Comment: Letterman is still making the Late Night world roll over and play dead. The Prez leading the pack, with Tina Fey in the middle, and  Mumford And Sons and the Dave Matthews Band bringing up the rear, it is all just another reason to tear your eyes away from Fallon for the last two weeks of history. Meanwhile, though, following Blur (and puppy races) this week, look for Noel Gallagher next week. I wonder if Noel will play a gig?
