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.
