Letterman turns 30 (his show, that is) and Stern pays a visit

Hard to believe...well come to think of it, not that hard to believe...but David Letterman will have been in late night 30 years next Wednesday, and to mark the occassion: Howard Stern (photo). He'll turn up on "Late Show with David Letterman" for the 41st time...

 Meanwhile, J Lo's coming to the show, and so is James McCartney -- son of You Know Who. His appearance will mark his U.S. TV debut as a musician, and as you are aware, the Beatles appeared on this same stage a half a century ago.

  Here's more, from the press release:  

"...actor and comedian Stephen Merchant and the network television debut performance of the band Girls’ Generation (Tuesday, Jan. 31); a performance by musical guests The Airborne Toxic Event (Wednesday, Feb. 1); actor Woody Harrelson and a performance by much-talked-about new music artist Lana Del Rey (Thursday, Feb. 2); and Academy Award-nominated actress Michelle Williams, standup comedian Jake Johannsen and a performance by musician Ziggy Marley (Friday, Feb. 3)."

 And some more Dave factoids: 

As of Feb. 1, 2012, David Letterman will have hosted 5,443 shows and welcomed 17,904 guests in his 30 years in late night television
