Karl Malone didn't make the trip to New Jersey with his Jazz teammates today - because he was already in the New York metropolitan area. The Mailman flew in early so that he could be on tonight's "Late Show with David Letterman."

The program, to be taped today at 5:30 p.m. EST, will be broadcast tonight on CBS. It can be seen locally on KUTV, Ch. 2, beginning at 10:35 p.m.
