    Browse all 537 frames of the rapid-fire 'Late Show' highlight reel at your own pace

    https://www.facebook.com/adam.nedeff/media_set?set=a.10153848803898102.1073741832.608003101&type=1

    Late Show With David Letterman wrapped up Wednesday night with a genius finale and an incredible rapid-fire highlight reel soundtracked by the Foo Fighters' "Everlong." Letterman's 33-year late-night tenure was presented in a blink-and-you'll-miss-it fashion, with many fans overlooking must-see moments while wiping away tears.


    Thankfully, one Letterman superfan on Facebook has painstakingly broken down the five-plus minute montage into 537 individual frames, with many of the photos sporting details of when and why each image was spotlighted.

    Adam Nedeff is responsible for taking that final greatest hits barrage and transforming it into a manageable Facebook slideshow, from Larry "Bud" Melman's ghoulish Late Night intro in 1982 to the fireworks exploding off the roof of the Ed Sullivan Theatre.

    So many classic Letterman moments – reduced to split-second glimpses in the montage – are given the proper treatment, like Howard Stern's cross-dressing appearance in 1995, the Late Night Monkey Cam and American Splendor creator Harvey Pekar's memorable visit. (The breakdown of the montage also confirms our suspicions that the "Will It Float?" sketch was criminally forgotten.)

    Also featured in greater detail in the slideshow: A memorial segment that featured Joan Rivers, Paul Newman, Johnny Carson, Robin Williams, Lou Reed and Warren Zevon; Letterman announcing the birth of his son Harry to the crowd; Warren Beatty shilling Big Ass Pork products and sportscaster Marv Albert dancing with a giant squirrel. Relive the montage at your own pace at Nedeff's Facebook, or rewatch it accompanied by "Everlong" below:

    I watched the finale last night on DVR, even knowing which two Howard shots were in there I barely noticed them. Good job Letterman Team on not giving the douchebag more than the briefest acknowledgement.

    I saw the part where Barbara Walters was confused as to where to go when she walked out. Bobbleheaded old idiot.

    Can't say that I noticed, I was watching and posting here too, I did pay attention to the final montage because I wanted to see if I caught the shots of Howard.

    Can't help but notice how the show changed from being the place where you saw weird and different stuff that no one else was doing to a boring, standard-issue talk show.

    "My fans love gay antics Robin, that's why I do them"

    Letterman's send off to all his staff was something you'll never see Howard do, they'll just disappear like HTV and the H100 News.

    Instead of having a retirement party he'll just happily pocket any and all of the marbles that would have went to the party budget.

    Well lets all think of the scenario this December....if Sirius/XM decides mid-December not to renew his contract, then the show is pretty much over. He will have a week and then it will just fade away. Hard to imagine a terrestrial radio station is going to give him a contract with his salary and work schedule/ethic, so he could just fade away into the sunset.....Jay and Dave get send-offs, Stern will get ass-kissing calls from Bobo and Maryanne telling him thank you for "all the years of entertainment".

    We are almost into June....those contract talks have to be going on strong as we speak. I still do not see the value Stern brings to Sirius/XM, so it will be interesting to see what happens.
