The Final Installment Of The Classic Late Night Wars? David Letterman Goes Out A BIG Winner!
David Letterman‘s final show on Wednesday night brought in his biggest ratings since 1994!
That’s a major coup in the late night wars for CBS as they said goodbye to the funny man’s 33-year late night career.
In fact, the Late Show with David Letterman registered a 4.1 rating in the coveted age 25-54 demographic, and in the 18-49 demographic Letterman logged a 3.1 rating.
What’s all that mean? Really simply put: those ratings are his best single night performance since Oprah joined him on stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater on December 1, 2005.
