David Letterman Returns To Talk Show TV With Barack Obama As First Guest

Beginning January 12, David Letterman will return to talk show TV with his new Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman.

The monthly series, consisting of one-hour chats, has announced six episodes thus far.

And Letterman’s first guest is quite the get – former President Barack Obama in his first talk show appearance since leaving the White House.

Future guests include George Clooney, Malala Yousafzai, Jay-Z, Tina Fey and Howard Stern.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, each episode will focus on just one guest with Letterman engaging in in-depth chat. Additionally, the show will have field segments also related to that installment’s guest.

The launch of the new show marks Letterman’s first return to regular appearances since he left CBS in 2015.

Watch the trailer below.

1970s Variety Special: Mary Tyler Moore with David Letterman, Michael Keaton & Swoosie Kurtz

Mary Tyler Moore sings and dances with David Letterman, Michael Keaton and Swoosie Kurtz in a number from Mary’s 1978 variety special.

I love 70s song and dance specials, but this is really pretty awful. David Letterman looks like he’s just trying to survive the segment.

And the choreography! They go from box steps to just plain jogging. Bless their hearts.

The funny thing is Mary is a talented singer and dancer herself. It’s just a shame this is a huge mess. But she sure does give it her all. I’ll say that much.

The first clip is Michael Keaton watching & remembering the experience with Dave, and the second clip is the number in it’s entirety.

David Letterman: The Final Top 10 List

Ten stars (Alec Baldwin, Barbara Walters, Steve Martin, Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Chris Rock, Julia Louis Dreyfus, Peyton Manning, Tina Fey and Bill Murray) participate in the final Top Ten list “Top Ten Things I’ve Always Wanted to Say To Dave.”

Chaka Khan Sings “It’s Raining Men” On David Letterman

Ten-time Grammy Award winner Chaka Kham performs (kinda) the mega-dance hit “It’s Raining Men” on David Letterman last night.

Folks tend to forget that Letterman’s side-kick, Paul Schaffer, wrote the pop hit.

You gotta give it to Chaka Khan: even though she clearly doesn’t know the song very well at all, her musical ear keeps her in the chord structure, and the voice is still fab.

Billy Eichner Hits The Streets Of NYC With David Letterman

Billy Eichner and David Letterman leave the comfort of the Ed Sullivan Theater to ask New Yorkers, “What should David Letterman do next?”

My favorite thing about the whole bit is how calm New Yorkers are at seeing one of the most famous men in television. So non-plussed.

Except the last woman – her screaming is better than Billy Eichner.
