David Letterman leaving TV is a bigger deal than most folks understand.
He means so much to so many, but it is been truly unbelievable to see how much talk show hosts and other comedians honor him.

Well, Conan still had his show continue on as normal… except the night was quite Letterman themed.
Coco, as well as his guest Patton Oswalt, pretty much only swapped stories about Dave and how much he affected them and their careers.
Conan sprang into activity when the time arrived to walk out onto his set, one last time. He was intently observing the time and when the clock struck 11:35pm, he did something unbelievable…
He sent all his staying viewers away (which he estimated to be about 7 individuals because of the buzz around Dave’s last show) and requested them to tune to Letterman’s goodbye episode. Which is pure group.
