Tonight, David Letterman will host his last episode of The Late Show With David Letterman ever. It might not be a program that's in your DVR rotation. Perhaps you think of Letterman as someone your dad watches. He's been on the air hosting a late-night talk show for 33 years, after all. Regardless, you've probably seen the tributes to Letterman pouring in during the weeks leading up to his final show. The man is a comedy legend, and his signature brand of weird, wacky, man-on-the-street, stupid-pet-tricks, top-ten-list humor will live on in late-night infamy. 

Many celebrities expressed their admiration for Letterman when they appeared on the show for the last time. Tina Fey stripped down to her Spanx and literally gave Letterman the dress off her back. Bill Murray, who had been Letterman's first guest on his former NBC show, was also his last guest on CBS. He popped out of a cake on last night's show. Julia Roberts admitted that she'd been scared to appear on the show when she was invited for the first time but has since warmed to the late-night icon.

Letterman didn't have time to interview the countless celebrities he'd undoutbedly influenced during his storied career, so they're taking to social media to express their gratitude and admiration for the host. Here are just a few missives to David Letterman that'll make your heart go all mushy as he signs off forever.
