This week David Letterman will retire from “The Late Show,” and fellow late night comedian Jimmy Kimmel shared some kind words during Tuesday’s (May 19) “Jimmy Kimmel Live.”

During his monologue, Kimmel explained, “I watched the show every night. I never missed it. And little did I know that many years and many pounds later, that watching that show was a great education for me. 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.”

Always a witty gentleman, Jimmy Fallon expressed his feelings regarding David Letterman's departure from “The Late Show” on Monday night (May 18).

The “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” host began by noting that Dave was retiring “after 33 years of innovation, fun and just plain weirdness, but mostly fun.”

He’s getting ready to wrap up his tenure as host of “The Late Show,” and David Letterman told the New York Times that Stephen Colbert wasn’t the first person he thought of when it came to finding his successor.

The 68-year-old comedian explained that CBS never consulted him in the matter. “Just as a courtesy, maybe somebody would say,‘You know, we’re kicking around some names. Do you have any thoughts here?' But it doesn’t bother me now. At the time, I had made the decision [to leave] and I thought, O.K., this is what comes when you make this decision. Not my show. When we sign off, we’re out of business with CBS.”
