Jimmy Kimmel might just be David Letterman’s biggest fan.

“I’d draw Dave’s face on every book cover. I was like a teenage girl in love with him,” Kimmel told The Hollywood Reporter, speaking of his childhood admiration for the late-night host. Well, now that infatuation has finally come to fruition – Letterman has agreed to appear on Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Kimmel’s own late-night talk show will broadcast from the Brooklyn Academy of Music from Oct. 29 to Nov. 2, and Letterman – who turned down an invitation to be Kimmel’s first guest – will join Stephen Colbert, John Stewart, and others opposite Kimmel. Musical acts for the week’s Brooklyn run include Alicia Keys, Sharon Jones and the Dap Kings, and the Avett Brothers.

Of course, it’s nothing new for talk show hosts to appear on each others’ shows. In fact, the world of late-night comedy shows seems like a cozy little town populated by a few marginally handsome men with penchants for self-deprecation. So in light of this news, here are five great show-hopping moments in late-night TV.

Nick Offerman sings ode to his wife Megan Mullally on 'The Late Show' -- VIDEO

Nick Offerman paid a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman last night and graced us with a ditty he uses to romance his wife, actress Megan Mullally.

The Parks and Recreation star whipped out a “conveniently-placed” guitar, then revealed that he composed “The Rainbow Song” for Mullally’s 50th birthday. “My first tip for prosperity is to engage in romantic love,” Offerman said. One example of such prosperity was his ode to Mullally, which included lines like “I’ve got my Cialis so I will not fail” and “You’re the one that I want to impale.” Enjoy a video of the performance below: READ FULL STORY

David Letterman: 'I don't hate Mitt'

In addition to alienating some of the 47 percent of Americans who he doesn’t consider part of his job to worry about, Mitt Romney also told a room full of wealthy donors that David Letterman “hates me” because he’s been on Jay Leno’s show more frequently. Letterman couldn’t resist responding to the secretly recorded speech, and he took a few minutes during last night’s show to reassure Romney that there are no hard feelings. Of course, such reassurance was expressed with typical Letterman impudence. “I don’t hate Mitt, and I think, now more than ever, he and his lovely wife Mrs. Mitt are more than welcome to come on the show,” Letterman said. “And I’m telling you, if you think you’re going to get to the White House, you have to spend time in this chair.”

Letterman also couldn’t resist lobbing a zinger at Leno: “I certainly don’t hate Mitt because he’s been on Leno’s show more; I mean why hate a guy who’s suffered through that.”

President Obama talks Romney, debt, Libya, and Hannah Montana -- naturally -- on Letterman

LETTERMAN-OBAMA

Why is our 44th president so happy? Probably because he got the chance to discuss everything from the recent violence in Libya to the tasty, honey-based beer the White House has been brewing on David Letterman’s Late Show tonight.

We’ll update with video from CBS once clips beyond this one are available. In the meantime, here’s an abridged list of highlights from Obama’s second trip to Letterman’s studio:

Michelle Obama on Letterman: Top 10 reasons to watch the DNC

On this, the final day of the Democratic National Convention, even die-hard wonks are feeling some political fatigue. For the past few weeks, it’s been nothing but “we built it”-this and “yes we can, again”-that and endless “Invisible Obama” jokes — and the volume of discourse will only increase as November inches closer. Even so, First Lady Michelle Obama thinks you should tune in to the DNC tonight… and not just because her husband’s giving a speech.

Last night, David Letterman had Obama read off her Top Ten reasons to watch the convention. Consider it before you decide whether to watch the president’s speech tonight — and remember, you don’t have to be a Democrat to enjoy balloons!

David Letterman: Top 10 Questionable Claims by Paul Ryan

Last presidential election cycle, David Letterman locked horns repeatedly with Mama Grizzly Sarah Palin, and ultimately ended up apologizing for joking about her family. But that experience didn’t make him gun-shy when it comes to ribbing Republican vice-presidential candidates. Paul Ryan might not be able to see Russia from his house — as Tina Fey, not Palin once said — but he’s facing increased scrutiny due to his many claims — both important and trivial — that have proven flimsy when examined closely. Last night, Letterman dedicated his Top 10 list to Questionable Claims by Paul Ryan. My favorite? No. 6: Was inspiration for Elton John’s “Tiny Dancer.”

Bruce Willis parodies RPattz/KStew drama on Letterman

In the wake of all the RNC/Eastwood hullabaloo, we almost forgot to mention Bruce Willis’s appearance on The Late Show last night. Like many in, around, and nowhere near Hollywood, the famously bald action star has been a little down in the dumps lately — all because Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson are no more. The poor guy is so sad, he can’t even say his catchphrase correctly! See how Bruce’s melancholy is affecting his new film, the latest entry in the Die Hard franchise:

Michelle Obama isn't watching the RNC, but she thinks you should -- VIDEO

Michelle Obama wants you to eat your political vegetables — though she, personally, is abstaining. The First Lady told David Letterman last night that she hasn’t been tuning into the GOP’s big Tampa comedy convention. But that doesn’t mean other Americans should follow her example: “Let me start by saying I, as the wife of the guy they’re running against, I tend not to watch it,” she explained. “But I think it’s important for everyone to watch these conventions, because this is the time where you get to know the party, you understand the platform, you understand the candidates. You know, this is technically where the campaign begins. So I think it’s very important for everyone to watch as much of both conventions as possible to make their decisions.”

Then Obama paused. “I… I didn’t watch it,” she admitted again, as the Late Show audience howled.

McKayla Maroney, though not impressed, dazzles on 'Late Show with David Letterman'

Vaulting specialist McKayla Maroney — the Posh Spice of the Fierce (née Fab) Five — coolly took the reins of a group interview clearly destined for doom on last night’s Late Show with David Letterman. Someone had to do it! Team USA’s host didn’t really know what was going on (though that’s his charm) and the other four gymnasts (Aly Raisman, pictured, Jordyn Wieber, Kyla Ross, and even Gabby Douglas) never make a peep unless prompted. We love them, of course, our hearts swell for them — but teenagers media-trained into oblivion do not make for good late-night TV. Cheers to Posh for breaking free and stealing the show.

This only strengthens our desire to have McKayla Maroney star in everything from now until Rio. Ryan Lochte can have 90210, fine, but McKayla gets all the others. Look for her as the fiercely short new girl on Pretty Little Liars, or maybe the human version of Ursula the Sea Witch on Once Upon a Time. (A gold medal infused with Bela Karolyi’s screams can replace the shell necklace containing Ariel’s singing voice.)

The Great McKayla TV Tour has only just begun! In our dreams. READ FULL STORY
