Conan Gives Thanks to David Letterman One Last Time

In honor of David Letterman’s last show, Conan O’Brien paid the retiring talk-show host yet another tribute. This one involved a solid throwback clip, as well as a very touching gesture: He encouraged viewers to switch to The Late Show, should they, for whatever reason, be watching Conan on this bittersweet night instead. “I promise you: We will not see a man of his talents and comedic integrity again in our lifetime, and you do not want to miss out,” O’Brien said, after sharing a winner of an anecdote about Letterman being a hero and him being a national punch line. “Have a great show, Dave, and from the bottom of my heart, thank you.”
