It wasn't just the stars present there who bid him farewell, though.

In the middle of his own show, Conan O'Brien told his viewers to "switch to Dave."

"Okay, now it's 11:35. Record us, but switch to Dave! Bye!"

Jimmy Kimmel also asked his audience to watch Letterman instead of his show, saying:

"I'd like it if you made sure to watch that instead of our show ... Especially if you are a young person who doesn't understand what all the fuss is about. Dave is the best and you should see him."

It is no secret that Dave will be missed!
