What a headline-making week it’s been for David Letterman and his Late Show.
Tuesday night he interviewed Capt. Sullenberger and the rest of the crew from US Airways Flight 1549; Wednesday night was the hilariously bizarre (and instantly classic) chat with Joaquin Phoenix AND the unveiling of Sports Illustrated’s new swimsuit issue cover girl, Bar Refaeli, with whom Letterman also conducted an interesting interview.
Now comes word that one of the world’s most popular bands, U2, will play the show for an entire week beginning March 2 to promote its new album No Line on the Horizon.
It will mark Bono and the gang's first Letterman appearance since October 2001 and the first time in the show’s history that a musical guest has been given the full week.
U2 unveiled its new album's first single, "Get on Your Boots," during the opening moments of Sunday night's Grammy Awards.

Late-night talk-show host David Letterman was an odd choice to unveil the cover of the latest Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue, but one glance at Bar Refaeli on that cover will make you forget that he -- and pretty much everyone else -- even exists.
The 23-year-old Israeli model, known by many as Leonardo DiCaprio’s girlfriend, has inexplicably been featured in the pages of the SI swimsuit issue over the past two years, relatively hidden, but this time she’s on full display.
Refaeli appears on the cover next to the teaser “Bikinis or Nothing” -- quite appropriate wording given the seemingly slipping-before-our-very-eyes bikini she sports on the cover.
Letterman revealed a billboard of the same shot in New York City Monday night, just in case the accident rate in the Big Apple wasn’t bad enough already.
This issue alone could help save the dying print-magazine industry!
