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

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.
