It was the end of an era Wednesday night: The last episode for David Letterman, as he heads off into retirement after more than 30 years on the air.
There was a final, all-star celebrity “Top 10” list: “Top 10 Things I’ve Always Wanted To Say To Dave.”
A special appearance by several U.S. presidents: “Our long national nightmare is over.”
A heartfelt, emotional goodbye from Dave, Paul, and the whole crew.
And a musical look back at the show over the decades, headlined by Dave’s good friends, The Foo Fighters.
David Letterman did something special: He brought weirdness to mainstream TV.
With his run now truly over, after three decades and two different networks, let’s take a look at just some of his greatest clips. Of course, any “Top 10” list of Letterman will be extremely incomplete. Accept this then as our humble, grateful tribute to a man who made us smile more times than we can count.
