December 19th

All New!

Scott Ryan is the author of "The Last Days of Letterman" - an incredibly detailed account of the final weeks leading up to the end of one of the most storied late night talk shows of all time. Scott chats with Dan about those final weeks and the unparalelled access he was granted to the people who made The Late Show day in and day out.

A holiday tradition returns, albeit, on tape. It's just not Christmas without an annual performance of Darlene Love's classic, "Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)." Recorded prior to COVID-19, Anna Roman returns for lead vocals, along with Brian Nadeau & The Nite Show Band, Opus Trio, and more friends to make the wall of sound come to life for the holidays.

Sock Puppet Santa visits the show via Zoom, talking about physical distancing and how that relates to his approach for Christmas. Will he be jolly? Or his usual cantankerous self. Find out!
