On May 20th, David Letterman said his final farewell to the Late Show with David Letterman and late night TV- with a television career spanning almost 35 years. As I watched the final episode, it was hard not to get a little teary-eyed. Since David Letterman's Late Night Show on NBC started before I was born, he's always been on tv in some capacity all of my life and I have many fond memories of watching the show with friends and family, so not being able to see the show anymore is comparable to loosing a dear uncle or a good friend.
Here are a few of my favorite moments from the show:
- When David Letterman and Jay Thomas took turns throwing footballs to try and knock a pizza (with a meatball) out of a Christmas Tree.
- David Letterman trying to guess what pies his mother had made for Thanksgiving.
- And of course...the Top 10 Lists
While I am sad for David Letterman's show to end, I am looking forward to seeing Stephen Colbert take the Late Night stage. What are your favorite moments from David Letterman's Late Show? Let me know in the comments below.
