Dan Patrick And David Letterman Had An Icy Interview Last Night


It all started because David Letterman had no idea what The Audience Network was. From there, Dan Patrick’s visit to the Late Show only got weirder.

Patrick, the studio host for NBC’s Football Night in America and host of The Dan Patrick Show, a national radio show that is also televised on DirectTV’s The Audience Network, was a guest with Dave last night. Letterman, in his sometimes prickly Letterman way, noted that he had absolutely no idea what The Audience Network was right before Patrick came out. Patrick, ever the proud sort, didn’t take too kindly to Dave’s prickliness. So he was prickly back. Basically, there was a lot of prickliness going back and forth.

Watch video of two broadcasting professionals trying to out-dick each other, here. CBS has more clips on the Late Show website.

Part 1: Dave doesn’t know what The Audience Network is

Part 3: I Just Saw How Dumb You Were, Dave (fast forward to 1:45)

    Nah, I didn’t see it as them being icy or  prickly with each other. I just thought it was a good rapport between the two have a ton of mutual respect for the other. Just two broadcasting legends — albeit in different fields — being so entirely comfortable with each other that they can bust balls and neither is perturbed by it. Very a la Charles Grodin and Carson back in the day.

    I thought Dan was a haughty, self important a-hole. He doesn’t hold a candle to Letterman.

    I agree with Redroc… it was funny and a very entertaining interview.

    So I assume what you guys are saying is that there may be some acting involved here? You could be right-I guess I got sucked in…

    Dan was a haughty, self important a-hole. You WERE right

    Sorry but not knowing basic facts about the guest you have on your show is just careless. Dan had the right to be pissy, that’s very unprofessional of David.

    Their both lame, white, self important pricks. The world would be a better place without both of them.
