Former President Bill Clinton will be a guest on The Late Show With David Letterman on Monday, CBS announced today.

It will be his ninth time on the show. His last appearance was on Oct. 12, 2011, when talking points included Clinton’s conditioner, trade deficits, and philanthropy. Clinton will be in New York for the annual meeting of his Clinton Global Initiative, according to the network’s press release.

The Clinton Global Initiative “convenes global leaders to create and implement innovative solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges,” according to its website.

Stephen Colbert to interview Bill Clinton

It looks like former president Bill Clinton is a fan of truthiness.

Stephen Colbert will host the closing session of the six annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative University and interview Clinton as part of the event. The closing session will take place Saturday, April 6 at Washington University, but if you can’t make it to St. Louis the CGI U-themed episode of The Colbert Report will air the week of April 8 (no official date was announced). This will be Clinton’s first appearance on the show.

In a press release Colbert joked, “I am thrilled and honored to be interviewing President Clinton, and I assume he is aware this is happening.”

One thing we know for certain, Bill Clinton is great on talk shows.

Martin Scorsese to direct Bill Clinton doc for HBO

The United States’s 42nd president is finally getting his close-up.

HBO announced today that Martin Scorsese will direct and produce a documentary about Bill Clinton for the cable channel. This will be the Oscar winner’s fourth collaboration with HBO; Scorsese helmed a pair of HBO documentaries in 2011 and 2010, as well as the pilot of Boardwalk Empire the latter year. The new film will be made with Clinton’s full cooperation — much like 41, the HBO doc about George H.W. Bush that premiered last summer.

Ratings: Bill Clinton scores for Democrats, edging NFL and Republicans

With the National Football League season’s first game on NBC, the Democrats were battling more than just the Republicans on Wednesday night — at least in the ratings war. And while more than 20.5 million viewers tuned in to watch the Giants and the Cowboys face off, Bill Clinton’s speech drew virtually an identical amount, 20.6 million — though he couldn’t match Michelle Obama’s television audience from Day 1. Moreover, for the second night in a row, the Democrats edged the Republicans in the number of eyeballs that tuned in to this year’s conventions. (Twenty million people tuned in to see Paul Ryan give his convention speech last week.)

The figures were down, however, compared to Day 2 of the 2008 convention, when 22.2 million people tuned in to hear Hillary Clinton make her address, endorsing her one-time rival, Barack Obama.

With Brian Williams and the NBC team taking the night off, the biggest beneficiaries were ABC and Fox News. During the prime speaking hour of 10 o’clock, ABC’s total viewers were up 42 percent, while Fox News scored a 29 percent uptick. ABC and CBS both leapfrogged over MSNBC to finish first and second for the night. READ FULL STORY
