It was a momentous night in TV history, and in person its host didn’t turn a hair – unlike Chris Rock, who seemed moved by the passing of a comedy era
It’s not often you get to witness comedy or television history in person (never mind both), but that’s exactly what a couple of hundred audience members experienced after being lucky enough to get tickets to the final episode of David Letterman’s television career, an American institution that wrapped up on Wednesday after 33 years. I was one of those people, chosen randomly on a fluke, and it was an overwhelming experience.
Outside the Ed Sullivan Theater in Midtown Manhattan, the mood was electric. While orderly, there were hordes of people – from dozens of reporters wielding microphones asking bystanders their favourite Letterman moment while their news trucks idled close by, to people taking one last selfie in front »

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 »

New York (AP) -- The Top 10 list on David Letterman's final show before retirement on Wednesday, delivered by celebrities. The category was "Things I've Always Wanted to Say to Dave.'' 10.

After David Letterman's final opening monologue, he handed over the reins to some of the Late Show's frequent guests. Alec Baldwin, Steve Martin, Jerry Seinfeld, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jim Carrey, Barbara Walters, Peyton Manning, Bill Murray, Tina Fey and Chris Rock all showed up to take jabs at the host with the final list, "Top 10 Things I've Always Wanted to Say to David Letterman."

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 »

I’ve got to admit: he’s been clever here. The jokes weren’t the sharpest at the start but he’s really let the show do the talking all night, dropping in clips that really communicate how much a part of Us »

The man who for years gave TV viewers Stupid Pet Tricks served them up a simple, human one instead: a definitive goodbye.
David Letterman brought 33 years of latenight antics to a close late Wednesday afternoon by taping his last broadcast of CBS’ “The Late Show.” In the final show, slated to be broadcast later this evening, the host acted as if he was emceeing just one more program, based on a screening of the first two segments made for reporters Wednesday night.
“His demeanor seemed to me as it always is. He did not seem emotional at all,” said David Oshinsky, a 45-year-old attorney who attended the taping of Letterman’s finale. “He was clearly cognizant it was the last show, but you would not have read that,” he added.
