David Letterman Asks Brian Williams to Stop Doing Jay Leno's and Jon Stewart's Shows (VIDEO)

by Jason Hughes, posted Mar 1st 2011 1:59AM
Brian Williams, 'Late Show with David Letterman'According to David Letterman, he was personally picked by the retiring Tom Brokaw to look after Brokaw's successor in the anchor chair at 'NBC Nightly News.' Letterman told Brian Williams about the conversation he had with Brokaw on 'Late Show' (Weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

"Dave, do me a favor," Brokaw said to him. "Look after Brian."

"In the meantime I see you showing up on the g******** Leno show," Letterman said. "I've seen it! Last week? Funny boy Jon Stewart!"

Williams tried to defend himself by reminding Letterman that 'The Tonight Show' is on NBC, where he works, but that only poured salt in a very old wound.

"Go ahead, stab me!" Letterman shouted, opening his jacket. "Come on, right in the heart!"

"I am begging you," Letterman pleaded with Williams, "Stop doing those shows!"

I suppose Letterman thinks he's being funny, but Jon Stewart has more humor in his little finger than Letterman's been able to muster in his entire career.

Letterman has a huge ego and can not get over not getting the Tonight Show.

whatever!!!!!

If we all ignored these self righteous people, they might go away. 2 miliion for a few hours of work each episode makes them so ungrateful, and you all support it.

The only show biz personality more vacuous and self serving than Letterman is Charlie Sheen!

Letterman is such a jerk! Have you noticed how his guests have to sit in a chair lower than his so he an be "above them" and look down on them? That says a lot about the kind of a peson he is.
