David Letterman, Craig Ferguson and other late night stars say goodbye to Diane Sawyer

Signing off after over a decade on the popular AM show, Diane Sawyer said goodbye today to "Good Morning America." Offering their best wishes were five late night TV hosts: David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon (who invited Diane over for "Scattergories and Sambuca at my house"), Stephen Colbert and Craig Ferguson. Watch the segment here.

Sawyer is leaving "GMA" to replace Charles Gibson as the anchor of ABC's "World News." She'll begin her new early-evening gig on Dec. 21. George Stephanopoulos will replace Sawyer starting Monday on "GMA."

    Very funny. Specially Kimmels message.

    The link you provided was for a video of other celebrities wishing her well tho, not the late night hosts. The hosts video was in the same page, just a click away however, so its alright. I watched both.

    I think I've fixed the link. That f&$#ing Embrel commercial they play before you can watch the video drives me bananas, so I definitely want to prevent my readers from having to see that more than once.

    Oh you are damn right about that. A ONE MINUTE long commercial before each video is a total torture tactic. That said, I like Enbrel because someone in my family takes it and it seems to help. hahaha. But still! jeez.

    I just turned down the volume and switched tabs on my browser until it was done tho, so it wasnt too painful.

    Conan O'Brien did a little something on The Tonight Show. IIRC, he said he failed to be a part of this tribute because someone in his office forgot to put it on his schedule, or something. He sang a song for her while playing guitar (accompanied by The Tonight Show Band).
