Originally posted 05/21/2015 07:55AM

Like every younger-generation late-night TV host, Conan O'Brien is indebted to David Letterman. And O'Brien dedicated a portion of his show Wednesday night to making sure his audience knew it, personally thanking Letterman for his work in the field the pair have made their home for years.

"If you have ever liked any silly or stupid thing that I've done on TV over the 22 years, you must know that it probably never, never would have happened if it weren't for Dave," O'Brien said. "We will not see a man of his talents and comedic integrity again in our lifetimes," he added.

Originally posted 05/08/2015 12:40PM

Mad Men creator Matthew Weiner has heard all of your theories about how the series will end its seven-season run on May 17, and he stopped by Conan on Thursday to debunk two of them.

He was never seen again. Apparently, more than a few Mad Men conspiracy theorists think that Don will become D.B.
