Hilary Rodham Clinton Surprise Guest on Letterman Tonight (Update)

January 2, 2008 by  

While Leno has Mike Huckabee, Letterman has scored Hilary Rodhman Clinton as a special guest when his show returns tonight. Letterman can expect to land the better guests when it comes to the celebs too. Due to the deal his company struck with the WGA, members of the Screen Actors Guild won’t be crossing any picket lines by appearing on Letterman’s couch. Maybe Letterman will take over the ratings race from Leno.

Update: David Letterman walked onstage at the Ed Sullivan Theater in midtown Manhattan sporting a full beard and a WGA-written monologue amid a chorus line of high-kicking showgirls wielding WGA picket signs. News reports said his show opened with a cameo by Hillary Clinton intoning: “Dave’s been off the air for eight long weeks because of the writers strike. Tonight he’s back. Oh well — all good things must come to an end.”  (courtesy of DeadlineHollywood.com)

    […] is Hilary. What can you say that can’t already be said? She’s incredibly smart, she can win the general election, and she looks like an alien. I would vote for an alien if one ran. I’d support the alien […]

    Leno was actually very funny last night…..Letterman was just kinda blah.

    I’ve gotta say, I enjoyed the Letterman Top Ten, but I effing hate Robin Williams so much that I just couldn’t bear to suffer through it, and meet the staff or whatever was a total drag. I ended up flipping over to Jay and then back to Dave at commercials.

    However, no one has anything on Conan at all. WOW. I could watch him sit around and BS about his beard for several more months, if not longer. I laughed and laughed and laughed at “Strike Beard”, the video where he’s annoying people with his guitar and making his action figure play with Abe Lincoln, and the ring spinning … he’s SO funny.

    I only saw a few minutes of Letterman (the part where audience matters were asking questions about the strike) and I found it painfully unfunny. I guess I’m not much of a Letterman fan, although I wouldn’t mind seeing a video of his Top 10 list.
    Leno was surprisingly funny. Could he actually be funnier when he DOESN’T have his writers? I only watched the opening bit of Conan. It was much more obvious he didn’t have writers (since in the opening few minutes he tried to see how long he could spin his wedding ring for).
