Darlene Love talks singing 'Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)' on 'Letterman' -- for the last time

David Letterman’s reign as host of The Late Show ends in May 2015—and Friday marks his last holiday broadcast. Which means the episode will also be the last one to feature Darlene Love singing “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home).” Love first performed the song on Letterman’s show in 1986, when he was still hosting Late Night on NBC. 28 years later, the tradition is still going strong…until the end of the week, at least.

In advance of the performance, EW talks to the vocalist about the origins of the tradition, the end of an era, and why the song won’t be leaving TV for good.  READ FULL STORY

'Late Show with David Letterman' books Lindsay Lohan

Late night TV isn’t generally kind to Lindsay Lohan — which may be why the actress hasn’t done a formal interview there (or anywhere else) since her Liz & Dick promotional tour last November. Happily, Lohan’s long absence from the airwaves will end Tuesday, April 9, when the Mean Girls star will stop by the Late Show to promote her upcoming appearance on Charlie Sheen’s Anger Management. (Her next stop: Rehab.)

Lohan hasn’t appeared on David Letterman’s couch since May of 2007, shortly before Georgia Rule‘s theatrical release and her first DUI arrest. In 2011, the actress drew criticism after supposedly withdrawing from a planned Late Show Top Ten bit; as Letterman himself eventually explained, Lohan had never actually agreed to read the Top Ten list in the first place.


Michelle Obama to make return visit to 'Late Show with David Letterman'

First Lady Michelle Obama is set for another chat with David Letterman.

Her next appearance on Late Show with David Letterman will air on Wednesday, Aug. 29, right in the middle of the Republican National Convention, which runs Aug. 27-30 in Tampa, Fla.

As for where the interview falls in Obama’s schedule, she will be in the midst of her 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,” according to a CBS press release.

Next week’s show will be Obama’s third visit to the Late Show. She took on the program’s Top 10 duties in June when she presented the “Top Ten Fun Facts about Gardening,” and in March, she talked to Letterman about her Joining Forces initiative and which stores are worth “sneaking out” of the White House for (Target, of course! And PetCo too).

The episode will air at Aug. 29 at 11:35p.m. on CBS.

Michelle Obama to appear on 'Letterman'

Michelle Obama is bringing her chic style and master push-up skills to late night next Monday. FLOTUS is set to appear on Late Show With David Letterman on March 19. She will touch on her plans to mark the one-year anniversary of the Joining Forces initiative. Spearheaded by the first lady and Vice President Joseph Biden, the program stresses the struggle of military families and encourages Americans to help out.

This is Obama’s first time on the Late Show but it isn’t her first foray in the late night television. She dropped by The Tonight Show With Jay Leno to dish about the President’s favorite cake (red velvet) and Malia’s first cell phone. She also took on Jimmy Fallon in a fitness competition for the Let’s Move! initiative on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon back in February.
