Quickie guest host redux

Of all the guest hosts on the Dave Letterman show this week, Elvis Costello was by far the best in my book. I always really liked his music, but I had no idea how incredibly talented he is beyond music. In his opening monologue he sang a little ode, which I bet he (or somebody) scratched out just that day. In it, he wished Dave well, and he asked for his own talk show. Yeah, he should definitely have his own talk show. Very cool.

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Megan Mullally of Will & Grace fame. Not only was she the host, she sang a song as the musical guest. Wow!!! She can really sing. Very cool. As I'm watching her, I started wondering what else I might have seen her in, so I looked her up on the IMDB. And, I realized I've probably seen her in a lot of TV shows, but just never knew who she was.

Whoopi. What can you say about Whoopi? She is so cool. She could probably have her on talk show, too. Or, maybe she already has.

I also watched the night Vince Vaughn hosted, but he really didn't do anything for me. Maybe because I don't know any of his work. Actually, I thought he was a country singer.

I hesitate to say anything negative about Dave's guest hosts, but the one disappointment of the week was Will Ferrell. I guess I just expected more funny from him. I don't know. The highlight of that show was when his dad, Lee Ferrell, keyboardist for the Righteous Brothers stood up in the audience. That was kinda cool.
