Tomorrow night, David Letterman will officially retire from late-night TV. And already, the late-night new school is singing his swan song. Jimmy Kimmel previously announced that he wouldn’t dare compete with Letterman’s final show, instead airing a rerun of his show Wednesday night. And on Monday night’s The Tonight Show, Jimmy Fallon took a few minutes to honor Letterman. In his brief tribute, Fallon revealed that one of his eighth-grade teachers predicted that one day Fallon would replace Letterman on The Late Show. That teacher obviously hadn’t met Stephen Colbert, but cool story!
Elsewhere on The Late Show, Eddie Vedder stopped by to perform “Better Man” for Letterman. Things got emotional, obviously.
