Winner of the week
David Letterman: The gap-toothed host is narrowing the ratings divide with Jay Leno: Late Show’s viewership is up 17 percent since last year, making The Tonight Show’s lead its smallest since 1996.
Loser of the week
Nancy Travis: CBS canceled the curly-haired comedian’s second sitcom in three years. Almost Perfect was yanked in 1996, and now Work With Me has been fired after four episodes.
