    David Letterman is certainly enchanted by Taylor Swift‘s relationship with a particular football player… or Frasier star?! According to The Daily Mail, the late night legend shared his support for the pop star and Travis Kelce‘s high-profile relationship on Instagram, but he didn’t quite get it right. “Taylor Swift — I don’t think in the history of show business, in the history of pop culture, we’ve ever witnessed anything like this,” he explained, deeming her work “tremendous.” While highlighting that Swift “fills stadiums around the world [and] puts on a three-hour show,” he proceeded to argue that “we live in...

    Despite attempts by David Letterman to get her to bash President Donald Trump, Kim Kardashian reportedly declined to do so and instead expressed gratitude for the administration’s implementation of criminal justice sentencing reform. Trump foe Letterman interviewed Kardashian, the spouse of presidential candidate Kanye West, on a wide range of topics in the first episode of his Netflix show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, which drops on October 21. The content of the show generally consists of liberal Letterman pandering to the egos of various celebrities. Kardashian famously met with Trump in the White House Oval Office in May...

    Kanye West claimed liberals bully supporters of Donald Trump after being challenged on his political views by David Letterman on the comedian’s Netflix series. West appeared in the new batch of episodes for Letterman’s interview series “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction,” where the duo sat down for an in-depth discussion on everything from fashion to music and politics. West has been an outspoken supporter of the president, even publicly wearing a “Make America Great Again” hat on “Saturday Night Live” and visiting the Oval Office last year. According to The Daily Beast, West was the first to bring up...

    “Oh god, I’m scared,” David Letterman says. He’s pacing backstage before his interview with Kanye West for the first episode of his Netflix show’s second season. The first season of My Next Guest Needs No Introduction kicked off with President Barack Obama, but Letterman seems genuinely more nervous about sitting down with Kanye. The hour-long conversation that follows—this episode along with four others all start streaming next Friday, May 31—is not only one of the best interviews Letterman has ever conducted, it’s also one of the most coherent and engaging interviews Kanye has ever given, even if it does go...

    Trump's first appearance was in a remote that aired October 1, 1986: Dave paid a quick visit to his office at Trump Tower. (This was referenced in the next clip.) Trump's first guest appearance on Late Night was taped fourteen months later on December 2, 1987, and aired on December 22. He came on to promote his book he didn't write, _Art of the Deal_. It being the run-up to the 1988 campaign, Dave asked if he were interested in running for the presidency. The story behind his feud with NYC mayor Ed Koch was uploaded here: Jimmy "The...

Early in the episode, Obama asked Letterman about his retirement but the veteran talk show host quickly let the former president know who was boss. “Now here’s how this is gonna work. I’m gonna ask you stuff, and then you respond to...

    “I thought, if this was somebody else — if this was a member of your family or a next-door neighbor, a guy at work — you would immediately distance yourself from that person,” Letterman told the Times. “And that’s what I thought would happen. Because if you can do that in a national forum, that says to me that you are a damaged human being. If you can do that, and not apologize, you’re a person to be shunned.” Letterman also blamed the media’s influence for Trump’s victory in the Republican primaries.

    Less than two months after he left CBS' The Late Show, Letterman appeared onstage in San Antonio, Texas, Friday with Steve Martin and Martin Short, who are touring with their stage show, A Very Stupid Conversation…With Music. "Back in Hollywood, we met at a Scientology mixer," Letterman, 68, told the crowd, "and they have been so kind and so generous to invite me here to this beautiful city." "I am so happy to be out of the house," a bearded Letterman admitted. "I retired and I had no regrets—none. I was happy. I was complacent. I was satisfied. I was...

  • After Losing to Jay Leno, David Letterman’s Bitterness Cost Him His Indiana Soul

    Johnny Carson’s retirement truly was the end of an era. Jay Leno’s retirement felt like the end of an era. David Letterman’s retirement feels like the end of an argument that probably mattered once upon a time but now drags ceaselessly on due only to the bitter loser’s unwillingness to let go. It is not hard to trace the long, sad, bitter fall of David Letterman. In early 1992, Letterman lost “The Tonight Show” to Jay Leno. Letterman believed Johnny’s chair was rightfully his (it was), that he was Carson’s heir apparent (he was), and that he had more to...

    CBS wasted no time in kicking David Letterman to the curb. ​Just hours after Letterman said farewell after 33 years on late-night TV, Ed Sullivan Theater crews hauled off blocks of blue stage and hacked up pieces of the iconic New York City bridges that made up the set of the “Late Show​.” Fans and passers-by gathered around a police barricade cordoning off the Ed Sullivan to watch workers unceremoniously chuck red theater chairs into an overflowing Dumpster and ​take reciprocating saws to his miniature Brooklyn Bridge.

    Pundit Press ^ | 5/21/15 | Aurelius is happy to see David Letterman go. Not because they think he was unfunny, but because he had too many white people on his show, particularly in its final days. In an article titled, "The unbearable whiteness of the Letterman farewells: Let this truly be the end of a show-business era," Salon took Letterman to task for inviting white actors and actresses on his final shows, but few minorities. "You'd never know" that American culture has a large minority presence, Salon author Scott Timberg writes. Referencing the last few shows before Letterman left the air, Timberg writes, "Some of...
