David Letterman’s New Netflix Show Premieres This Week

This week David Letterman’s new Netflix Original show will premiere on January 12 with President Barack Obama as his first guest.

The “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” show will feature David Letterman and one guest in interviews that take place both inside and outside a studio setting. The show will include segments outside the interview and field segments featuring David Letterman.

“Just meeting David Letterman was a thrill; imagine how exciting it is for me to announce that we will be working together,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer, Netflix. “David Letterman is a true television icon, and I can’t wait to see him out in the wild, out from behind the desk and interviewing the people he finds most interesting. We’ll have to see if he keeps the beard.”

    This would have been news when Dave was a comedian. Now that he has chosen the path of political pundit, who cares?

        I didn’t bring the politics, Dave did. You may want to educate yourself before commenting.

          Just because he interviews a former president, doesn’t mean it’s political. Did you bother reading the who the other guests are or can’t you read?

    Dave has lost his mind, it’s now a liberal sink-hole.

    Man…this has become a troll cave. Lots of posters taking time to click the article and post how much they dislike Letterman.
