Kanye to need no introduction on the next season of Letterman's Netflix chat showDavid Letterman’s Netflix series My Next Guest Needs No Introduction works by breaking down the often elaborated-upon talk show formula into its most simple, elemental form: One conversation, one legendary host, one guest. (Plus a few field segments, but let’s be honest: That’s not why anybody’s tuning in.) That format only works, obviously, if said guest can carry the weight of that kind of scrutiny, i.e., if they’re interesting enough, zeitgeist-y enough, and simply “needs no introduction”-y enough to justify Letterman’s fascination with their lives and careers. In the show’s first season, that list did pretty well for itself, featuring as it did folks like Tina Fey, Howard Stern, and former government employee Barack Obama . Now, we can apparently add Kanye West to Letterman’s list of fascinating friends.
