Will Be The First Lady’s Third Visit to the LATE

First Lady Michelle Obama will visit the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, Wednesday, August 29 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.


This will be the First Lady’s third visit to the LATE SHOW. She last appeared on the program on June 5, 2012, when she presented the “Top Ten Fun Facts about Gardening.” She also sat down for an interview with Letterman during her first appearance on the show on March 19, 2012.


The First Lady will visit the LATE SHOW and New York City as part of a back-to-school media tour, where she will discuss helping parents get their children ready to return to the classroom as well as important changes to school lunch programs nationwide to provide healthier, more nutritious food.


The LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN is a production of Worldwide Pants Incorporated. Barbara Gaines, Matt Roberts, Jude Brennan, Maria Pope, Eric Stangel, Justin Stangel and Rob Burnett are the executive producers.


RATING: TV-PG (Rating may change on day of broadcast due to specific subject matter.)

    It’s time for Democrat Dave to take a hike. With Jimmy Kimmel moving to 11:35pm, he’ll hurt Letterman more than Leno.

    I figured that he would have a prominent Democrat on during the GOP Convention. Dave is so pridictable. Making rich-Romney jokes while Letterman’s got a $28 million contract with CBS plus more CBS dough going to Letterman’s “Worldwide Pants” production company.

    Doesn’t that make Dave a 1%er?

  • Laura

    I believe the Obamas are really in show business and not politicians since they spend all of their time flying around the country (at taxpayers expense)and you rarely hear about them staying in the White House. Makes one wonder why he ran for the job when he doesn’t want to do it?

  • Ralph Hahn

    @Laura: Barack LOVES softball. I mean softball questions. That’s why he’ll go on “Entertainment Tonight,” “People” magazine and a New Mexican radio station and talk about his favorite Mexican food. Except for the three questions he gave answers to at his impromptu press conferencenlast week, two of them were lobbed by softball pitchers. The third was a legitimate question requiring a straight answer, which he addressed quickly then high-tailed out of there. Dave & Michelle may actually get around to talking about Romney’s taxes. :-o

    Our First Lady is over-exposed. Too many TV show appearances; but I am for
    the Children’s healthy eating. It’s a good thing.
