This week’s top 5 viral TV clips on 5by are all about David Letterman. The last show ever for the legendary late night host aired this week, and with it came some heartwarming and hilarious TV clips.

Both Conan and Jimmy Kimmel gave extremely sincere and inspiring farewell speeches in ode to Dave. It’s nice to see another side to these guys, and their monologues are truly worth watching.

Dave’s final ‘Thank You and Good Night’ is another heart felt monologue worth checking out. After 33 long years, this might be his best one yet.

The Foo Fighters played during Dave’s finale. Instead of being the focus, they were essentially the sound track to a slideshow of all the best moments Dave and his guests shared together. Solid performance by Dave Grohl in memory of an unparalleled late night masterpiece.

Finally, Dave’s final Top 10 consisted of ten big-time celebrities saying something they’ve always wanted to share with Dave, and I’ve got to say that Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Jerry Seinfeld and Jim Carrey all made me laugh out loud.

Farewell, Dave!
