David Letterman was on “Ellen” recently, and opened up about feeling he was being selfish all the years he was on television.

Despite Ellen’s reactions, he says he stayed on TV too long but nobody had the guts to fire him.

Imagine being a LEGEND like Letterman and feeling that way…

He said he “was looking out the wrong end of the telescope” all that time.

Now, his Netflix show “My Next Guest Needs No Introduction” is full of long-form interviews and in-depth conversations and Ellen will actually be making an appearance soon!
