Premise

Dave's first foray into late-night TV (make that late-late-night---he followed Carson) helped redefine the genre, making it edgier and hipper. Letterman also honed some trademark segments (including his Top 10 lists and `Stupid Pet Tricks') on this show (called `Late Night'), and when he moved to CBS in 1993 he also took his `Late Night' bandleader, Paul Shaffer, with him.
