Tina Fey Totally Owned Letterman's Final Top 10 List

If you thought Tina Fey's Spanx-laden tribute to David Letterman would be her last moment of glory on the Late Show, think again. Fey had one final zinger for Letterman, and she got the opportunity to use it as one of the 10 legends who appeared on his final show. The theme of Letterman's last Top 10 list ever was, "Things I've Always Wanted to Say to Dave." Everyone from Alec Baldwin to Barbara Walters was there to take one last sarcastic dig at Dave. While Letterman may have seemed most excited to see Peyton Manning, we were all about Tina Fey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus' entry on the list.

Jerry Seinfeld presented the seventh reason with the cheeky arrogance; it seems he'll display for the rest of his life as the creator and star of one of the greatest sitcoms ever. "I have no idea what I'll do when you go off the air...you know, I just thought of something — I'll be fine," Seinfeld joked.

Never fear — Julia Louis-Dreyfus was there to knock Seinfeld down a bit. "Thanks for letting me take part in another hugely disappointing series finale," she matter-of-factly stated. The audience erupted in laughter. The camera cut to her Seinfeld co-star, who looked shocked. "Really?!" he mouthed in faux-horror. 

But, Tina Fey really stole the show. She delivered the penultimate item on the list. "Thanks for finally proving men can be funny," Fey deadpanned before doing her signature Liz Lemon backwards shoulder rolls back to the line. "I like that," Letterman laughed. 

Watch the whole Top 10 list below. We can all agree that Tina Fey totally owned this one, right?
