Malia Obama's Playful Diss of David Letterman Will Make You Spit Out Your Water

Malia Obama's Playful Diss of David Letterman Will Make You Spit Out Your Water
David Letterman is back. The former late-night talk-show host booked former President Barack Obama as his first guest for his new Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, and as expected, their candid chat was nothing short of amazing. On Friday, the first episode was released, and we finally got to hear what Barack has been up to since leaving the White House. In addition to discussing his impressive dance moves ("the key is staying in the pocket"), Barack also recalled getting choked up while sending Malia off to college last year. David also shared his own story with Malia that will make you spit out your water. "We were at a function at the White House, and I had never met either of your daughters. I see Malia, and I think, 'I just wanna say hello and thank you,'" David said. "I go over and I say,

David Letterman’s New Netflix Series Is Great Television That Could Test How Audiences Respond to Talk Shows

David Letterman’s New Netflix Series Is Great Television That Could Test How Audiences Respond to Talk Shows
It’s almost impossible that at no point in the time between David Letterman‘s last episode of “The Late Show” and when he filmed the first interview for his new Netflix series “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” did someone come up to the host and proclaim: “You should start a podcast!” Bringing his talents to audio probably wouldn’t be the greatest use of his skills — the most memorable parts of his time in a midnight timeslot were often written, recurring segments or ones that had a distinctly visual element to it.

But this new venture shows that, at this point in his career, the conversations are what Letterman now seems most interested in. So “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” is a happy medium between his old job and simply flipping on a microphone with a famous person and chatting for an hour. A hybrid between interview

8 Things We Learned From David Letterman's Interview With Barack Obama

8 Things We Learned From David Letterman's Interview With Barack Obama
Back in May of 2015, before David Letterman ended his three decade career in late night television, President Barack Obama appeared on the Late Show for the last time. The presidential campaign was just gearing up – both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump would formally announce their candidacies a few weeks later – and, with his imminent departure in mind, Letterman asked Obama about his retirement plans. "I was thinking you and me, we could play some dominos together, you know, go to the local Starbucks."

Two and half years, and one cataclysmic election later,

Letterman, who has thus far committed to six episodes (releasing monthly), began his latest venture by sitting down with former president Barack Obama.

How David Letterman Just Reinvented the TV Talk Show – Again

How David Letterman Just Reinvented the TV Talk Show – Again
Never mind the big, bushy beard – whenever David Letterman walks onto a stage and starts talking to an audience, he's still David Letterman. In the opening minutes of his new monthly Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, the veteran talk show host warms up the crowd in a cavernous theater at City College of New York; though he doesn't do a monologue per se, he does "do Dave." The man's still a little grumpy, a little goofy. For anyone who grew up watching him on NBC's Late Night

Barack Obama "Sobbed" After Taking Malia to College: "I Was Basically Useless"

Barack Obama
David Letterman booked a major guest for the premiere episode of Netflix's My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman: Barack Obama. The episode, now streaming, features a touching moment toward the end, when the former United States President talks about dropping his 19-year-old daughter Malia Obama off at Harvard University last summer. "It was like open-heart surgery, man," the 56-year-old said, echoing comments he made in another interview last fall. "One of the best descriptions I ever heard of children is it's like having your heart outside your body. They're not that smart, and they're kind of wandering around, crossing streets, getting on airplanes. You're like,...

David Letterman meets Barack Obama – has the talk show legend lost his edge?

In a new Netflix series, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman, the former late-night stalwart gently grills the former president, but perhaps it’s all a bit too pedestrian and polite

In May 2015, David Letterman bowed out after 33 years of being America’s most irascible late-night television host. It was a grand affair. A who’s who of American pop culture were there: Steve Martin, Alec Baldwin, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Tina Fey and Jim Carrey all made jokes at his expense, while making sincere comments about his impact on America, and them.

The Foo Fighters played Everlong over a montage of his best bits, tears were shed and then … well, late-night moved on. Stephen Colbert and the Jimmys (Fallon and Kimmel) took over. Dave disappeared, resurfacing briefly with a beanie hat and unkempt beard to berate “Trumpy” on the front cover of New York magazine. If

David Letterman & Barack Obama Ignore Donald Trump In Netflix Late-Night Debut

The mantra for David Letterman’s return to late night tonight heralded by an interview with Barack Obama on Netflix was crystal clear: see no Trump, hear no Trump, speak no Trump. Even with the early mention in the nearly one-hour My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman of possible Russian interference in our democracy, "the diminishment by the head of the democracy of the press," Twitter, the difference between Fox News viewers and NPR listeners, the…

'My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman': TV Review

First and foremost, the best thing about My Next Guest Needs No Introduction With David Letterman is that David Letterman is back. Let's get that out of the way.

Netflix having enough spare cash under the La-z-Boy to pay millions to bring one of the legends of late night out of retirement was, especially for all of us who didn't have it come out of our pockets, totally worth it.

Late night has, by the way, a whole lot of talent in its current, super-crowded neighborhood, but there will always be something special about Letterman for those who spent their...

DGA TV Nominations: Women Score Majority of Nods in Comedy Category

Melina Matsoukas is up for an award: HBO/YouTube

The Directors Guild of America (DGA) has announced the TV nominees for their annual awards, and women directors dominate the Comedy Series category, where three of five nominated episodes are woman-helmed.

Melina Matsoukas is being honored for “Master of None’s” “Thanksgiving” episode, for which Lena Waithe won an Emmy for penning, Beth McCarthy-Miller for “Veep’s” “Chicklet,” and Amy Sherman-Palladino for “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s” pilot.

This news is especially welcome in light of the fact that “Lady Bird” just won a Golden Globe for Best Musical or Comedy but the coming-of-age story’s helmer, Greta Gerwig, was snubbed in the directing category. It remains to be seen whether the DGA will do a better job of recognizing women directors than the Globes.

Just one woman received a nod in the Comedy Series category at last year’s DGA

David Letterman's comeback: can his Netflix show take him back to the top?

Three years after retiring from The Late Show, the long-serving TV host is back with a new show, with guests including Barack Obama and Tina Fey

It can hardly be said that there’s a shortage of formidable talkshow hosts in 2018. If anything, the form has undergone a renaissance thanks to Donald Trump, who’s provided for late-night television a salvo of punchlines and a new jolt of life. Those who’ve chosen to more brazenly address his presidency, like Stephen Colbert and Samantha Bee, have benefited enormously as a result, while hosts like Jimmy Fallon, who takes a more chirpy, apolitical approach, have seen their ratings dip.

David Letterman is making his Netflix debut this Friday with “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman,” and the first episode includes Barack Obama telling the story of when he danced with the late rocker Prince. “This was probably three or four months before he died, and Prince asked Sasha to come up and dance,” Obama said in a clip released Wednesday. He said that his youngest daughter then pulled him up to join in, which surprised him “because she always mocks my dancing.” “I have dad moves,” Obama said in the clip, giving hope to all dads out...

Obama Recalls Busting Out 'Dad Moves' with Prince and Sasha on Letterman's New Netflix Talk Show
