David Letterman’s Last ‘Late Show’ To Run Very Long Tonight

Justin Burnell:

I don’t remember how do I started watching Last Show with David Letterman but I’m sure gonna miss that show.

Originally posted on Deadline:

As expected, David Letterman’s celebrity-studded final night hosting Late Show ran long. Very LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMANlong. Instead of the usual nip-and-tucking a network would do on a show that runs long, so as to keep programs running on-schedule-ish, CBS has made the call to let the show run long. Very long. Like pushing 17 minutes long-ish. Because, in round numbers, the network decided nobody who’s wrapping up a groundbreaking and record-setting 33-year career like Letterman’s should should have to worry on his last broadcast about coming in on time.

“There’s more to life than work.” –Stan Rizzo

Is there? The entire finale of Mad Men seemed to be making that point, or at least, it found the series’ central characters wrestling with the issue. Peggy Olson found love at work–no mortal can resist Stan’s suede and turquoise for long–while also finding a calling there. Joan found that her work cost her a relationship, as Richard’s supportive talk turned out to be all talk–yet when we last saw her, she seemed to have managed to integrate her work with her life. Even Roger Sterling ends his story out of the office, ordering champagne happily with Marie.

And then of course there was Don, whose hobo journey led him at the end away from the office, by way of the Bonneville Salt Flats, to a meditation center in California, where, stripped of…

Scandal Finale Recap: Cleaning House — Who Lost the Most? And Who Won?

Justin Burnell:

I’m impressed with ending of the Scandal finale. Joe Morton was a hateful dad to Olivia Pope. Great finale.

Originally posted on TVLine:

“It’s everybody against each other,” big bad Scandal dad Joe Morton warned us of Thursday’s Season 4 finale — and indeed it was.

So once the dust settled, who emerged victorious, and who sustained devastating blows?
