‘Letterman’ to Host British Prime Minister David Cameron

David Cameron's visit to "Late Show With David Letterman" marks the first time a sitting British prime minsiter has appeared on a CBS late-night program

David Letterman and presidential candidate Mitt Romney might be at odds — depending who you ask — but the late-night host is willing to sit down and have a chat with England's political leader David Cameron.

The Sept. 26 appearance will mark the first time that a sitting British prime minister has appeared on a CBS late-night program. (former PM Tony Blair has appeared twice on "Late Show.)

Cameron, who has been the United Kingdom's prime minister since 2010, will be in New York to take part in the United Nations' General Assembly.

During Romney's now-infamous "47 percent" speech at a Florida fundraiser, the former Massachusetts governor told donors that Letterman "hates me" because he appeared more often on Jay Leno's rival late-night show. Letterman has since denied that claim, inviting Romney on-air to appear on his show again.
