| Filed under: TV NewsJim CarreyOprah WinfreyChris RockDavid LettermanJerry SeinfeldBusiness BlitzLate Night TV

David Letterman won the ratings battle on his final night on CBS!

David Letterman's final show on Wednesday night brought in his biggest ratings since 1994!

That's a major coup in the late night wars for CBS as they said goodbye to the funny man's 33-year late night career.

In fact, the Late Show with David Letterman registered a 4.1 rating in the coveted age 25-54 demographic, and in the 18-49 demographic Letterman logged a 3.1 rating.

What's all that mean? Really simply put: those ratings are his best single night performance since Oprah joined him on stage at the Ed Sullivan Theater on December 1, 2005.

You've heard of unruly customers, but how about unruly servers?

Ruby Chen found herself on the receiving end of a trenta-sized tirade last week at a Starbucks in Queens, New York. While she was pulling up her Starbucks app to pay for the frappuccino and edible straw, Ruby failed to hear the worker call her name. That apparently infuriated the worker.
