News: On Friday, David Letterman interviewed Paris Hilton. Unfortunately, the interview went south when Letterman kept on asking Paris about her stint in prison.
Analysis: I felt sorry for Paris, but she needs to learn how to laugh off or make fun of her time in jail. She should have known that Letterman would ask questions about that. Martha Stewart did a much better job in handling those kind of questions when she went on Letterman.
By the way, to appreciate just how large 2 million plus viewers is: that’s more than half the average number of viewers Letterman gets. If YouTube views were counted in the Nielsen ratings, Letterman would’ve easily beaten Jay Leno for that episode. If CBS is smart, it would post Letterman clips on YouTube everyday.
