To mark the return of Regis Philbin to his talk show with Kelly Ripa this morning, David Letterman appeared on the program to welcome him back (just as Regis had done on his show when Dave had bypass surgery a few years ago).
Said the "gap-toothed TV Boy" (as he once called himself):
“You know, my first bypass was ‘The Tonight Show.’”
Then he added this advice:
“The only thing I can advise both of you is to stay away from ‘The View,’ because they’re dropping like flies over there.”
