Bill Murray Dressed Up Like Liberace And Sang 'I Will Always Love You' To David Letterman

I want him to be my dad. Or husband. Bill Murray has managed to live his entire professional life virtually unimpeached by the masses. Everything he does is terrific, charming, and hilarious. How does he do that while keeping his acting game high? Genetic awesomeness. Only solution. Why did he get all dolled up and sing to David Letterman? Because he's Bill Murray and he can.

Jimmy Kimmel Choked Up A Little Praising David Letterman

You can't fake having a "L8 Nite" license plate on your first car. While all talk show hosts have a debt of gratitude and respect to David Letterman, none have exhibited the outward fandom that Jimmy Kimmel has for the late night mainstay. And while tonight Kimmel is airing a rerun out of respect for Letterman's last show, last night he sang the man's praises. And it was pretty damn heartwarming. You'll find in this video that Kimmel's words are way more than just diplomacy. Pretty cool sendoff to a worthy recipient.


Jim Carrey Tested David Letterman For Ebola; Letterman Comes Up Negative

His methods seem sound. Jim Carrey has been known for his over-the-top persona since he broke into Hollywood. Even after a decade of bizarre, and often unpopular movie choices, he still seems to have kept the mania well into his Dumb and Dumber To press tour. Last night, he stopped in NYC to grace David Letterman with his presence. And as long as Carrey was within arm's reach of the host, he figured he would give him a quick Ebola test. What a trooper. It looks like David Letterman is negative, but that doesn't mean he's going to be keeping up his hosting gig any longer than planned. Maybe if we gave him some stem cells... (People)


David Letterman Gives Craig Ferguson A Half-Assed Send-Off

He reads a middling goodbye from cue cards. With news that Craig Ferguson was retiring at year's end, most would think that David Letterman would be a little gracious and emotional regarding the news, seeing as how Letterman is his lead in and serves as the head of the production studio of Ferguson's show. Nope. David Letterman read from a cue card like he was reading that a woman in Missouri drove her tractor to work in a hailstorm or something. The whole video is pretty odd, but Letterman is pretty odd as well, so perhaps it's to be expected. You'd think that Letterman, a man whose cycnicism is punctuated by moments of sincerity, would be able to at least make eye contact to the camera at some point, but no. Anyway, we'll give you a marginally better send-off here, Craig: For ten years, you were a refreshing, sincere, and charming presence in the late night landscape. Go doing something more interesting now.


Enjoy The Awkwardness With This Compilation Of Letterman's Weirdest Guests

Watching him was more fun than watching the guests. Perhaps what made Letterman stand out amongst the sea of other talk show hosts was that he didn't suffer fools gladly. If someone was being weird or difficult, David Letterman would push and poke at them, rather than serve as their doormat. Sometimes it was too much for viewers to bear so close to bedtime, but sometimes it just made for captivating television. We knew that if anyone was going to serve as a stand-in for the viewer to push back against indulgent celebrities, it would be Dave. So here's a montage of his weirdest guests. As fun as the guests are to watch and mock, it's just as fun to watch David Letterman push back with that "What in the hell...?" look on his face. Here it is: (A.V. Club)


Stern Calls Leno "Horrible" On 'Letterman', Leno Cries Himself To Sleep

Stern also thinks that during last year's Superbowl commercial, Letterman should have "finish[ed] him off" when he had the chance. I'd watch that this year. Conan O'Brien has a new show. Jay Leno got his old job back, albeit in the most snakish way imaginable. David Letterman has probably dropped something crazy off a rooftop recently. Yes, more than a year later, everybody's moved on from the late night wars, except for shock jock Howard Stern. Of course, Stern was never a part of the wars to begin with, but like the kid who tells his friend to fight a bully because his DS broke and he's bored, Stern was on "Letterman" recently, goading him to retake the late night ratings crown from Mister Evilchin. In the clip above, Stern says Leno is "horrible" and "talentless," and Letterman only laughed in response. We used Google Translator to convert Nervous Laughter into English, and Letterman's response was, "duh, but I'm gonna keep my mouth shut, cause I don't want to get uncomfortable looks from Rickey Minor at parties." Stern also thinks that during last year's Superbowl commercial, Letterman should have "finish[ed] him off" when he had the chance. I'd watch that this year. Of course, we've already seen the results of a full on Leno / Letterman battle, and it ain't pretty for either host. (CBS News)


Eddie Vedder Ditches Pearl Jam To Sing 'Better Man' On The Second-To-Last Letterman Show

I would have liked to see him sing 'Jeremy' as an ode to Letterman, but that's a little inappropriate, isn't it? While David Letterman may be considered the old guard among talk show hosts today, he's got a definitively rock and roll leaning when it comes to music. So it's no surprise that in his last days as host of Late Show, Letterman is bringing the rock one last time. Last week, we had Ryan Adams, and last night, we had Eddie Vedder, sans Pearl Jam, singing a particularly emotional rendition of Better Man with the Late Show band backing him up. Here's the clip: Not bad, Eddie. Let's see if Bob Dylan can out pace him tonight.


Bill Murray Knocked Out A 45-Minute Karaoke Set, And We've Got The Video

It's about Bill Murray, so it's automatically newsworthy. Bill Murray, remembering that he's Bill Murray, and hasn't done anything awesome in a couple days, got up at his Caddyshack restaurant and belted out songs for about 45 minutes, including the Animals "House of the Rising Sun." That sounds like a lot of fun and something I would like to see, even if it meant having to go to a place called the Caddyshack Restaurant. Fortunately, TMZ's reach knows no bounds, so they got some crappy video, which works out better for everyone.


You Can Finally Watch Bill Murray's Strangest Performance In 'Nothing Lasts Forever'

Not as strange as his public persona though. For thirty years, there have been whispers about Nothing Lasts Forever, the long lost 1980's comedy starring Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray that has sat in a vault. Up until now. Directed by SNL's short film director Tom Schiller, the movie features Gremlins star Zach Galligan as a young man struggling to survive in a totalitarian retro/future New York City. MGM originally shelved the film after a test audience response of "Whaddafuh?" But that's the charm of this unique film that has amassed a cult following and has to be seen to be believed. You can watch it now on YouTube. But I wouldn't wait too long because nothing lasts forever. Especially YouTube uploads that breach copyright claims.
