David Letterman Signs Off: His Final Words

David Letterman closed out his final night hosting CBS Late Show with a very long talk: The last six weeks it's been crazy. People have been saying lovely things about us, and it's really been over the top. And I can't tell you how flattering, embarrassing and gratifying it has all been. I have two things to say about all this: We have done over 6,000 shows and I was here for most of them and I can tell you a pretty high percentage of those shows absolutely sucked.   Read More... //deadline.com/2015/05/david-letterman-signs-off-final-words-late-show-1201430773/

'Late Show With David Letterman' finale: Paul Shaffer has 'absolutely no plans'

If not for his five years in the "Saturday Night Live" band, Paul Shaffer might not have been on David Letterman's radar.The wry music director for both of the host's late-night shows -- first on NBC, then on CBS -- also participated in some "SNL" sketches during his tenure there (1975-80), so when Letterman went looking for an all-purpose on-air comrade, Shaffer got the call. Their weeknight partnership of more than three decades concludes when the longest-running host in late-night history ends the almost 22-year run of CBS' "Late Show With David Letterman" Wednesday (May 20).Shaffer has done many other things, such as being the musical director for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony since its inception, and he tellsZap2it"it was all because of myassociation with Dave. When they called me for this, they did say, 'We want somebody that Dave can play off of.'

Seth Meyers recreates David Letterman's 'Late Night' opening

The David Letterman tributes are coming from all corners of late night as the "Late Show" host approaches his final show. Tuesday (May 19) on "Late Night" -- the show Letterman launched 33 years ago -- Seth Meyers offered a novel tip of the cap to his predecessor.Meyers and the "Late Night" staff recreated Letterman's old "Late Night" opening, filming in the same locations (though some names have changed) and using the same theme music. Announcer Ron McClary even throws in a zinger at the end: "And now, a man who knows that it's Letterman's show and he's just borrowing it ... Seth Meyers!"Meyers also learned something in the process. "The biggest difference between New York City in 1982," he says, "and now, today in New York City -- so, so many fewer pornography theaters."Here's the old "Late Night" opening, for comparison's sake. Meyers' team did a pretty nice job with the tribute, yes?... //feedproxy.google.com/~r/Zap2it/~3/ZfOKhJw_ygI/seth_meyers_recreates_david_lettermans_late_night_opening-2015-05

Bob Dylans Final Letterman Performance

  Now that you know the story behind Bob Dylan's first Letterman performance (if you don't, it's a damn good read), it's only right to watch his last. Dylan appeared on Letterman's penultimate Late Night show Tuesday night, his first time on that stage in 22 years, for a performance of a Frank Sinatra essential, "The Night We Called It a Day" which is both a touching farewell to Letterman and sneaky promo for Dylan's latest Sinatra covers album. Well played!   Read More...   //www.vulture.com/2015/05/bob-dylans-final-letterman-performance.html

David Letterman Gets Serious: 7 Somber Late Show Moments (Video)

While David Letterman is known for his comedic skits, hilarious monologues and Top Ten lists, there were also some serious moments on the Late Show with David Letterman . However, Letterman always managed to find the right balance between gravity and humor when addressing his audience. Amid audience laughter, Letterman would often get teary-eyed as well. His most famous monologue (and some might say one of the finestmoments in the history of TV) was the post-9/11 monologue, in which he commemorated all the firefighters and policemen who lost their lives that day.   Read More... //www.thewrap.com/david-letterman-gets-serious-7-somber-late-show-moments-video/
