    How were you watching Letterman every night in high school? Wasn't it on a little late? I think by high school I was watching Johnny's monologue and then going to bed. I watched the whole show and Letterman on Friday nights only. You must have been operating on no sleep!

Especially if you were in the Easter or Pacific time zone.
I lived in one of the few unique areas of the country where we were on Mountain time but got our TV from Central time zone stations, so Johnny Carson was on at 9:30 and Letterman at 10:30. But even with that earlier schedule, I would have had a hard time functioning at school the next day staying up until 11:30 each night to watch Letterman.

I lived in Pacific time, so Carson didn't start until 11:30. That's why I only watched the monologue and then went to bed.
