David Letterman Thought a Woman Should Host 'The Late Show'
“I’m happy for the guys — men and women — there should be more women. And I don’t know why they didn’t give my show to a woman,” the 69-year-old former talk show host said in an interview with NBC News.
“That would have been fine. You know, I’m happy for their success. And they’re doing things I couldn’t do. So that’s great,” he added.
David also said that he “couldn’t care less about late-night television” and that he doesn’t miss his show as the program now has a different energy.
“When [Stephen] went on the air, an energy left me and I felt like, ‘You know, that’s not my problem anymore,’” he said. “I devoted so much time, to the damage of other aspects of my life. The concentrated, fixated, focusing on that…it’s good now to not have that.”
