Flashes: February 26, 1993

David Letterman made headlines this week

THE FANCIEST DAVE: GE pinheads, NBC weasels, Stupid Human Tricks, and the deal with Paul's shirts — Hyperion promises all this in The Late Shift, which will include the story behind David Letterman's defection to CBS. New York Times reporter Bill Carter is penning the fall book, described as ''a Devil's Candy of the late-night TV business.'' Carter calls his advance for the tell-all ''sizable,'' fueling rumors that he has the inside scoop from Creative Artists Agency chairman Michael Ovitz, who brokered the Letterman deal.
