Putting off for now the decision on whether to use guest hosts, CBS will get by another Letterman-less week with a little help from Dave's friends. Beginning Monday, "The Late Show with David Letterman" will feature a week of interviews with some of Letterman's favorite guests, sprinkled among snippets of their past visits to the show. The new interviews, which could account for as much as one-third of the hourlong shows, will be conducted by Paul Shaffer, Charles Grodin or Regis Philbin.

Looking for St. Paddy's day plans? Gov. Martin O'Malley's Irish rock band, O'Malleys March, has already sold out the early show for Saturday night in Baltimore, and by Thursday they'd sold three-fourths of the 200-person floor space in the Creative Alliance for the late show, the venue said. Earlier in the day, his political action committee O'Say Can You See sent out an invitation to the St. Patrick's Day show, which costs $25 a head.  Proceeds benefit the Creative Alliance, which advertised the show as " some Celtic fury.

Biff Henderson's evolution from stage manager to star began one morning in 1980, when David Letterman was in the midst of his own transformation from wise-cracking comic to talk show host. NBC had the gap-toothed guy, a favorite guest on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show, working as host of a morning show, which was a strange place for Letterman's late-night sense of humor. (This was the show on which Letterman set fire to the stage.) Henderson was stage managing in the wings when Letterman, on his way to do the monologue, suddenly pushed the startled stage manager toward the spotlight.

Joe Flacco must have been a strong enough draw Monday night to leave David Letterman wanting more Baltimore Ravens Super Bowl mojo. The "Late Show with David Letterman" Wednesday announced that Ravens coach John Harbaugh will be on Thursday night. Here's the release from CBS: John Harbaugh, head coach of the Super Bowl XLVII champion Baltimore Ravens, will visit the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN Thursday, Feb. 7 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.  John Harbaugh and his younger brother Jim Harbaugh, head coach of the San Francisco 49ers, became the first pair of brothers to serve as head coaches in the NFL back in 2011 and made more headlines this year when they became the first brothers in NFL history to face each other in a Super Bowl, one which quickly became dubbed the “Harbaugh Bowl.”  The Ravens went on to defeat the 49ers Sunday in Super Bowl XLVII by a score of 34-31, giving the Ravens their second championship title in franchise history.

With viewers rejecting most of the new network shows and stars this fall, NBC is going with the old tonight. Two of the network's biggest former stars return tonight, and they'll probably mean big ratings. PAGING DR. GREENE He lost his first wife to the law - and a lover in Milwaukee. He lost his dad to cancer. And after eight years on the show (1994 to 2002), Dr. Mark Greene (Anthony Edwards) left the world of ER altogether. But final seasons for long-running dramas and careers that don't exactly take off for stars who leave those dramas make for strange bedfellows.

London -- There's something you've got to understand about television in Great Britain:It can never be too dull.Gardening is a prime-time hit in the land of four over-the-air TV stations. An antiques show is very big on Sundays. And besides scoreless soccer games and cricket matches that go on for days, British viewers adore something called snooker, a sport that combines the drama of pro bowling with the aerobic exertion of billiards. Naturally, it's played by guys in formal wear.One other thing: "Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman" outdraws "ER."

CALVERT DEFOREST, 85 Letterman sidekick Calvert DeForest, the white-haired, bespectacled nebbish who gained cult status as the oddball Larry "Bud" Melman on David Letterman's late night television shows, died Monday in New York, Mr. Letterman's Late Show announced Wednesday. He made dozens of appearances on Mr. Letterman's shows from 1982 through 2002, handling a variety of twisted duties: dueting with Sonny Bono on "I Got You, Babe," doing a Mary Tyler Moore impression during a visit to Minneapolis and handing out hot towels to arrivals at the Port Authority Bus Terminal.

The image is pure show business, a scene ripped from the archives of HBO's "The Larry Sanders Show": As David Letterman lies in a New York City hospital bed, recovering from quintuple bypass surgery, agents and managers are calling up CBS' "The Late Show" to pitch clients as guest hosts. Oh, yes, and to ask how Letterman is doing. "My friend has had his chest ripped open, and within hours I'm getting calls from people who'd never given us the time of day who [now] wanted to guest host," "Late Show" executive producer Rob Burnett said last week.

First of all, let me tell what is not on tonight, so you can plan your viewing accordingly. While the Fox reality show, Secret Millionaire, returns for its second week, the segment featuring Baltimore's Molly Shattuck will not air until Dec. 17, according to a Fox spokesman. Executive producer Greg Goldman had told The Baltimore Sun that he thought the Shattuck episode would air this week, but viewers will just have to wait. This is the show that features millionaires going undercover to spend a week with people from less-privileged backgrounds, and them giving at least $100,000 to one of the people they meet.

The crushing full-court press wasn't getting anything done against unflappable Siena. A double-digit lead had evaporated. And, from those black folding chairs on the Louisville bench to the plastic red-and-blue seats all around the arena, it was clear to everyone that the top-seeded team was starting to panic. Coach Rick Pitino called a timeout and made a challenge. "You've got to prove to yourselves now you're a great basketball team," he told his rattled players. His carefree senior got the message.

There were also intervals of silence. Hours afterward, video of the visit had become an Internet sensation: By Thursday evening, a posting of the interview had been seen more than 180,000 times on YouTube.

CBS anchorwoman Katie Couric and the CBS Evening News come to prime time tonight, and if you haven't been watching the broadcast the past six months or so, I urge you to take this opportunity to check Couric and her newscast out. Here's the cynical explanation as to why the evening news for the first time will be shown in prime time: Fox has American Idol scheduled in the same time slot, so what has CBS to lose by throwing Couric up against it? In fact, CBS will save money by not having to put an expensive entertainment show on only to see it clobbered in the ratings.
