Each late night host has paid tribute to the semi-retiring Letterman in their own way. Fallon did his. Seth Meyers did his tribute. Jimmy Kimmel did his earlier this week and actually ran a rerun so people would go watch Letterman’s last appearance.
Conan paid tribute to Letterman last night by telling his viewers he wanted them to change the channel to watch the Letterman finale. It’s one thing to pay tribute with a planned piece or run a rerun but to COMMAND people change the channel, that rarely happens on national TV.
Well played, Coco.
