Trivia
David Letterman originally wanted to call Paul Shaffer's musical ensemble "The NBC Orchestra," but that name was already taken by Doc Severinsen and company on The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson (1962). Letterman settled for the name "Paul Shaffer and the World's Most Dangerous Band," but he got his way in the end: when Letterman and Shaffer defected to CBS, they changed the name of Shaffer's ensemble to "The CBS Orchestra."

Quotes
Himself - Announcer: People always ask me, 'Big Red, what's your secret to scoring with a different hot chick every single night of the week?' You want to know how I land the really wild babes? I clean my dishes with Ajax.

Q
Why is it always daytime during the outdoor scenes?
A
The show is actually taped in the afternoon, and edited before it is aired. Therefore the street scenes and the Deli sections take place in the afternoon as well.
