Remembering David Letterman's powerful 9/11 monologue

A bracing, necessary moment of sincerity from late night's master of irony

Tonight is David Letterman's final "Late Show." Although, as with his mentor Johnny Carson, last night's penultimate show was the real last one, with the return of Bill Murray and a musical performance by Bob Dylan, while tonight's will be largely clips and remembrances by Dave and Paul Shaffer.

'Mad Men': Joan's glasses, Harry's cookie, and more series finale odds & ends

Still lots to discuss from 'Person to Person'

Due to both lack of sleep from reviewing the finale, and the sheer weight of the show being over, it's been hard for me to think about anything but "Mad Men" today.

Talkback: 'Game of Thrones' - 'Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken'

What did everybody think of tonight's episode?

Last week's "Game of Thrones" aired while I was away on vacation, and our Richard Rushfield pinch-hit on reviewing it. Tonight, I'm preoccupied with the end of "Mad Men" — it's entirely possible I may not have even watched "Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken" at the time you're reading this — but we're doing something different this week. Richard will again review this week's "Game," but elsewhere on the site. For those of you who just want to talk about the episode, go for it right here. There's a chance I may write a belated review of this one at some point in the week, but I suspect I may be inclined to just jump ahead to episode 7 next Sunday.

'Brooklyn Nine-Nine' co-creator on Holt's promotion, Jake and Amy's slow-burn romance & more

'Andre Braugher IS NOT LEAVING THE SHOW!!!!' Dan Goor promises

"Brooklyn Nine-Nine" just wrapped up its strong second season with its best episode of the year, dealing with Jake and Amy's awkward attraction for each other, Captain Holt trying to avoid being promoted out of the Nine-Nine by Chief Wuntch, and Boyle helping Diaz on her birthday. Rather than do a review, I reached out to "Brooklyn" co-creator and showrunner Dan Goor with some emailed questions about both the events of the finale and season 2 as a whole, coming up just as soon as I Don Johnson it...
