    Netflix, which has been signing A-list comedians to its roster, is bringing late-night icon David Letterman back from retirement. The Internet network has picked up a six-episode series starring the former Late Show and Late Night host. Each hourlong episode will feature Letterman conducting a longform conversation with a single guest and in-the-field segments, in which he will explore topics on his own. The yet-untitled series is set to premiere in 2018. “I feel excited and lucky to be working on this project for Netflix,” Letterman said in a statement. “Here’s what I have learned: If you retire to spend...

    And so it ends the way it began – with a big party; a private party for friends and donors (redundant) that was closed to the press. Apparently it was casual Friday as both David Letterman and Robert DiNiro arrived in sweaters. I’m a little surprised DiNiro was allowed in at all, as he is on record having threatened to punch President Elect Trump in the face. I guess that’s okay though, since Trump isn't Black.The graybeards haven’t aged that well; possibly due to all the teeth gnashing over the past 2 months.The party was otherwise populated with what have...
  • Slams Final Letterman Shows as being "Unbearably White"

    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...

    Some things are more important than retirement. David Letterman was called back into action this weekend with a brand-new Top Ten List inspired by the recent presidential candidacy of Donald Trump. Although he’s been content since retiring as host of “Late Show” in May, Letterman called missing out on lampooning Trump’s White House bid “the biggest mistake of my life.”

    Admit it: Sarah Palin seems pretty prescient when it comes to David Letterman's creepy talk about sex. Palin excoriated Letterman last June after Letterman joked that one of Palin's daughters had been "knocked up" by New York Yankee player Alex Rodriguez.

    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...

    David LettermanÂ’s departure isnÂ’t the end of an era. The era of late night talk shows ended a while back. In Johnny CarsonÂ’s final week in the nineties, he played to an audience of twenty million. Lately, Letterman has been lucky to get 2 million. His final shows have played to around 5 million viewers.Late night talk shows still exist, but their intended audience mainly watches viral clips from them the next day. The average age of LettermanÂ’s audience is 54. CBS hopes that the equally smarmy Stephen Colbert will be able to bring his younger audience demo with him,...

    Last night was David Letterman’s last night, if you wonder why there are suddenly more articles about him than he had viewers. It’s going to be weird without having his show to skip. Television will be a bit less joyless when night owls start their shifts with the aging baby retiring, although many insomniacs won’t even notice. The Late Show’s cultural impact is minimal enough that Chevy Chase wonders what he did wrong. The past makes the present disappointing: it’s hard to explain to people born after Letterman began manning this slot that he created a most inventive approach to...

    Big Surprise Guests Spotted Entering Ed Sullivan Theater for Final Letterman Show When CBS announced the guests for David Letterman’s final run of shows as host of the Late Show, they conspicuously left out any names for the last episode, set to air tonight. Today, we learned that Letterman’s “favorite band,” the Foo Fighters, will be performing a song on Wednesday night’s show: And now, thanks to some tweets from fans and reporters staking out the Ed Sullivan Theater, we know a few more names set to stop by unannounced.

    NEW YORK – Hidden in the attention being paid to David Letterman leading to his May 20 retirement is the knowledge that it will also mean the end of a regular television role for America's bandleader, Paul Shaffer. The gravel-voiced sidekick, who's 65, isn't ready to leave show business even with the gig of a lifetime coming to a close after 33 years. "Of course, I had the old mixed feelings, sadness, etcetera," Shaffer said during an interview in his office behind the Ed Sullivan Theater. "Now I have come around to just being absolutely thankful for such a wonderful...

    David Letterman reportedly made a sexist joke at a taping of "Late Show" Monday night that left many audience members stunned, the New York Post reports. Letterman took questions from his audience and one college staffer reportedly asked the talk show host what advice he would give this year's graduates. A source told the Post Letterman responded, "Treat a lady like a wh-re, and a wh-re like a lady." When the 68-year-old's joke was met with stone silence, Letterman quickly added they should "eat a lot of salad" and be nice to others, the source told The Post. "I turned...

    Unless you have been stranded on Mars lately, you’ve probably already heard about the lies being told by NBC news anchor, Brian Williams, who has been suspended by the network for six months, a period which they hope will be enough time for everyone to forget about the incident and Williams can be restored to his anchor position, allowing him to then begin telling lies about the GOP challengers in the 2016 U.S. presidential race. Williams told David Letterman that, while he was reporting from Iraq, his helicopter was shot at in 2003, a claim which he has repeated several...

    Embattled NBC News anchor Brian Williams is backing out of scheduled appearance on David Letterman’s “Late Show” on Thursday. That news from NBC came Sunday, a day after Williams said he was stepping away from NBC’s “Nightly News” as the network looks into the anchor’s admission that he had told a false story about being on helicopter hit by a grenade while reporting on the Iraq war. Williams had spread the story of his helicopter being under attack during a previous “Late Show” interview with Letterman. He apologized for the statements on Wednesday, and NBC News launched an internal investigation...

May it help you nail the coffin that's given shelter to a corrupt press that would stop at nothing in their fight against right.Reports today claimed Tom Brokaw was calling on his former network to fire Brian Williams for lying for years about being hit by enemy fire in Iraq. Brokaw apparently denies the reports. (Personally, I hope Williams keeps his job as the face of network news to remind America how...
