    I thought that post looked familiar.

    I posted a reply way back in 2007.

    Nothing much has changed in 5 years.

    I can tell I'm old because I remember Letterman starting at 12:30 (later 12:35). If I were really old, I'd remember him starting at 10:00...in the morning. :D

    Rather than an hour-long late news, what used to be somewhat common on ABC and CBS affiliates was late news until 11:30 (later 11:35), and then a half-hour syndicated show. When Letterman first moved to CBS, he was delayed to 12:05 in Tampa. (They weren't specifically picking on Letterman; they'd done the same with the "Crimetime After Primetime" shows, with Pat Sajak, with the "CBS Late Movie"...) It took the CBS affiliation changing to a different channel to get him on at 11:35.
