You probably had no idea just how much Jimmy Kimmel loves David Letterman.
On "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" Tuesday night, Jimmy gave David Letterman an emotional late-night send-off, choking up at times as he recalled childhood memories of obsessively watching and idolizing the man. He credits Letterman for helping him land his own late-night show on ABC, saying that executives saw him on Letterman's show and tapped him for the late-night host job.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live!" will actually be a rerun Wednesday night, because Jimmy insists that everyone watch David Letterman's final show. When a television network wants you to ignore their programming and watch something important on another channel -- that means something.
The final "Late Show With David Letterman" airs Wednesday at 11:35PM EST on CBS.
