On January 4, 2015, I will be shutting down the server that hosts The TV IV website. It has been a very long time since I've been able to put any decent amount of time into the site, and ad revenue is plummeting. I think it is time to shut it down or hand it off to someone who can keep it going properly. If you are interested in taking over the site's code and data, contact administrators at --CygnusTMtalk

Late Night with David Letterman is a comedy talk show that aired on NBC in late night.

In 1992, when Johnny Carson decided to retire from comedy, David Letterman vied for the vacated hosting position for The Tonight Show (reportedly with the blessing of Carson himself) but lost out to Jay Leno. Because of this, Letterman left NBC and started Late Show with David Letterman. The Late Night brand continued with new host Conan O'Brien as Late Night with Conan O'Brien.
