David Letterman Will Visit “Late Night” - David Letterman is headed back to the show he created, but only as a guest.
The iconic late night host will visit with Seth Myers on May 23 and the crew is excited. “Late Night” producer Mike Shoemaker touted the appearance on Twitter saying "It's Dave's show and we are just borrowing it. DAVID LETTERMAN will be our guest on Late Night with @sethmeyers on Wednesday May 23rd!"
Letterman hosted “Late Night” from 1982 to 1993. When he didn’t get the “Tonight Show” gig following Johnny Carson’s retirement, he moved to CBS and began “Late Show.” Stephen Colbert took over that show in 2015.
Letterman has returned to the small screen to host the Netflix show “My Guest Needs No Introduction.”

- Prince Harry pulled the unusual move of inviting three ex-girlfriends.
- And more surprising, they all said yes. They’d always dreamed of a Royal Wedding, but in the role of the bride.
“Hamilton” Comes To Bush 41 -
A lot of people would love to go see "Hamilton." Former President George H.W. Bush had "Hamilton" come to him.
The cast of the touring production of the Tony Award-winning musical stopped by Bush's Houston office yesterday for a special performance just for him. Bush was delighted and tweeted about the experience: "History never sounded so powerful."
The 93-year-old is recovering after being hospitalized recently for an infection. He lost his wife of over 70 years, former First Lady Barbara Bush, last month. The couple had been planning to attend the musical at its stop in Houston and the grieving widower certainly had his spirits lifted.
By the way, look for 41 to sport “Hamilton” socks soon!
