David Letterman's set of apologies on Monday night, combined with appearances by Steve Martin and Martin Short garnered the late night show more market share than any show NBC had in prime time. Even if the public hasn't forgiven Letterman (yet) they like watching whatever he's doing right now.

We listed a few premieres from the Lifetime network yesterday which reminded us that we hadn't heard from the Hallmark Channel anytime recently but what we did hear from Hallmark about was their customized paper plate service which is how we made the lovely paper plate of David Letterman to the right. For Halloween we suggest using the same template but putting Glenn Beck's face in there instead of Dave's.
