When David Letterman announced his retirement on the Late Show last week, many celebrities and media personalities took to Twitter to pay tribute to Letterman’s time on late night TV:
Cheers to @Letterman. A king, a king-maker, and probably the man most to blame for inflicting me on America. See you soon.

David @Letterman announced he's retiring in 2015. It's been 31 incredible years. Television won't be the same without you, Dave.
