Saying Goodbye to David Letterman: A Look Back at His 33-Year Legacy

Originally posted 05/20/2015 04:00PM

When NBC handed David Letterman Late Night in 1982, his offbeat humor ushered in a new era of late night.

Thirty-three years later, he's stepping down from a late-night landscape that changed around him, having stayed true to himself as the medium changed from appointment viewing to something to be easily digested the next morning in three- to four-minute clips.

"I recognized the value of it," Letterman told The New York Times back in April of his competitors' tendency to gear their shows toward digital audiences. "It's just, I didn't know what to say. You go back to your parents' house, and they still have the rotary phone. It's a little like that."

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon: A History of the 'History of Rap'

When Jimmy Fallon and Justin Timberlake get together, it can only mean one thing: time to set your DVR.

Whether it's The Barry Gibb Talk Show on Saturday Night Live, "#Hashtags" and "Evolution of End Zone Dancing", we know that when these two team up it's going to be magic.

But the real magic happens when they team up to perform the "History of Rap."

The pair offered up Part 5 on the Tonight Show on Friday, and, indeed, it was awesome. But it made us want to take a look back at Parts 1-4.

See Tara Lipinski Re-Enact the Dude's Big Lebowski Dance – on Ice!

Originally posted 02/03/2014 04:00PM



What has Tara Lipinski been doing since she became the youngest gold-medalist in Winter Olympics history at Nagano in 1998? A lot of skating, some acting and a TV-commentator gig, mostly.

She's also, apparently, become quite the fan of The Big Lebowski.

It's for this reason (or the slight resemblance of her last name to that of Jeff Bridge's famous L.A. slacker) that Lipinski agreed to perform the Dude's onscreen dance to Kenny Rogers's "Just Dropped In" for Jimmy Fallon. On ice. While holding a White Russian.

Jimmy Fallon, Seth Meyers Pass the Late Night Torch – in Hilarious Fashion

Originally posted 01/29/2014 09:00AM

Seth Meyers is preparing to take the reins of Late Night from Jimmy Fallon when the latter moves to The Tonight Show, and Fallon had his successor on the show Tuesday night for an important tradition: the passing of the Late Night pickle.

This isn't just Fallon being Fallon, however: Apparently it's a real, longstanding Late Night tradition. David Letterman's staff gave the pickle to Conan O'Brien when he inherited the show, and O'Brien gave it to Fallon when he took over.

Late-Night Hosts Can't Stop Making Jokes About Justin Bieber's Arrest

Originally posted 01/24/2014 11:00AM

Justin Bieber's arrest Thursday for DUI and drag-racing was irresistible fodder for TV's late-night talk-show hosts.

The combination of Bieber's alleged antics (blocking off a residential block in Miami beach to drag-race a rented Lamborghini) and public persona (not quite universally loved) was the equivalent of a slow pitch up the middle for our nation's monologists, and with a full workday to brainstorm their barbs, they did not disappoint.
