Jimmy Kimmel Gives Tearful Goodbye to David Letterman (Video)

Jimmy Kimmel took a moment to talk about his idol David Letterman ahead of his final show during Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night (May 19) in Hollywood.

The 47-year-old late-night host started to tear up as he talked about what The Late Show With David Letterman meant to him. Watch below!

“I watched the show every night and never missed it, and little did I know that many years and many pounds later, that watching the show was a great education for me,” Jimmy said. “I learned almost nothing in college. I really didn’t. But watching Late Night, not only did I learn how to do everything from Dave, the reason I have this show is because the executives at ABC saw me when I was a guest on Dave‘s show and hired me to host this show. I want to thank Dave and his writers and his producers.”

Other TV hosts, including Seth Meyers and Ellen DeGeneres, also shared their thoughts. Click inside to see those!

The final Late Show With David Letterman airs tonight at 11:35pm on CBS. Jimmy is purposely airing a rerun of his own show so people tune in to Dave‘s final episode.
