David Letterman Signs Off From TV in Perfect Fashion - TV.com
"...The overwhelming outpouring of love is perhaps the greatest tribute to and evidence of Letterman's influence and impact and fitting too. The master of irony who was never the most popular late-night host got an adoring public goodbye for the ages. Letterman was not for everybody. He was too cranky, too prickly, too idiosyncratic and in recent years, too out of touch. He could be, like Cher notoriously called him on air in 1986, an "assh---." The thing was he didn't care.His Late Night show on NBC was a haven for his fellow oddballs. It was where he championed underground musicians, experimented with weird bits and Alka-Seltzer suits, and honed the contemporary comic voice irreverent, dry, sardonic, acerbic, subversive that quite simply would not exist if he did conform to expectations. He wasn't trying to please anyone. Except maybe himself. (Insert sly Dave smile here.)..." see full article

David Letterman Leaves Us, Laughing - TIME
"...Were his eyes a touch pink? Maybe, but his voice was steady. He seemed to feel good in the zone knowing, maybe, that he'd just put on a good hour of TV. His last minutes on the air were like his favorite song, Everlong, which the Foo Fighters played over hundreds of stills from Letterman history: emotional but driving, ever letting up, hurtling forward to the end. Until simply, steadily, honestly: All right, that's pretty much all I got. The only thing I have left to do, for the last time on a television program: Thank you and good night. David Letterman, our host, our comedy uncle, our after-hours pal, delivered the laughs one more time. I would have to supply the tears myself. Sorry, Dave. I know you hate this...." see full article

David Letterman's last 'Late Show': A funny, warm, perfect farewell - OregonLive.com
"...t was worth it, to see TV history being made. I did a live-blog report on the show, which you'll find here below. The biggest takeaway: a host who prided himself on being authentic, and who never leaned on showbiz sentimentality, went out being totally true to himself. The emphasis was on comedy, and Dave's comfortable zone of making fun of himself. It also felt like a warm family occasion, with Dave -- who as we know, could be prickly -- relaxing, and thanking everyone who worked on the show, as well as viewers.Dave mostly kept his eyes dry, and let the show zip along on a happy, celebratory note. But by the end, as dozens of images of memorable moments from his NBC show, "Late Night with David Letterman," and the CBS show flew by in a dizzyingly fast montage, it was hard for Dave's longtime fans -- I include myself in that category -- not to get weepy, thinking of all the terrific, nutty, gleeful entertainment he provided for the last 30 years...." see full article

Saying goodbye to David Letterman, the establishment's rebel-in-chief - Entertainment Weekly (blog)
"...David Letterman retired from television Wednesday night, a historic passing that takes from us one of the medium's greatest broadcasters and biggest icons. Naturally, Letterman being Letterman, the self-aware imp tried very hard to take a pin to a moment inflated with so much hot air. His last act as a snarky, unsentimental saboteur of TV tropes: Subverting himself.guests He opened his 6028th and final hour with a gag that had four living presidents quoting Gerald Ford's famous line about Vietnam: Our long national nightmare is over. It culminated with President Obama making deadpan clear that said nightmare was the three decade reign of late night's most unlikely commander-in-chief...." see full article

Top Ten Bittersweet Things About David Letterman's Last Show - Entertainment Weekly (blog)
"...Predictably, the answer is, it was both wonderful and, for the diehard Letterman fan, pretty darned hard to watch a mix that was established right from the very start. Watching Letterman literally sprint across the stage as the show opened, you couldn't help but think, It's nice that Dave is leaving when he is still in command of all his faculties. But you also couldn't help but think, If Dave is still in command of all his faculties, why the hell is the big galoot leaving at all? But leave he did and in a manner which, regardless of an extremely starry finale guest list, reminded you that Letterman was always more interested in making comedy than making celebrity pals...." see full article
