David Letterman: I Should Have Left Late Show '10 Years Ago'Newser — Bob Cronin
His Late Show ran from 1993 to 2015. "Nobody had the guts to fire me," Letterman said, "and I should have left like 10 years ago." When DeGeneres objected, he said: "You want to make sure you have some energy to direct toward other things. Now, you—nothing but energy—are doing other things while you're on television, so that's great. I did not." When he was absorbed in the Late Show, "All I cared about was myself." As DeGeneres pointed out, his new Netflix program, My Next Guest Needs No Introduction, takes less of his time.
