David Letterman talks about his last show

The 'Late Show' host, David Letterman talked about his views on the late-night show in an interview with the New York Times. Letterman revealed that he wasn't asked for his opinion in the network's decision to name Stephen Colbert for replacing him.

David Letterman talked about many other issues to The New York Times in a rare interview, not more than a month before he took his final bow at the Ed Sullivan Theater.

The extrovert Late Show host also talked regarding plans for his final show, what is going to happen that night and what he'll do afterwards. He also talked about the current late-night landscape, his rivalry with Jay Leno, his memories of Johnny Carson, his 2000 heart surgery and 2009 sex scandal.

According to Letterman, he's ‘awash in melancholia’ and ‘full of trepidation’ as his final show approaches.

According to Letterman, all big changes in his life were full of fear. “When I left Indiana and moved to California. When [my wife] Regina and I decided to have a baby — enormous anxiety and trepidation. Those are the two biggest things in my life, and they worked out beyond my wildest dreams”, he added. He said that he thinks that same will happen again and he’ll miss the show very much.

He said on a serious note that he has decided what he'll be exactly doing on his final show and there are still many other things in the works, in which he is not involved. Regarding his last show, he said that it will not be like Carson's goodbye.
