A voice we’ve dearly missed is finally coming back to late night. David Letterman has officially booked his Netflix debut with new series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction; setting a monthly schedule with guests like George Clooney and Barack Obama. Watch the first teaser!
Like so many famous Davids, you’d never know if Letterman was content to enjoy retirement, or stage an unexpected comeback. The revered interviewer and former Late Show host is officially making a return to our lives, leading – what else – a new Netflix series doing what he does best.
Bill Cosby was a guest host for David Letterman in 2003 when he interviewed then newcomer Sofia Vergara. Back then people thought Bill was just being funny. Knowing now what we do, it's hard to see this as anything but incredibly creepy. Watch her body language.
This week David Letterman signed off as most of us wished he would continue to be a late night mainstay. For my Country Throwback this week, I started thinking of country artists he's had on over the years and one obscure episode has always stuck with me.
There were no scheduled guests on the final episode of The Late Show With David Letterman (minus The Foo Fighters, who closed out the night with a performance of “Everlong”), but that didn’t mean that a few of Letterman’s old friends didn’t stop by to say goodbye one last time. Some of the funniest people alive all came together to present one final Top Ten list, Things I've Always Wanted to Say To Dave.
If you weren't able to stay up late enough last night for Letterman, then you missed some pretty good jokes from David. It was a funny, and bittersweet final monologue from the legend. He starts it off with a great joke about the Tonight Show, too.
I loved David Letterman's final show. Just the right amount of highlights, a great celebrity-filled final Top Ten list, a heartfelt thank you speech, and then Foo Fighters.
The big question is what David is going to do now that he's retired. His old friend Steve Martin recently decided to make a video to show us.
Talking with different people about the end of the David Letterman era on the Late Show, I realized, there are many different Davids that people remember. He doesn't do as many stunts now as he once did, so why is he still admired, I know.
Tonight is the night, the last time David Letterman will sit behind the desk on late night TV. I am really going to miss him. He was someone I grew up watching and someone who did things years ago that nobody at the time was doing. Now, everyone does the stunts and skits, but it was David Letterman who paved the path for the likes of Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel, Conan O'Brien, etc.
People are making their last appearances on David Letterman's Late Show on CBS and paying their respect to him and Paul and the band. Some are wishing him well, some are telling their favorite stories. Ray Romano stopped by to give him a little touch of It's a Wonderful Life.
