Dave's first foray into late-night TV (make that late-late-night---he followed Carson) helped redefine the genre, making it edgier and hipper. Letterman also honed some trademark segments (including his Top 10 lists and 'Stupid Pet Tricks') on this show (called 'Late Night'), and when he moved to CBS in 1993 he also took his 'Late Night' bandleader, Paul Shaffer, with him.
