In September 1991, with The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962) being pushed back from 11:30 p.m. to 11:35 p.m., Late Night began starting at 12:35 a.m., at the request of NBC affiliates who wanted more advertising time for their profitable late newscasts. See more »
While Conan does have one of the best shows on TV now, David Letterman's original Late Night talk show is what created it all. This is where such classic things like "Stupid Pet Tricks" and "The Top Ten List" were born. Dave knows what people want to laugh at, and from that show he did it all, like once leaving an audience member as host for nearly the entire show while he "looked for his fake teeth" and other great things. David Letterman's current show may get more viewers, but this one should never be forgotten.
