Millions of viewers had an opportunity to hear David Letterman saying his final ‘goodbye’ to The Late Show, which appears to be the most remarkable show in his career.

On Wednesday evening, the famous TV host managed to gather about 13.8 million viewers in front of their TV’s to watch The Late Show.

The last time when a 68-year-old Letterman managed to attract so many viewers was in February 1994. It happened because his show was broadcasted right after the Winter Olympic Games reportage of CBS.

In 1982 David Letterman began his hosting career on NBC. Later, in 1993, he moved to CBC, where he hosted the Late Show.

The last show, given by Letterman, started with 2-minute applause and lasted for 17 minutes. Stars like Steve Martin, Chris Rock, Peyton Manning, Tina Fey, Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Carrey joined him.

During the show, after many words of tribute from celebs, Letterman jokingly said:

Do me a favour. Save a little for my funeral

The star also thanked all his viewers for everything they had given him.

The rise of viewers could be seen for The Late Late Show, hosted by James Corden. About 4 million of people watched it and it became Corden’s highest rating for two month of his work as a host.

Although, the night was totally dedicated to Letterman, it couldn’t repeat the success of Jay Leno, whose final farewell draw in about 14.6 million viewers in 2014.
