Pale Force!

For fans of Conan O'Brien and Jim Gaffigan, there's good stuff here ...

Katie Couric was her old perky self on Letterman last night, and funny as ever. Talking about her plight to find the perfect sign-off, she mentioned fielding viewers suggestions and read some of them to Dave. Among them:

"Here kitty, kitty, kitty" (If you watch Letterman regularly, you'll understand ...)

"Oh snap, look what time it is"

"True that peeps!"

(via Letterman) "Suck on that, losers"

"Thanks for watching. I'm Katie Couric. And I'm not just for breakfast anymore."

(via Bob Barker) "I'm Katie Couric. Thanks for watching. Don't forget to spay and neuter your pets."

... good stuff. Still not a fan of her broadcast. And I'm not surprised it's slipping in the ratings.

... Kates and I saw one of the funniest commercials we've seen in a long time last night ...

... The opening shot shows a woman knelt over her flower garden and putting a spray on the plants. A neighbor looks over the fence and asks, "Hey, where'd you get that fertilizer?" The woman answers, "Oh just something I found at the store." ... then a pan of the woman's yard shows the flowers disintegrating, the house falling apart, bare trees and a clump of leaves falling on the woman ...

... Replay the opening shot again. The neighbor looks over the fence again and asks, "Hey, where'd you get that spray?" This time, the woman answers, "It's something I found on Yahoo." And suddenly the entire yard springs to life, the flowers bloom. And a little white dog climbs out from beneath the ground, comes to all fours and shakes the dirt off. The woman, still knelt over her garden, has a puzzled look and says, "Scruffy?" Then a little girl runs from her nearby swing and exclaims "Scruffy, you're alive!"
