So? Orthodoxy has been 'rated' number two since the great schism in terms of 'audience share.'   Cheesy Cheesy

Which shows he has tenacity and wouldn't give up.  Plus, he's only been head-to-head with the Tonight Show for half that time.

The Late Show was #1 until Hugh Grant appeared on Leno's Tonight Show after Grant's arrest for soliciting a prostitute.  At that point, the Tonight Show took the #1 spot.  Letterman was also #1 vs. Conan O'Brien but lost #1 spot after Leno came back.  Letterman resurrected late night on CBS and was step 1 for resurrecting a network from its geriatric abyss like Murder She Wrote and Touched By an Angel.
