David Letterman to Appear on 'Late Late Show'
David Letterman is headed to CBS' The Late Late Show.
The Late Show host will sit as a guest on the Jan. 27 episode, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed. Longtime Letterman friend Regis Philbin is guest-hosting Jan. 26 and Jan. 27.
Craig Ferguson ended his 10-year run as The Late Late Show host in December. His final guest was Letterman's former late night TV rival Jay Leno. A series of guest hosts have been taking over the show, in preparation for James Corden, who takes over on March 23, 2015.
Jan. 21, 5:40 p.m. An earlier version misstated the date of Letterman's appearance. THR regrets the error.
