STAGE TUBE: Letterman Celebrates 20 Years on the Late Show
On Thursday night, David Letterman celebrated his 20th year on CBS Bill Murray, who was Letterman's first guest on the Late Show on August 30, 1993.
When Murray, now 62 years old, came onto the stage, Letter man said, "Wow...Delightful. I didn't know you had a dog." Murray responded, "I had to get something that went with this outfit," then laterjackhammered the floor and found a time capsule filled with things from 1993 (included was a newspaper with a headline about Jay Leno, and a hairpiece Murray said Letterman had worn on his first show.)
