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. (Check out Letterman's 9 Most Unforgettable Late Show Moments.)

The long wait for Game of Thrones is nearly over: The fourth season of the HBO fantasy series premieres Sunday night. But for fans who might need a refresher, one helpful YouTube user has come along with a summary of the show's first three seasons.

There's just one twist: It's entirely in emoji.

In "Game of Phones," the labyrinthine mythology of Westeros is reduced to a series of comical cartoons that neatly outline the characters and stakes at play in the series. (You will not be surprised to see that the skull features very prominently.)

Monday night's finale of How I Met Your Mother was arguably the most disastrously received series ender since Lost. Its missteps were legion (spoiler alert) – killing off the Mother, throwing away the Barney-Robin relationship – but most complaints boiled down to the same source: Creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas were too in love with the road map they'd created years ago, to the detriment of the finale's emotional thrust.

Now one helpful fan has come along to undo all that bad work. Using a few simple edits, YouTube user Ricardo J. Dylan has given viewers the finish they wanted all along, one that preserves the series' romantic soul while jettisoning some of the finale's other … distractions.

Josh Elliott says he did not leave Good Morning America for a higher salary.

"In the end, it had nothing to do with money," Elliott, 42, told PEOPLE in an exclusive statement, speaking for the first time since announcing he is exiting the No. 1 morning show for a job at NBC Sports.

Though the popular news anchor declined to comment on specific figures – a source says ABC offered him $5 million but he asked for $10 million, while another source says Elliott will be paid about $4 million a year by NBC – he said: "There were two great offers on the table, and it certainly was a difficult choice to make. I feel I made the best one."

Michael Strahan may soon join Good Morning America, he confirmed on Wednesday morning Live! – with some reservations.

Though ABC declined to comment, a source confirms to PEOPLE that ABC News has been talking to the former New York Giants defensive end, 42, for months.

Strahan, speaking to his Live! co-host Kelly Ripa on the air Wednesday, said the news about his joining the top-rated morning show – which he said he found out when he checked his text messages after a screening Tuesday night – was "surprising."

So, pressed Ripa, are you going?

"If I read the papers, I am," he said. "But this is my home," he added, assuring her that when the GMA gig kicks in, he will still costar with her on the 9 a.m. show.
