Nothing says "Yuletide" like a disillusioned Bill Murray shrug. Netflix has acquired A Very Murray Christmas, a holiday special – and "homage to the classic variety show" – which stars the iconic actor, as himself, worrying that his TV show will be ruined by a terrible New York City snowstorm. But Netflix promises a happy ending in their brief plot summary: "Through luck and perseverance, guests arrive at the Carlyle hotel to help him; dancing and singing in holiday spirit."
A Very Murray Christmas was directed by Sofia Coppola, co-written by Coppola, »
David Letterman's send-off carried on everlong into the night! After the Foo Fighters capped off the final episode of the Late Show With David Letterman on Wednesday with "Everlong," a tune very near and dear to the outgoing host's heart, the party continued into the night. The Late Show staff, Dave Grohl and his bandmates and a bunch of the celebrities who appeared on the show to read the last-ever Top Ten list, including Jim Carrey, Tina Fey and Steve Martin, all trooped over to the nearby Museum of Modern Art to fete Letterman—who looked as if he raided pal Bill Murray's closet before leaving the Ed Sullivan Theatre.

Last night was a historic occasion as David Letterman said goodbye to the Late Show after having been its host for over twenty years. And over the course of those two decades, perhaps no segment on Letterman’s show was as beloved as his “Top Ten” lists, which is why last night’s final one was extra special. Instead of going through the list himself, Letterman invited ten celebrity guests who were friends of the Late Show to deliver the “Top Ten Things I’ve Always Wanted to Say to David Letterman.” As you can see for yourself in the video below, the very last “Top Ten” list brought out a parade of stars, from Peyton Manning to Barbara Walters to Bill Murray. It also featured the likes of Tina Fey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Chris Rock, Jim Carrey, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Martin, and Alec Baldwin. Here’s how the list shook »
