Pick the talk-show host you'd prefer to see





I'd go to see Letterman. Jon Stewart would be a close second.

15. This is the correct answer

Love the You Tube videos of his interactions.

Cavett was on Donahue one time, with a couple of other former talk show hosts. Sad to say, but Dick blew them off the stage with his collection of reminiscences, war stories, and just plain hilarious observations. I don't think he intended to dominate, it just worked out that way. At one point, a woman in the audience had the mic and observed that Dick was a funny guy: Had he ever considering doing stand-up or writing comedy? Cavett leapt to his feet in mock indignation ("Madam!" while Donahue put himself between Cavett and the woman, hastily explaining that Cavett had indeed worked as a comic and a comic writer, winning many awards and having a great career.

11. Johnny Carson.

I know he's died, but he was the King.

No one can replace him.

16. Who I go with depends on the guests.

But, I'll tell you who I wouldn't go see: Leno, Fallon, or Arsenio.

18. I got so many laughs out of Letterman back in the day

But there are clips that people have highlighted recently to show how he was, at times, a bully and sexually harassed some of his female guests. It really wasn't appropriate behavior. It was the sort of thing he could get away with then, but not today. I'd like to think he'd know better now.
