David Letterman Thought a Woman Should Host 'The Late Show'

David Letterman is opening up about his thoughts on the new host of The Late Show, Stephen Colbert, and why he thought a woman should have replaced him.

“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.”

    Colberts ratings haven’t been too good so there’s still time for it to go to a woman.

    I like Colberts’ monologue compared to Jimmy’s. But Colbert guest booking seem to target a very narrow audience.

    I watch Colbert for the monologue, I go to Fallon for the guests.

    Except that’s not what he actually said. He didn’t say they should have. Just another stupid click bait headline. Yes, I took the bait, only to post this comment.
