NBC allowed CBS to play Letterman’s Late Night clips after some resistance and Leno concerns
NBC initially showed “resistance” and “some pushback” in allowing CBS to use David Letterman’s old Late Night clips for tonight’s 90-minute primetime special due to concerns that it would dredge up the Jay Leno controversy. That’s according to Vinnie Favale, CBS’ vice president for late-night, East Coast, who was in charge of putting the special together, says in an interview with Howard Stern. “Ultimately, they were great. But it wasn’t like ‘sure, we’ll give you some clips,'” Favale tells Stern, adding that the special isn’t about Leno in any way. Favale also says that the special was put together at the last minute, with two weeks advance notice.

This week’s Mad Men was 10 years in the making for Peggy and Joan
“This was,” says Sonia Soraiya, “a fist-pumping, couch-yelling, joyous-whooping episode of Mad Men—or at least it was from halfway through on toward the end. After a parade of indignities for both Peggy and Joan—indignities that deliberately recall the struggle they both endured to carve out a place for themselves at Sterling Cooper & Partners—the back half of the episode is all spice and glory, a little bit of justice, a little bit of not-giving-a-f*ck.” PLUS: Peggy meets F*ck Up Some Commas, Joan has become Mad Men‘s most tragic character, will all the main characters ever be together again?, ACLU tweets support for Joan, and were the villains too cartoonish?

Nirvana fans will have to watch HBO’s Montage of Heck more than once
“At more than two hours in length,” Hank Stuever says of the Kurt Cobain documentary airing tonight, “Montage of Heck can’t help but have a Christmas-morning quality to it: Here is more material we’ve not yet seen or heard, chronologically displayed like the treasure trove it is. Most of it is of an intensely personal nature, with the noble (if unfulfilled) goal of becoming the definitive account.”
