If David Letterman's only goal for his final weeks as Late Show host is to to welcome a galaxy of A-list stars, he has more than succeeded.
George Clooney, Julia Roberts, Robert Downey Jr., Tom Hanks and Oprah Winfrey are just a few of the top-liners sending off Letterman after more than 20 years behind the desk at the Ed Sullivan Theater.
On Monday, the host announced which celebrities will be appearing on his final 28 broadcasts of the Late Show, airing on CBS over the next month and a half in advance of the show's grand finale on May 20.

Jimmy Fallon had Martin Short, Jerry Seinfeld, and YouTube comedian Miranda Sings as guests on The Tonight Show Monday, and he wrangled them all into one massive game of comic Pictionary. (Important note: Miranda is behaving this way on purpose.)
Everything goes about as well as you'd expect: Seinfeld lapses into his classic exasperated voice during Miranda's turn (which Fallon enjoys imitating at every opportunity), Short gesticulates frantically, and thankfully, no one comes to blows.

Saturday Night Live generally keeps its departed cast members close, unless you've done something to really offend the show. So having Golden Globe winner and Brooklyn Nine-Nine star Andy Samberg on to host the last episode of the show's season wasn't a stretch, though the parade of alumni the show brought out at different points felt appropriately momentous for a season-closer.

When it comes to hosting Saturday Night Live, Justin Timberlake feels right at home.
The singer – who had hosted the show four times before Saturday – called on some of his famous friends to make his fifth stint extra special.
During his opening monologue, Timberlake boasted that he now had membership to the "Five Timers Club," an exclusive New York organization reserved for repeat hosts. Upon arriving, Timberlake, 32, was greeted by Paul Simon, Steve Martin, Dan Aykroyd, Chevy Chase, Martin Short, Alec Baldwin, Tom Hanks and Candice Bergen.

Martin Short gets the award for Classiest Guy in Hollywood this week.
One day after the much buzzed-about Today show incident – in which Kathie Lee Gifford mistakenly asked about his late wife – the actor has spoken out about the gaffe, and his reaction was nothing but gracious.
"I think that it's live television and people make mistakes and there's no ill will intended," Short told E! News. "And I think it's nice to aspire to be that way."

Someone wasn't adequately prepared for her interview Wednesday morning.
In what was clearly a gaffe, Today show host Kathie Lee Gifford, appearing live on the air, asked actor – and widower, since 2010 – Martin Short the secret to his great marriage to wife Nancy, including how they still make each other laugh.
"How many years are you in love with her now?" inquired Gifford.
Short, already looking stricken, quietly replied, "Thirty-six."

A picture-perfect moment, right?
Well, looks like the joke is on Gwyneth, who posted a photo of her meeting comedians Steve Martin and Martin Short at the Vanity Fair party following last Sunday's Academy Awards.
"Dude. Seriously. I love my life," the actress, sporting her glamorous Tom Ford dress, wrote along with the photo, which she published on her WhoSay account that night.
Martin, too, shared similar pictorial evidence of his meeting with Paltrow, posting a slightly different version of the shot on his official Twitter page (see photo below) the same night.
