We don’t yet have a clear sense of what The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will look like, and while we’ve heard a few big names suggested prior, our future Daily Show almost looked very different. Not only did the inimitable Amy Poehler (briefly) consider an offer to host, but so too did Chris Rock apparently mull over taking the chair for a time.

Stephen Colbert has begun rolling out his Late Show tenure slowly as leadup to the September 8 premiere, but on a week where eternal punchline Donald Trump at last announces an official bid for the presidency, any late-night host worth their salt would hit the gas.

Difficult though saying goodbye to David Letterman’s Late Show proved, Stephen Colbert has slowly started to win us over in promotion of his own late-night future. That said, CBS may have nuked the ground from orbit, taking down every single Letterman clip from YouTube and its website, so what gives?

There were no scheduled guests on the final episode of The Late Show With David Letterman (minus The Foo Fighters, who closed out the night with a performance of “Everlong”), but that didn’t mean that a few of Letterman’s old friends didn’t stop by to say goodbye one last time. Some of the funniest people alive all came together to present one final Top Ten list, Things I've Always Wanted to Say To Dave.

T-minus one week and counting until the very last Late Show with David Letterman and the tributes are coming faster and faster, and sadder and sadder. I hope on the last installment of Stupid Pet Tricks one of the tricks is a shih tzu shedding a single tear for the end of this venerable late-night franchise, which comes to a close on May 20.
