From an article in the September 29th issue of Rolling Stone talking about the early days of Late Night with David Letterman:
At a grocery store on New York's Upper West Side, [Chris] Elliott ran into Mark Hamill, then at the height of his Star Wars fame. Hamill not only recognized Elliott but admitted that he'd been videotaping Late Night off of his TV from the very start. Hamill was so worried the show would get canceled - "It was so far ahead of the curve," he says now - that he wanted to make sure he had his own copies. Later, when Late Night researchers needed a list of every "Viewer Mail" segment, they turned to Hamill, who had maintained meticulously annotated notebooks of the sketches on every show.
