Larry King Closes Curtain on 'Larry King Live'


In 2008, King launched an exploration into territory he never knew: Roscoe's House of Chicken and Waffles, where he dined on, yes, chicken and waffles with the hip-hop impresario. While King ordered an Arnold Palmer -- a blend of lemonade and iced tea -- Snoop (real name: Cordozar Calvin Broadus) concocted a new beverage -- The Tiger Woods, or lemonade and water. (Surely The Tiger Woods would consist of something slightly less innocuous now.) In March, the duo reunited to bounce down the block in Snoop's "low to the floor" 1967 Pontiac Parisienne.

Jerry Seinfeld, 2007.

King's celebrity interviews aren't always all fun and games. In 2007, Jerry Seinfeld showed a rare serious side when he blasted the newsman for asking if NBC canceled his hit '90s sitcom, "Seinfeld."

"You think I got canceled?" he barked. "Are you under the impression that I got canceled? I thought that was pretty well documented. Is this still CNN?" Seinfeld went on, "It was the No. 1 show on television, Larry. Do you know who I am?" King shot back, "Jewish guy, Brooklyn," proving at least a base level of knowledge about one of the most successful comedians of all time.

Liza Minnelli, 2010.

Sometimes the most entertaining moments of King's celebrity interviews come without prompting, as if the stars just couldn't help themselves. That seemed to be what happened when screen and stage legend Liza Minnelli burst into song on "Larry King Live" in October, contorting her face as she serenaded the newsman, ushering him off the airwaves (drumroll, please) on a high note.
