David Letterman sadly says goodbye as the famous “Late Show” host.

David Letterman retired Wednesday after giving us 33 years and 6,028 broadcasts of his Late Shows on CBS and NBC. A few months ago Letterman stirred up conversation with President Obama when he mentioned the retirement but it came quicker than one might of thought.

Letterman’s final “Late Show” ran longer than usual, 17 minutes over. CBS already planned to let the show go with out cutting it to give the beloved host all his goodbye’s. No only did Letterman get to say goodbye to the audience and production team but old friends came on the show to see him. Jerry Seinfeld, Chris Rock, Jim Carrey, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Barbara Walters, Peyton Manning, Alex Baldwin and Tina Fey of course. The rock band Foo Fighters performed their best hit for the finale show of Letterman as well.

In the last few weeks Letterman had a few visits from entertaining old friends, Bill Murray, Tom Hanks, George Clooney and Julia Roberts. Anticipating the end, viewers sent Letterman to the top of the Late Show’s ratings the week before last for the first time since Jimmy Fallon took over on the NBC “Tonight” show.

Audience at the final Letterman show expressed that Letterman seemed very sad but he tired to hid it. After dedicating 33 years of your life to a show which you met so many influential people, Letterman was probably extremely emotional.

The “Late Show” show will still continue but the new question is who will be the next host? Will it be someone as good as Letterman? As dedicated? Chris Rock posted on his twitter a picture of him sitting at the “Late Show” desk with the caption,
“And the new host of the late show is”

Could it be true? Stay tuned for the updates!
