I wish Letterman wasn't pre-tapped, he'd say something insightful about Jackson
Edited on Sat Jun-27-09 12:01 AM by Lorax7844
both are from Indiana and I think that Letterman will be able to put the whole situation in perspective for us.

My take is that I think everyone is relieved that Michael Jackson can't possibly get any worse. For years it's like we were all watching him shrivel into an even more pathetic shell, now that he is gone it's ok to listen to the music again. It's a relief to be able to focus on the good things: the music, breaking the color/class/nationality barrier, etc.

1. I thought they pre-tapped
in the late afternoon. I missed it tonight, but watched last night, and he didn't say anything. But if they taped at 3 or 4, MJ wasn't dead yet.

2. no he usually tapes Thur and Friday on Wed.
I haven't watched it all but he seems like this was taped earlier in the week. No way he wouldn't mention it, if it were tapped today.

3. About 6 O'clock. Two shows are taped on Thursdays starting at 5:30.
The Ed Sullivan Theater is dark on Fridays.

4. that's what I thought
MJ's death hadn't been really confirmed by then. Letterman will say something about it Monday, if it is a new show.
