Andy Rooney Signs Off: What Viewers Are Saying (Video)
Some fans call his "60 Minutes" sign off "classic," while others say they will "miss" him.
Andy Rooney delivered his final regular 60 Minutes segment on Sunday.
He asked fans not to bug him for an autograph if they happen to spot him having dinner, and also reflected on his 33-year-career at CBS. The anchor, 92, also spoke about buying just one typewriter in 50 years, but "six or seven" computers.
He also said he won't retire -- "writers never retire" -- and that he wished he could do the job "forever."
Here's what viewers are saying on Twitter:
I will miss Andy Rooney on 60 Minutes; his segment was the only thing that told me it was almost over so I could watch the next show

Mickey Rooney is 91. Andy Rooney is 92. I don't fear death, but "Tim Rooney" will be the name of this Twitter account after 1 more legality.
