As you probably know, David Letterman said goodbye to latenigth TV last night. Letterman has delivered tons of unforgettable bits and interviews over the years, but my personal favorites are his Top Ten lists and, sure enough, Letterman included an especially epic, star-studded one during the final episode of the Late Show. Check out “Top Ten Things I’ve Always Wanted to Say To Dave” for yourself below:
It’s hard to pick a favorite amongst Alec Baldwin, Barbara Walters, Steven Martin, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Peyton Manning, Tina Fey and Bill Murray, but I’m always especially amused by Carrey’s antics, Fey was spot-on as usual, and the look on Seinfeld’s face when Louis-Dreyfus came out and said, “Thanks for letting me take part in another hugely disappointing series finale,” was absolutely priceless. But, as funny as the segment was, it also evoked some serious nostalgia for what Letterman’s accomplished over the years and the talent he’s inspired to become good friends of the show.
In case you missed Letterman’s big finish last night, I highly recommend scrolling through the show’s YouTube channel where you can find a whole bunch of highlights from the episode. Stephen Colbert is taking over for Letterman with the very first episode of Late Show with Stephen Colbert premiering on Tuesday, September 8th.
