Letterman's Netflix show is like his groundbreaking NBC talk show in that it flouts convention. Also, unlike the current state of late-night TV, there are no gimmicks on his Netflix talk show. "Everything about My Next Guest suggests that for his second act, Letterman is operating in a similar, against-the-grain mode" as his original Late Night talk show, says Jen Chaney. "Instead of anchoring a nightly show, he’s rolling one out on a monthly basis. Rather than appearing on a major broadcast network, he has parked himself on Netflix. Instead of reciting top-ten lists and attempting to answer the eternal question, 'Will It Float?' Letterman is focusing solely on interviews and — at least so far — serious field segments that relate to the interview subject."
