Summary

There’s no point in recommending season 3. It’s David Letterman and if you don’t know the man by now, then maybe make a start on Netflix.

Netflix Talk Show My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman season 3 will be released on the streaming service on October 21, 2020.


Since his return on Netflix, I’ve enjoyed David Letterman in this format. It’s simple, and it brings a certain ambience. This is the first time I’ve reviewed his Netflix Talk Show. While I’m not going to micro-analyse his performance in the third season, I will markedly say that there is something about his interview style that is wonderfully unconventional.

My Next Guest Needs No Introduction with David Letterman is not a format that will get tiring and season 3 does not change anything dramatically. With this simplicity, the scope of conversation and where it can lead is widened by the lack of complication. Often, talk show hosts like to add segments, but David’s guests are so intensely high profile that the conversation itself is what makes the show.

Season 3 brings Lizzo, Dave Chappelle, Robert Downey Jr., and Kim Kardashian West. I think we can all agree that this is a blockbuster installment.

I decided to watch the Kim Kardashian interview, mostly because I’m fascinated by the family, and it irks me that some commentators heavily dislike them, for no genuine reason whatsoever.

And this is where David Letterman shines. Because of his interview approach, we get to learn about Kim in such a personal way that it allows the audience to feel something. It’s not just a Kardashian promotion; it’s a genuine conversation. Letterman has this way of making it an interview without it feeling like a formal interview. And the older he gets, the conversation replicates a back and forth with a grandparent rather than a TV personality trying to get the sound bites.

Kim digs deep; she talks about her family’s link to OJ Simpson, the infamous and embarrassing sex tape, and that famous night she was robbed at gunpoint in Paris. David Letterman pushes the boundaries as naturally and as softly as possible to make the 50-minutes as consuming as he can.

There’s no point in recommending season 3. It’s David Letterman and if you don’t know the man by now, then maybe make a start on Netflix.
