    I never get used to reports like these:
    'Late Show' posts poor ratings

    Last week tied lowest-ever among 18-49 demo

    NEW YORK -- CBS' "The Late Show With David Letterman" tied its lowest-ever adults 18-49 rating last week.

    "Late Show" averaged a 0.9 rating in adults 18-49, Nielsen Media Research said. That is its lowest ever for an original since the program premiered in 1993, though not the lowest for the show: It has hit 0.9 several times, most recently in late December when it was in reruns because of the WGA strike.

    Meanwhile, "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" averaged a 1.3 rating in the demo, its biggest margin of victory against "Late Show" in four months. "Late Show" tied for second place in the demo rating with ABC's "Nightline," though "Nightline" had more viewers in the demo. Both "Tonight" and "Late Show" showed drops in viewers and the demo.

    Friday's "Nightline" wasn't included in the ratings.

    When Letterman preaches his politics he is just naturally going to lose 1/2 of his audience. It's a gamble he chose to take in order to express his passionate positions, but his bitterness is repugnant to some of us and his ratings show it. What did he expect?

    Maybe the national IQ is rising. Letterman has always been the quintessence of silliness.

    Mick Jagger is in better shape than far too many NBA players. It's up in the air whether the same can be said of Keith Richards.

      While I will add that when Jay would fill in for Johnny Carson, I liked him, but once he picked up the gig full time - I had no interest in watching him any longer.
