    Anyone watching?

    I haven't watched Letterman in ages, but I can never resist when Stern is on.

    Ray Romano was pretty hilarious as well.

    I finally went to sit in the live audience a few weeks ago when Michael J. Fox was on for his final appearance. It was very cool.

    Didn't see the show, but this appears to be a clip from it. Correct?

    Yep. That's the one. I hadn't realized he had been on the show so many times. The end of his segment was a particularly nice moment.

    Stern's line about not wanting to go to dinner with Rickles because he already heard all of the Sinatra stories was great.

    Tina Fey's appearance was quite revealing.

    Bill Scheft has turned his tumblr page into a fun little commentary on the final shows. I found it the day after I was at the show with Billy Crystal.

    So as you watch them roll out at end end, is there anyone you think will be missing?

    The only one I've worried about is Richard Simmons. I don't think he's going to make it, and it's sad because he and Dave had great chemistry.

    Haven't heard that name since his awful stint in SI. People were saying back then that he really was funny, but boy did it not come out on paper.

    I thought the same thing.

    The best Letterman guests are the ones who make him squirm, which is not easy to do. Stern is best at this. Julia Roberts is right there as well.

    His final guest is still a mystery, right? I know people are expecting a Leno appearance, but it would be kind of nice to have Bill Murray do it since he was the first guest on Dave's NBC and CBS shows.

    How's Teri Garr doing these days?
