Question by Raf: is the late show with david letterman ever live?
when are these late shows like letterman, conan, jimmy fallon, etc, live? i know they are on tv from 11:30 to 12:30 eastern time but i feel like they are all reruns. how can i tell when they are live? are they only live certain days of the week or something like that?

Answer by Cobra Commander
no, never. They tape around 5pm daily.

IN fact Dave tapes 2 shows on Monday. The second show is aired on Friday. Dave only has a 4 day work week.
