Letterman- Corden Ratings Soar as Dave Hits 10 Year High and Sting Bridges Generations


David Letterman’s final episode hit a 10 year high in early local ratings reports. And his show pushed James Corden’s late start “Late Late Show” up a record for its short life so far. The big winner was Sting, who bridged the two shows in a bit following Letterman, sitting with Corden in front of the Ed Sullivan Theater in a sketch where he sang “Every Breath You Take.”
