The actress captioned the photo saying, “You sir, are a true gentleman.” For Tom Arnold, the end of “The Late Show” hit very close to him. The actor tweeted, “Did Letterman over 30 times. Let me fill in as host twice.” He continued, “Grateful and sad but his exist is perfect like everything else these last 33 years.” Josh Groban tweeted, “My brother and I would stay up late to watch Letterman every night.” The singer added, “Singing songs (and the top 10!) on his show was an honor. Thanks Dave!!”

You set me up perfectly, every time!” Ricki Lake posted a video of herself on “The Late Show” in 1990, saying, “In honor of #davidletterman’s retirement.” Jon Cryer shared a video as well, of his appearance on “The Late Show” in 2011. The actor wrote, “Thanks #DavidLetterman… It was an honor to share the stage with you.” Sean Hayes tweeted, “Thank you to my hero, @Letterman. Late night will never be the same.” And with a video posted to Facebook of his 2001 guest appearance, Hayes wrote, “Thanks for being so kind & generous to me over the years.” Noting the video, he added, “Like a great host does, knowing it was my first time, thank you for being slow & gentle. I’ll call you later. xo”
