FOX's long-running animated series THE SIMPSONS paid homage to host David Letterman who just last week announced he would be retiring from his late night gig.

Last night's episode kicked off with the show's latest couch gag, featuring Homer and his family showing up at New York's Ed Sullivan theatre, the home of CBS's Late Show. As Letterman waits for the arrival of his guest, he becomes miffed as the Simpsons grab a spot on the Late Show couch. "I think we're done here," growls an animated Letterman who goes on to request that his house band play the show's theme song.

The bit ends with the on-screen sentiment: "We'll miss you, Dave." Check it out below!

About THE SIMPSONS

THE SIMPSONS continues to strike a chord with viewers for irreverently poking fun at anything and everything. As the longest-running scripted series in television history, which Entertainment Weekly called the "No. 1 Greatest American Sitcom." THE SIMPSONS has become one of the most consistently groundbreaking, innovative and recognizable entertainment franchises throughout the world. With its subversive humor and delightful wit, the series has made an indelible imprint on American pop culture, and the family members, HOMER, MARGE, BART, LISA and MAGGIE, are television icons.

The Simpsons reside in the town of Springfield. HOMER (Dan Castellaneta) works as a safety inspector at the local nuclear power plant; MARGE (Julie Kavner) tries to keep the peace in her family; BART (Nancy Cartwright) is the mischievous 10-year-old hellion; eight-year-old LISA (Yeardley Smith) is the intelligent, saxophone-playing, vegetarian member of the family; and baby MAGGIE conveys emotions via pacifier sucks.

The critically praised series has been bestowed with numerous honors, including a Peabody Award, 28 Emmy Awards, 29 Annie Awards, five Genesis Awards and seven Environmental Media Awards. THE SIMPSONS has been the subject of a hit feature film; created the Simpsons Ride at Universal Studios; received a Star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame; was honored with five U.S. postal stamps personally designed by Matt Groening; was named the "Best Show of the 20th Century" by Time magazine; and, most recently, won Vulture.com's Sitcom Smackdown, earning the title "The Best Sitcom of the Past 30 Years."
