"Is it Coxsackie?!" "Yes, it is."

Andrew Cuomo appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman Tuesday night to read the top 10 list: "Top Ten Ways New York State Is Better Than Ever." The clip is embedded above. Oh, Coxsackie.

Cuomo has been making the media rounds this week as part of the promotion of his new memoir. He was also on Charlie Rose Tuesday night -- it doesn't look like the video's been posted yet. We caught a good chunk of the interview, which was interesting in a few ways. Among them: Cuomo tried to push back against critics from inside in the Democratic Party that he's not progressive enough by trying to reframe the idea of what "progressive" means.

By the way: Gannett's Joseph Spector bring ups the $16 million CBS is getting from the state to keep to the Late Show in New York after Letterman is replaced by Stephen Colbert.


The gov didn't look very comfortable. You'd think he'd be used to reading off a teleprompter by now.

And why oh why do people continue to spell NIAGARA like Viagra with an "N"?!

I've seen looser bodies in a morgue. Glad I was watching Jimmy Fallon...

No Dave, he didn't say Coke-sack-ee.

I wasn't going to watch, but then I thought, "Misspelled Niagara? REALLY?" so I had to watch. Yeah, Governor Andy was pretty wooden; Dave still isn't funny, but ok, that Yankee Stadium joke was pretty good.

NO. It is NOT coke-sack-ee. It's more cook-sah-kee.
