David Letterman to Retiring Jay Leno: “Congratulations on a Wonderful Run!”

Posted Friday February 7, 2014 11:25 AM GMT

The competition between late night television shows has always been fierce, however David Letterman couldn’t help but show some love and respect to Jay Leno as he made his last appearance as host of “The Tonight Show.”

The “Late Show” host began, “Well, as with the world, tonight is a big night for change in late night television. Our friend Jay Leno [has spent] 22 years as host of ‘The Tonight Show.’”

“Twenty-two years. That’s remarkable isn’t it? Twenty-two years and tonight will be his last program. He began in 1992 on ‘The Tonight Show’ and February 17th Jimmy Fallon, our little buddy Jimmy Fallon, will be replacing Jay.”

Letterman further declared, “Congratulations on a wonderful run. I’ll tell you something- if I was Jay Leno and I was retiring do you know what I would do? I’d go out and buy myself a car!”
