Manning became friendly with Letterman during his days as the Colts' quarterback, as Letterman is from Indianapolis. Manning felt it was important that he honor "The Late Show" host in his final show.
Letterman, 68, is the longest-running late night talk show host in history, at 33 years. Last April, he announced that he would retire as host this May, passing the reins to Stephen Colbert.
