David Letterman on 'Late Show' Replacement: Would Have Been a 'Good Opportunity' for Black or Female Host

David Letterman gave a very candid interview to the New York Times about his The Late Show with David Letterman replacement.

“I thought, Well, maybe this will be a good opportunity to put a black person on, and it would be a good opportunity to put a woman. There are certainly a lot of very funny women that have television shows everywhere. So that would have made sense to me as well,” the 68-year-old talk show host said.

David also added that CBS did not consult with him about a possible replacement. “When we sign off, we’re out of business with CBS. I always thought Jon Stewart would have been a good choice. And then Stephen,” David added.

David will be stepping down on May 20 after hosting the show for twenty-two years.
