When NBC handed David Letterman Late Night in 1982, his offbeat humor ushered in a new era of late night.
Thirty-three years later, he's stepping down from a late-night landscape that changed around him, having stayed true to himself as the medium changed from appointment viewing to something to be easily digested the next morning in three- to four-minute clips.
"I recognized the value of it," Letterman told The New York Times back in April of his competitors' tendency to gear their shows toward digital audiences. "It's just, I didn't know what to say. You go back to your parents' house, and they still have the rotary phone. It's a little like that."

"I learned almost nothing in college, but watching Late Night, not only did I learn everything from Dave, but the reason I have this show is because," Kimmel said haltingly, his voice trembling, as he stopped to keep himself from crying. "The executives at ABC saw me when I was a guest on Dave's show and hired me to host this show. I want to thank Dave."

During his monologue at the ABC Upfronts on Tuesday, Jimmy Kimmel took aim at Bruce Jenner, one of the network's most high-profile faces following his coming out as transgender last month on 20/20.
Talking about the network's upcoming programming slate, Kimmel said that ABC "has people of color, women and men turning into women."
Referring to this year's format of The Bachelorette, the premiere of which will have both Kaitlyn Bristowe and Britt Nilsson battling it out for the chance to find love with one of 25 suitors Monday, Kimmel said: "I say forget more Bachelorettes – we need more Bruce Jenners at this network!"

Bruce Jenner said that stepdaughter Kim Kardashian West has been the "most accepting" of his transition from male to female, but it seems her generosity will only go so far.
While the former Olympian, 65, admitted in an interview with Diane Sawyer on Friday that Kardashian West is helping him become a fashionista – telling him, "You're representing the family. You gotta look really good" – she's setting boundaries.

The landscape of late night has inarguably changed since David Letterman began hosting Late Night in 1982 and then Late Show in 1993, but he's not ending his 33-year run on a bitter note.
In an interview with The New York Times, Letterman, 68, is not upset about how the format he helped create has changed so drastically with the entry of energetic, Internet-savvy hosts like Jimmy Kimmel and Jimmy Fallon.
"They didn't push me out," he said. "I'm 68. If I was 38, I'd probably still be wanting to do the show," Letterman added, going on to say that the format – "an older guy in a suit" – certainly still seemed "viable" when Jay Leno was still on late night. However, after Leno left The Tonight Show last year, Letterman was suddenly "surrounded by Jimmys," he told the Times.
