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?)

Wednesday's episode of Schitt's Creek is called "The Walk In" for a reason: Snotty son David Rose (Daniel Levy) finds his parents Moira (Catherine O'Hara) and Johnny (Eugene Levy) in flagrante delicto.
Since the riches-to-rags Roses are currently in very close quarters after losing everything, David easily storms out through the adjoining door so he can express his revulsion to sister Alexis (Annie Murphy).

Do you enjoy things that are gut-wrenchingly funny? Laughing out loud? Spit-takes? Then tune in to new comedy Schitt's Creek, premiering Wednesday on cable's Pop network (formerly TVGN) at 10 p.m.
This new single-cam comedy from Canada stars longtime comedic duo and friends Catherine O'Hara and Eugene Levy, as well as Levy's son Daniel (co-creator of the show), hilarious newcomer Annie Murphy, and Chris Elliott. It's a comedy-gold cast – and the first time O'Hara and Levy have ever starred on the small screen together. (Though of course, you've seen them act together in Waiting for Guffman and Best in Show.)
The premise is funny enough: The Roses are a super-loaded family (as in, mega-rich, very eccentric and spoiled) but lose everything they own thanks to a shady business manager. The only asset they have left is a tiny, backwater town called "Schitt's Creek," which Eugene Levy's character bought for his son as a joke for his birthday one year. The Roses have to relocate to the town, live out of a dirty motel and deal with grimy real-world characters and situations, all of which are gross and beneath them.
