MY NEXT GUEST NEEDS NO INTRODUCTION WITH DAVID LETTERMAN
January 12, 2018  | By David Bianculli

Netflix, 3:00 a.m. ET

 
SERIES PREMIERE: This new Netflix talk show brings David Letterman back to television – and to non-broadcast TV, in a regular series, for the first time, after sitting behind a desk at NBC and CBS starting in 1980. For this new series, there’s no desk. There’s also no band, though Paul Shaffer wrote the theme music – and there is an audience, courtesy of the City College in New York. The idea is to present one hour-long talk show per month for six months, starting with tonight’s sit-down chat with former President Barack Obama. It’s great to have Letterman back, and to watch an hour of mostly uninterrupted and free-flowing conversation, too. For my full review, listen to today’s edition of NPR’s Fresh Air with Terry Gross and for a full review on TVWW, see David Hinckley’s All Along the Watchtower.
