Letterman Planning ‘Salute To Stupidity’

From Wire Reports

“Late Show With David Letterman” will get stupid next week. Letterman and the show’s producers, who are on hiatus next week, have selected the stupidest stuff that’s ever aired on “Late Show” in its nearly two years on CBS.

“Late Show’s Salute to Stupidity” will feature some really dumb pet tricks, some truly idiotic human ones and a generous selection of guest appearances that can only be described as imbecilic.

In other “Late Show” news, the show will travel to Los Angeles again this November. The first Los Angeles trip took place in May 1994.

$1 mil Internet scavenger hunt

The old denizens of the Internet aren’t going to like this. CompuServe and a dozen other companies are launching a scavenger hunt on the Internet. If you thought the unwashed masses ran wild tying up the system by asking stupid questions before, think of the chaos when there’s a $1 million prize on the line.

The contest starts July 14 with monthly winners leading up to a grand prize winner announced at the Comdex computer show in November. Anyone with access to the Net and the World Wide Web can compete.

Details are available on CompuServe (Go Internet), or on the Web at http:/

‘Leave It to Beaver’ movie?

This week’s TV-sitcom-to-movie project is “Leave It to Beaver,” which “Flintstones” director Brian Levant is absolutely aching to bring to the big screen.

Levant, a “Beaver” freak, reportedly accompanied his pitch to Universal execs with cookies and milk served by Barbara Billingsley, the original June Cleaver.

“The idea is to do a new Cleaver family, with a new Beaver, a new Wally,” Levant told the press. “We’ll rebuild the old house, which is still on the lot.

“I want it to be ready for Oct. 7, 1997, the 40th anniversary of the first episode.” The series ran from 1957 to 1963.
