| Filed under: TV NewsDavid LettermanLate Night TVSeth Meyers

With Late Show and Late Night legend David Letterman’s news that he’ll be retiring next year, TV hosts everywhere are reflecting on how influential he’s been in their own careers.

Seth Meyers, who now helms the very same NBC show that made Letterman famous more than 30 years ago, took a moment last night to tell his audience just how significant Dave’s departure will be for him.

“I grew up on David Letterman. I remember we would try to memorize Top 10 Lists so that we could tell them on the bus the next day. Because before the internet you had to memorize things.”

Seth added what an honor it was to now have his name added to the Late Night franchise history, saying:

“There are a lot of things I can’t believe about the fact that I get to do this job but the thing that I truly can’t believe is the fact that Late Night, this was David Letterman’s show. And if it wasn’t for David Letterman, this show wouldn’t exist and if it wasn’t for David Letterman, I wouldn’t be here.”

A true sign of respect.
