TED GRILLS DAVE
David Letterman is headed to ABC albeit for one night only. According to the The New York Times, the Late Show host has agreed to a sit-down interview with Ted Koppel to air the week of July 8 on ABC's new profile-oriented spinoff, Nightline: Up Close. Koppel asked Letterman for the interview back in March, after the whole "Will Dave replace Ted on ABC?" brouhaha was resolved with Letterman staying put on CBS. "Dave is no show-business weasel," says Late Show exec producer Rob Burnett. "He promised Ted, and he's going to do it." In return, Koppel will drop by Late Show on July 12.
