Is Letterman planning on coming back next week?
Interesting news on Howard Stern's SIRIUS radio show this morning (I didn't listen to the show, but I have been listening to the satellite station's holiday music channels!). The King of All Media says that the people over at CBS' Late Show with David Letterman approached him about being the first guest when the show returns with new episodes...on December 3, which is next week! Stern says he thought about it but doesn't really want to go against the writers that are on strike.
Of course, this doesn't mean that Letterman plans to return to the show before the strike is settled (a la Carson Daly). The people over there could have just been lining up possible guests for when the strike is over, or possibly sending out feelers to see what guests would think about going on the show if the strike is still going on. Meanwhile, talks are at a stalemate.
