80. of course you should be offended by sexism
I don't, however, see the David Letterman show as sexist. Heck, two of his executive producers are feminist women (each, apparently, with a sense of humor).

I doubt I would watch the hypothetical show you describe -- unless it was good, but I wouldn't mind if other people did. People like to watch pretty people. Men AND women. Pretty people are nice to look at. I wish I looked like a movie star and more people wanted to look at me.

I just don't think that David Letterman is the devil because he sometimes has the "Grinder Girl" (her name is Kiva Kahl) on his show, and doubt she does either. He's the most genuine host on television, and when he has political guests on, he's the toughest interviewer as well. On top of that, he gives a lot of money to very worthy charities. And you say he's sexist because he sometimes features a performance artist that happens to be a very sexy woman?
