Jimmy Kimmel Gives Tearful Farewell to David Letterman [VIDEO]
Tonight marks the end of an era in television as David Letterman prepares for his final Late Show telecast. Since his first episode aired on NBC in 1982, Letterman has been a TV icon for his quick wit, dry humor, and hilarious stunts. Eleven years later, he moved to CBS and The Ed Sullivan Theater where he has been ever since. ABC Late Night King Jimmy Kimmel has been a huge Letterman fan since his teenage years, and he delivered an emotional farewell to Dave on his show last night. Jimmy Kimmel Live will be a rerun tonight, and he has already told his audience not to watch it and instead, watch Letterman's final Late Night show.
Ironically, Bill Murray was a guest on David Letterman's NBC and CBS television debuts and he appeared last night on Dave's next to last Late Show broadcast to look back on all of his guest appearances.
There have been very few details regarding Letterman's final Late Show, but we do know that the Foo Fighters will be performing. USA Today's For the Win offers their Top Ten ways that Dave will end his legendary late night run.
