While others count David Letterman being on the air for thirty three years, I count from his daytime show in 1980. Six thousand shows over thirty five years, three time slots and two networks is clear evidence that he knew he was funny. He did not want the biggest audience, he wanted the biggest audience who laughed. He was actually on the air longer than Johnny Carson. There were many reasons Letterman retired, one of them probably that Jay Leno retired first. Now no one can dispute who was better. Time to recognize.
