Great talent comes at a price, and Netflix knows this. It is paying David Letterman a whopping $2 million per episode for his web series.
In all, the streaming show will have 6 episodes and more seasons are also a possibility. For this season alone, David is taking home $12 million. This figure is in line with hosts in the TV space. Jimmy Fallon, Conan O’Brien, Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel take home roughly the same amount for their TV shows.
