See Conan O’Brien and Will Arnett’s on-Air Tribute to Robin Williams

Conan O'Brien learned of Robin Williams's death during tonight's taping, and he closed out the show by offering a brief tribute. "We’re just processing this information literally right at this moment, and so we are thinking of Robin’s family," he said after breaking the news to his audience. "We’re thinking about everybody who he touched around the world, throughout his life. We’re thinking about Robin tonight. There’s really not much else to say." And from guest Will Arnett: “As funny as he was — he’s truly one of the all-time greats — he was even better as a person. He was even more fantastic — just the loveliest, sweetest, one of the kindest guys that I’ve ever worked with. Just such a soft, warm, emotionally sweet guy, and it’s a major, major loss for everybody.”
