ThinkstockPhotos-472830958

DAVID LETTERMAN signed off for good last night with a show that was heavy on clips from his last 30-odd years on TV.  But one of the highlights was an all-star list of the “Top 10 Things I’ve Always Wanted to Say to Dave”. It was delivered by, in this order, Alec Baldwin, Barbara Walters, Steve Martin, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Peyton Manning, Tina Fey, and Bill Murray.

Julia had the best line . . . quote, “Thanks for letting me take part in another hugely disappointing series finale.”  Seinfeld’s reaction was pretty priceless . . . not that he didn’t know it was coming, of course.
