Adam Sandler was asked to stand in as a last-minute replacement for David Letterman on the Tuesday edition of the Late Show this week, as Dave had to go home ill. Dave came in to work as normal for rehearsals, but felt too ill to go ahead with the taping of the show. Dave is thought to have stomach flu. This is thought to be the first time Dave has turned up at the Theatre, but been unable to go on with the show. Wednesday’s show had already been taped, so that went ahead as planned, with Dave. Thursday and Friday slots are reruns, as planned – due to basketball coverage on CBS. Adam Sandler – who brought his dog Matzoball into the guest seat – was quite funny, but he admits he had never interviewed anyone before.
