Over more than 30 years on the air, David Letterman went from the class clown of late night to one of its most respected icons.
In the '80s, Letterman's Midwestern snark and ironic sensibilities were considered groundbreaking in the comparatively staid world of Johnny Carson and Tom Snyder; now they've provided the groundwork for many of today's mainstream comedy trends.
Now that Letterman has officially said farewell to late night, let's look back at the 10 best things Letterman gave us. (Could it have been any other number?)

It's a New Year and resolutions abound. For many, 2014 is the year to get fit.
Workout videos are always there to help you shed pounds in the security of your own home. But before you dust off the VCR and pop in Buns of Steel, you should know all your options.

Corbin Bleu is a former High School Musical star who is competing on season 17 of Dancing with the Stars with season 13 champion Karina Smirnoff. The Disney alum will blog for PEOPLE about his experience on ABC's hit show.
I’m relieved last week is over! We were so excited about the Game of Thrones dance from the previous week and then we ended up with lower scores. This time we really honed in on all the technique and making sure there was no lift or semi-lift and we received high scores. We were excited.
Nicole's elimination was nuts! It goes to show you never know what's going to happen. It's all about the votes. Nicole has a very large fan base with all of her Jersey Shore people, so it was definitely a shocker. It reminds me you have to just enjoy the opportunity every week.

Karina Smirnoff is a former Dancing with the Stars champion, winning the coveted mirror-ball trophy in season 13 with J.R. Martinez. The longtime competitor will blog for PEOPLE.com about competing with former High School Musical star Corbin Bleu in season 17.
It was such a shock to see Nicole get eliminated. She did such a fantastic job on the show. And you got to see Nicole as the mother. The way she loves her baby is awesome. She's so real, but at this point it would be really difficult to see anyone leave. You usually know who's leaving and who's staying by mid-season, but it's been so unpredictable. It's a very tough season.
Corbin and I were freaking out when we had bad scores and not the best dance. We were like,'That's it. We're going home.' It's like full-on panic. We take it so personal and so emotional and you start freaking out when the red like comes on. Corbin and I we're swaying from left to right because it’s so difficult to stand still.
