I know some of you must be tired of all this Dave Letterman business and I believe the man himself might be tired of it too but I’ll leave you with one more accolade about him. The above clip comes from Conan O’Brien, during his monologue. Conan’s show starts about 30 minutes before Dave’s and he is nice enough to implore people to switch over to Dave’s last show once it starts.
Conan took over Dave’s show in 1993, when he left for CBS. He had some massive shoes to fill and for a while, it wasn’t looking so good. I’ll leave it to Conan to describe how Dave helped him out.
