News & Interviews for My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman: Season 1
If this show continues to live in that gray area, it'll keep what makes it worth watching. It may not be a hit, but it'll still be a distinct pleasure to have it.
My Next Guest Needs No Introduction is pleasant, entertaining, occasionally moving, a little funny, and almost indistinguishable from a standard late-night interview, just stretched out.
TV needs the curiosity and irreverence of David Letterman, now more than ever.
But the first hour of "My Next Guest" - Letterman has planned five more monthly episodes - is a frustrating exercise in talking a lot but, ultimately, saying very little.
My Next Guest is an ingenious way for him to get back to work, with no pressure to entertain and no pretense of starting a new career. And with its ornery edge, it definitely feels like vintage Dave.
But this is clearly a way for the host to keep his hand in the game, while stripping away the less appetizing aspects of his late-night gig -- at least for him -- by letting him spend time talking to people he genuinely enjoys and admires.
The opening episode, featuring Barack Obama, was so mind-numbingly dull that I fell asleep on my living room floor in the middle.
Now Letterman is back, officially... This show is far more mature, more relaxed, and at many times more touching than his previous one.
There's no live band, no monologue, and no skits. This is a bare-bones version of the old late night series and it serves the show well.
Amid the clamor of shows competing for your attention, this is a quiet, unassuming show that is well worth listening out for.
It's not a great interview, but it's a cozy one. The conversation has the easy intimacy that can occur when two famous, successful men have reached points in their lives when they can be slightly less guarded.
Audience Reviews for My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman: Season 1
Nov 06, 2020Letterman is unmatched in his ability to get the most out of every guest.
Nov 15, 2019Both seasons are generically interesting, but these interviews could have been done by any number of people and been just as mediocre. Of course everyone changes as they get old, but that's why it's good to retire. David Letterman was interesting and had an edge. My feeling is he's become a better person and we the viewers are worse off for it. These interviews are a boring love fest and not worth watching in the least. Letterman's name gets the wide variety of very cool and intriguing people to show up, but once they do there is no show. It's annoying because one feels hopeful at the start of each interview but then by the end one is certain that it's just ... bleah ... kind of nothing. The Howard Stern one is the only one worth watching in both seasons. On that note Howard has got older and wiser but is still fascinating and entertaining on his show. Howard forever! Hey nowwww.
Feb 22, 2019David Letterman should have known better. This entire documentary is fiction.
Sep 16, 2018relaxed, not forced, feels legit
Jul 04, 2018I love the intimate and heartfelt conversation
Jun 27, 2018Mildly entertaining at first but then just turned into Trump-bashing. There's enough of that type of "entertainment" out there.
May 12, 2018Boring and white bread. Can see why he was fired. He is completely out of touch and irrelevant.
May 03, 2018Letterman jumped the shark years ago
Apr 15, 2018Letterman is a master of vacuous interviewing. I do enjoy comedy, but that does not describe what occurs during these episodes - he celebrates stupidity. Watch his interview with Malala - it is embarrassing beyond belief.
Mar 30, 2018Exactly How chat shows began. One guest, no books, films, albums to plug. Dave seems genuinely humbled at times. Very moving in places. I cant wait for the next 3 editions. Hes still got it, and im not even an american. The beard is just an added bonus.
