David Letterman

If you were watching David Letterman’s show on September 18, 1985, back when it was still on NBC and called Late Night with David Letterman, you saw a bit of TV history being made.
On that night, Letterman introduced his first “Top Ten” list. And, it all started almost 30 years ago, with the very first Letterman Top Ten List, the “Top Ten Things That Almost Rhyme With Peas.”
Here they are, in descending order:

10. Heats
9. Rice
8. Moss
7. Ties
6. Needs
5. Lens
4. Ice
3. Nurse
2. Leaks

And, the number one word that almost rhymes with peas is (drumroll):

1) Meats!

The most recent episode of Jerry Seinfeld’s comedy web series Comedians In Cars Getting Coffee guest stars David Letterman.

“Speaking of dumb guys…always a segway.”

Fun fact: Jerry, like I would imagine all comedians do, remember the exact date they first appeared on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

From CBC:

David Letterman is really into drums. There’s a thing he sometimes does after a band plays on his show: he walks up to the drummer, compliments them on their drums and asks if they’re rentals. The CBC noticed it happening often enough that they combed YouTube for a few dozen instances and created this supercut of Letterman talking to drummers.
