Letterman finished the very first episode of Late Night With David Letterman on February 1, 1982:
Here's the conclusion of our show, Steve Fessler, a guy from Brooklyn who for some reason remembers all the dialogues of the two-and-a-half-hour classic B film Bowery at Midnight with memory Bela Lugosi. Well, for those of you who would rather watch old movies at this time of day – I know I would – please welcome Steve Fessler.
Then Fessler came out and recited Bowery at midnight until the credits rolled. So, on Monday, November 5, 2018, Seth Meyers ended his [Closer Look] segment at Late Night With Seth Meyers :
This election has highlighted what has become of the modern GOP: a party that trades in open racism and sells culture rhetoric to its constituents while enriching itself at the expense of the taxpayer. They hope that racist scare will distract you while they rob you. And they hope you do not care if the president is a crazy maniac.
Different times! Here's Meyers, who breaks down the president's election message "All-in, White Supremacy," while criticizing his own network, NBC, for helping spread it:
Apart from the fact that television has changed dramatically in the last 36 years, Letterman has criticized his parent for their fruit basket delivery policy, not for "taking presidential money on shocking racist ads during interim leases during the last few days". Campaign Policy – It remains remarkable and commendable that Meyers takes the present moment seriously and acts accordingly. The parent company of Letterman had a guideline for the delivery of fruit basket. NBC has a "takeover of president's money for shocking racist ads during the final days of an interim campaign." (Meyers also fills in a niche that has left the Democratic Party, imagine Pelosi or Schumer saying something as direct and precise as, "They hope racist scares will distract you while they rob you.") Till and if the United States Does not Pass By The immediate existential threat posed by the open embrace of a party of lies and racial hatred, we should all have a microphone that we can get our hands on. The second second which was performed Late Night however, should commit itself to throwing bowling balls from old heights at least for a few weeks on used cars. We could all use it.
