Chris Stigall: Goodbye, Mr. Letterman.

The biggest send off on TV needs the biggest stars Jerry Seinfeld, Barbara Walters, Tina Fey and Chris Rock are just some of the celebrities seen entering the Ed Sullivan Theater to be a part of the last “Late Show.” Tom Briglia from Linwood, New Jersey didn’t score tickets to see Letterman’s historic 33 year late night host run end, but he’s got a great view of the side entrance where the stars arrive.Letterman, 68, had already welcomed a galaxy of stars during his final weeks as the show’s host (Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Julia Roberts, President Barack Obama, Sarah Jessica Parker, Billy Crystal, Alec Baldwin, Tina Fey, Scarlett Johansson, John Travolta and Bruce Willis – to name just a few).NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — After three decades of having his own talk show, David Letterman is stepping down from his post as the “Late Night” king. “Fishing!

As of May 20, 2015, there will have been 6,028 broadcasts of Letterman’s late night talk shows. “Late Night with David Letterman” had 1,810 broadcasts and ran for 595 weeks and The Late Show with David Letterman has had 4,214 broadcasts, as well as four primetime specials, and has run for 1,135 weeks. Bill Murray was the first guest on the premiere broadcasts of both “Late Night” on Feb. 1, 1982 and “The Late Show” on CBS on August 30, 1993. He doesn’t like people, I mean, except for showing up here, he doesn’t like people, so I think fishing would be perfect,” added Terry Scott of Pittsburgh. “I would get some stretchy pants and lay down and just enjoy your family, maybe take your son out and do some parent-teacher interviews,” said Patricia Myhill of Ontario, Canada. “And I’m telling you, Sunday night is it. Starting from his debut on CBS, Forbes compared Letterman’s guests to our most recent lists of the world billionaires, America’s richest people and most powerful celebrities to see which Forbes list members frequented his program.

One of the most memorable moments occurred in 2012 when Letterman asked Trump about his endorsement of Mitt Romney during the most recent presidential election and what the two discussed when they spoke. Trump mentioned Romney’s stance on China before saying the country was “ripping our hearts out.” Later in the segment, Letterman displayed Trumps clothing line and asked where his ties were made. We’ll go on a boat,” said Aurelio Caloiero of Miami Beach. “I think he should go back to doing the weather if he gets a chance, because I think people today don’t get the weather the way he used to get it,” said Peter Bergman of Aberdeen, New Jersey.

While Letterman poked fun at Trump, he let Stewart steal the spotlight as he described rolling through Cairo in a caravan of cars as the protests in Tahrir Square were heating up in 2011. Ellen DeGeneres, No. 5 on the Celebrity List and host of her eponymous talk show, took a page from Letterman’s book by reading one of his infamous top 10 lists. This really unusual looking man who made me (and millions like me) feel like we were in on this massive prank on conventional television as we knew it. His total lack of hipness made him “buzz-worthy.” He was the underdog who always seemed to get the shaft and wasn’t respected by “the suits.” There’s the rub, I guess. One of my favorite pull quotes from an article hung on my mirror. “David Letterman has never cried on Oprah, has never posed in the kitchen for People.

He has ignored all the rules and he won anyway.” The year I graduated high school, my dad surprised me with a trip to New York to see this thing that was my universe in person. My college girlfriend (now wife), Christine likely wondered if I was being honest about my sexuality, as she would later tell me she remembers staring at big pictures of Dave overhead while we…studied. By my junior year in college, with the help of some great friends and about thirty student volunteers – I realized my dream of hosting my own television talk show.

Through almost literal force and harassment, he pressed me to put together my first resume and cover letter until I dropped it in the mail addressed to “Late Show.” Patiently we waited by the mailbox. The woman in “Late Show’s” human resources gave me a brief overview of the building and sent me department by department around the building to meet with staffers of the show. You got in the door of your idol and you’ve coolly talked your way into the mail room.” The woman pressed. “C’mon, I know that’s what you’re supposed to say. According to the show’s archivist at the time, no intern or staff member new to the show had ever been cast in a segment as early as day two on the job.
