David Letterman’s Life After ‘Late Show’: Fishing, Family And Costco | Sunday TODAY


PAUL RUDD HOSTED THE SHOW WITH DJ CALIS.>>>FOUR YEARS AGO, DAVID LETTERMAN SIGNED OFF HIS SHOW FOR THE LAST TIME, AFTER 30 YEARS NA REVOLUTIONIZED TELEVISION. HE STARTED OUT AS A WEATHER MAN WHERE HE MOVED TO LOS ANGELES AND BROKE INTO COMEDY, CATCHING THE EYE OF JOHNNY CARSON. HE BEGAN HOSTING “LATE NIGHT WITH DAVID LETTERMAN” HERE ON NBC WHERE IN THE WEE HOURS OF THE MORNING HE READ OFF TOP TEN LISTS, STUPID HUMAN TRICKS AND DROPPED THINGS OFF THE BUILDING AT 30 ROCK. AFTER JAY LENO WAS NAMED AS SUCCESSOR ON “THE TONIGHT SHOW,” DAVE TOOK HIS ACT TO CBS. LAST YEAR, HE RETURNED WITH A LONG, WHITE BEARD AND A NETFLIX SERIES “MY NEXT GUEST NEEDS NO INTRODUCTION.” NOW HE IS BACK WITH SEASON TWO AND MORE BIG NAMES LIKE KANYE WEST AND ELLEN DeGENERES. WE HAVEN’T SEEN A WHOLE LOT OF DAVE SINCE HE LEFT LATE NIGHT. SO WHEN HE INVITED US TO GO FLY FISHING, WE GRABBED THE RODS AND THE WADERS FOR A SUNDAY SITDOWN. WHAT KIND OF FISHING DO YOU NORMALLY DO?>>I LOVE FISHING. I FISHED ALL MY LIFE. I WOULD FISH WITH MY DAD AND WE WOULD GO OUT AT LEAST ONCE A WEEK FISHING, AND WE CAUGHT SO FEW FISH, WE NEVER KNEW WHAT WE WERE FISHING FOR. AND AS A RESULT, WE HARDLY EVER CAUGHT FISH. AND THAT STAYS WITH ME TODAY. >>WE HAVE THAT IN COMMON. MY DAD AND I USED TO GO OUT ALL THE TIME. IT FELT LIKE A FATHER/SON RITUAL, AND NOT CATCH FISH. >>THAT’S RIGHT. THINKING BACK ON IT NOW, I’M NOT SURE WE WOULD KNOW WHAT TO DO, HAD WE CAUGHT A FISH. I THINK THE FISH CAN SENSE IT THROUGH THE ROD, DOWN THE LINE AND INTO THE FLY THAT, OH, THIS GUY IS A LOSER, BECAUSE I JUST — I CAN’T CATCH FISH. EVERY FISH I’VE CAUGHT IS A MISTAKE. >>I FEEL LIKE YOU’RE SAND BAGGING A LITTLE, KEEPING THE BAR LOW, SO WHEN YOU DO CATCH FISH — >>WILLEE, I’M NOT LYING TO YOU. I KNOW QUITE A BIT ABOUT THIS SPORT BUT I’M JUST NO GOOD AT I IT. >>HOW IS IT GOING, DAVE?>>GOT ABOUT SIX. >>SIX WHAT?>>TIRED OF CATCHING FISH. >>NOTHING YET, DAVE. >>DON’T WORRY. IT WILL BE THAT WAY FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS. >>FIRST THING I’M GOING TO ASK YOU, DAVE, IS THE BEARD. WHEN I SAID I’M GOING TO COME TALK TO YOU, THEY SAID, DOES HE HAVE THE BEARD? I SAID I DON’T KNOW. I’LL REPORT BACK TOMORROW. HERE IT IS. >>DO I HAVE IT?>>YES. TELL ME ABOUT THE BEARD. >>TELL ME ABOUT THE TOUPE. >>YOU WENT RIGHT TO IT. >>I’VE BEEN WAITING TO USE THAT LINE FOR FOUR YEARS. I WISH I HAD A STORY. I WAS JUST TIRED OF SHAVING AND NOW I’M AFRAID TO SEE WHAT’S UNDER THERE. >>THAT’S IT?>>THAT’S PRETTY MUCH IT. >>SO PEOPLE WHO LOVE YOU, YOU’VE BEEN OFF THE AIR FOUR YEARS NOW COMING UP HERE JUST ABOUT FOUR YEARS. >>YEAH. >>WONDER WHAT DOES DAVE DO? WHAT’S HIS DAY-TO-DAY?>>I’LL TELL YOU SOMETHING, WILLIE. WHEN I WAS ON THE AIR, I DIDN’T REALLY HAVE A SENSE OF ANY SORT OF GREATER EXPERIENCE THAN JUST BEING ON THE AIR. AND SINCE I STOPPED BEING ON THE AIR, PEOPLE ARE REALLY, REALLY NICE TO ME. AND I FIND IT SO GRATIFYING, WHETHER THEY’RE LYING OR NOT. IT’S JUST A WONDERFUL THING TO HAVE PEOPLE COME UP AND EXPRESS WHAT I BELIEVE TO BE IS SEMI REALISTIC SENTIMENT. AND IT’S DELIGHTFUL. >>WERE THEY NOT PREVIOUSLY NICE TO YOU? OR YOU’RE JUST NOTICING IT?>>USED TO BE A LOT OF THERE HE IS, GET HIM! GET HIM! HE’S OVER THERE. BUT YOU DON’T EXPECT IT TO BE A FACTOR THIS FAR OUT. LIKE TODAY, I GOT UP EARLY AND STARTED LOOKING FOR A DEAL ON WALK-IN TUBS AND NOW HERE I AM WITH YOU. >>WALK-IN TUBS. >>YEAH. ONE JUST ROSE RIGHT OUT THERE. >>NO. >>GOSH DANG IT. >>THE MOMENT WE STEP OUT OF THE STREAM. >>WE WOULDN’T HAVE GOT HIM ANYWAY. >>AS YOU SIT HERE TODAY, DAVE, DO YOU MISS DOING LATE NIGHT TV?>>THE FIRST YEAR I SURE DID. WHEN THEY WISE UP AND LET YOU GO, YOU’LL GO THROUGH IT, BECAUSE, YOU KNOW, YOU GET INTO A RHYTHM. SO I MISSED THAT. AND THEN I REALIZED, I DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO STUFF. LIKE, YOU KNOW, HOW DO THESE PHONES WORK? STORES ARE DIFFERENT. I WOULD GO INTO THESE — I WENT INTO A — WHAT DO YOU CALL IT? ONE OF THESE BIG OLD — OH, COSTCO. OH, MY GOD. >>YEAH. >>IT WAS CRAZY. FIRST THERE’S A LOT OF PAPERWORK AND YOU HAVE TO HAVE YOUR PICTURE TAKEN. >>THAT’S RIGHT. >>THEY SIGN YOU UP. I GOT LIKE THE GOLD PREMIUM MEMBERSHIP, BECAUSE I DON’T WANT THEM TO THINK, YOU KNOW, I’M A PIKER, YOU KNOW. AND THEN YOU WALK AROUND AND I WENT IN THERE LOOKING FOR SOCKS.>>AT COSTCO? A LOT OF SOCKS. >>THAT WAS JUDGMENTAL, WASN’T IT?>>NO, I JUST — >>NO, NO, I HEARD THAT. BUT YOU WERE JUDGING ME. >>HOW MANY PAIR DID YOU NEED, I GUESS, MY QUESTION. >>WE ENDED UP WITH CLOSE TO 100 PAIR. CLOSE TO 100 PAIR. BUT THAT’S ALL RIGHT. >>FOR A GREAT PRICE. >>I BOUGHT THAT. THERE’S ANOTHER ONE. HOLY GOD! YEAH. BEST PART IS, YOU KNOW, I GET TO DO STUFF WITH MY SON. PEOPLE ALWAYS SAY, WELL, YOU KNOW, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO BE THE KID’S BEST FRIEND. AND I SAID SCREW THAT. LOOK AT ME. HOW MUCH LONGER AM I GOING TO BE AROUND? I WANT TO BE HIS BEST FRIEND. HE’S NOT KEEN ON ME. >>SO HARRY, AS HE MOVES INTO HIS TEEN YEARS, IS NOT AS KEEN ON HANGING OUT WITH DAD AS YOU WOULD HAVE LIKED?>>THAT’S RIGHT. NEITHER IS HIS MOTHER. BUT I RECOGNIZE WHEN I WAS HIS AGE, MY DAD AND I, YOU KNOW, LIKE ONCE A MONTH WE WOULD DO SOMETHING TOGETHER, YOU KNOW. BUT HE WAS WORKING SIX DAYS A WEEK. I’LL TELL YOU, AT MY AGE — YOU KNOW, THIS IS NO BREAKTHROUGH REVELATION, BUT THE MOST SECURE I EVER FEEL IS WHEN I’M AROUND MY SON. >>YES. >>THERE’S ANOTHER ONE. THEY’RE REALLY STARTING TO COME UP NOW. >>COME ON. >>YEP. >>LET’S TALK ABOUT THE SHOW, NETFLIX SHOW. SEASON TWO COMING BACK. INCREDIBLE LINEUP. PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES, BARACK OBAMA, JAY-Z, TINA FEY. MALALA, HOWARD STERN, THE WHOLE LIST. WHO CAN WE EXPECT THIS SEASON?>>TIFFANY HADDISH, A WOMAN I DID NOT KNOW AND FOUND HER TO BE DELIGHTFUL. >>YES. >>SHE WAS GREAT. KANYE WEST. WHEN I WAS DONE WITH KANYE, I KIND OF FELT LIKE I WANTED TO KIND OF FATHER HIM. I THINK HE’S IN GOOD HANDS AND I THINK HE’S SO ARTISTICALLY SMART. >>YES. >>MELINDA GATES. >>NICE. >>WE’RE LUCKY, SO LUCKY. SHE IS WITH PEOPLE WHO HAVE NOT BEEN LUCKY. GOD BLESS PEOPLE LIKE HER AND WHAT THEY’RE DOING. EVERYBODY I’VE TALKED TO ARE SO MUCH SMARTER THAN I AM, AND THAT’S HUMILIATING, OF COURSE. YOU LEARN STUFF. YOU LEARN STUFF ABOUT THEM. YOU LEARN STUFF ABOUT THE WORLD. YOU GET A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. THERE’S ANOTHER ONE. MAN. >>ARE YOU PUTTING ME ON TO GET ME TO TURN AROUND?>>I’M NOT. WE’LL SWITCH CHAIRS. >>YEP, THE TROUT STARTED RUNNING LIKE CRAZY THE MINUTE WE GOT OUT OF THE STREAM. WILL DAVE AND I CATCH A SINGLE FISH? THE ANSWER TO THAT PRESSING QUESTION. PLUS, LETTERMAN’S TAKE ON THE WAY FALLON, IN ON THE CURRENT STATE OF LATE NIGHT TV WHEN WE STATE OF LATE NIGHT TV WHEN WE COME BACK IN 45 SECONDS.

  1. Letterman's show – and he – stopped being funny when he stopped doing the monkey cam, Larry "Bud" Melman, stuff. After that, the show became just another talk show, a few guests hawking their latest movie or book. What, the beard suddenly makes him, what, some kind of a sage? Decades since he was remotely funny.

  2. What kind of fishing do you do Dave?

    The kind that murders fish thank you. 🤦

    I never laughed so hard at somebody claiming to be a fisherman.

    Who then states as do all murderers of animals that it's all about the fish and how fishermen save fish.
    As do hunters and all people that abuse torment enslave and other tortuous events that humans do against animals.

  3. Dave is one of America's living treasures. His latest show is not (as far I know) on Australian TV. 🙁

  4. Do love Dave from the early beginning shows to today! Made me get through many late nights wide awake as a "kid" to approach the next day. A modest genius of my lifetime following him into me being an "old man" of 53 now!

  5. Good to see Dave doing well, I miss his comedy. So Dave… fly fishing is all about fly selection and presentation. I suggest Vince Marinaro’s book “In the ring of the rise”. When in doubt use caddis dry or pink San Juan worm in the riffles. Tight lines Dave!

  6. I never tried to fly fish like Dave & Willie did in this video.  I use a spin casting rod the same way my grandfather taught me, like a conductor in an orchestra. It drives the fish nuts. I catch Northern pike, brook trout, small mouth bass, blue gill and perch. Clean 'em, roll 'em in corn meal and fry 'em in Crisco. Yum! Yum!

  7. 5:40 – David has been saying this "I'll not be around for long" in terms with how long he will be with his son, as he is an older father. However Harry has been lucky to have David around since he was born in 2003. 16 years. I only had my dad around for 10 years, when he died from lung cancer when I was ten in 1995. So Harry should count his blessings to have David around for as long as possible, because when your dad is dead, that is hard, trust me, I know.

  8. Needs to trim that beard short, lose it, or stay in the woods. Then just get medicated for his TDS and he'll be good ol dave again !

  9. In the grand scheme of things he's been successful. He was probably always aware of what really matters in life and we'll grounded.

    What a luxury to be in conversationt by a beautiful river or stream and not have to look at your watch to see what the time is.

  10. https://www.wakingtimes.com/2018/12/14/in-2019-scientists-funded-by-bill-gates-to-spray-particles-into-the-sky-in-first-experiment-to-dim-the-sun/?utm_campaign=meetedgar&utm_medium=social&utm_source=meetedgar.com&fbclid=IwAR0ytg0ktiOVuBVKVDV3QRO99ESN1Qd6brJkFPgZS3DvE1tHF50BadU4M3Q

  11. I love Dave so much. The pace of this interview does not match Dave's energy at all but I'll take what I can get. A real fan should've interviewed him.

  12. If someone, if…no one gets Dave to play John Huston in a movie before it's too late, they're all making a big mistake.

  13. Today we have all the wanna be's but no one will ever top what Carson and Letterman did for late night TV.

  14. I would not have know who he was with The beard he would make a awesome Santa Claus you want nice fish you should be in Canada northern Quebec northern Ontario thousands of lakes we miss Dave letterman

  15. He wasn't pulling the fly in… just chilling hahahaha. Fly doesn't just chill in the water. They move lol

  16. I started watching and was all happy this stuff is being posted. Then I heard about coming up in part 2 and it hasn't been posted 3 weeks later. Now I'm just annoyed with the Today show.

  17. His last two or three years he was just a cranky, bitter liberal. His humor and brilliance had succumbed to his agenda.

  18. Letterman has completely lost what was left of his feeble mind. Too bad he didn't drop himself off the roof of that building he threw the watermelons from.

  19. Hire a guide Dave, even good fishermen benefit from having a local pro walk you through the basics of what works. match the hatch, you know.

  20. 1:45 we can sense you're a loser too. Glad you're gone and hope the rest of the late night losers will leave also. Did he always have the "crazy look" or did he just develop it ??

  21. Sucks that people get old… sucks bad lol wish Dave would shave his beard so he didnt look as old it makes me sad Haha but he seems so much happier than he has seemed in years and years so that's cool glad hes happy doin his thang

  22. Dave's job now is checking his lists, fattening up, training the elves, feeding the reindeer, testing toys, wrapping presents, and getting everything ready for December.

    Unfortunately Dave will also be knitting a Soviet Union flag like a good leftard.

  23. People worship celebrities regardless of their lack of character. Letterman is undoubtedly one of the biggest a-holes who ever lived. He is mean-spirited. He is bitter. He takes advantage of young women working for him.
