Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), Democratic leader of the House of Representatives, will present the Top Ten List on the Late Show With David Letterman on Election Day, Tuesday, November 5, CBS announced this morning. This will be Pelosi’s second visit to the late night program. She last visited the broadcast seven years ago on August 22, 2006, ahead of the fall elections that made her the first female Speaker of the House. That same night, Kathy Griffin is booked to be on the show, as is Bruce McCall, who co-authored with Letterman the book This Land Was Made For You And Me (But Mostly Me): Billionaires In The Wild, which will be released Tuesday; and a performance from musical guest J. Cole.
Pelosi is known, among other things, as being game to make the rounds on daytime and nighttime talk shows including The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Rachael Ray, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, Late Show With David Letterman, The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and The Colbert Report. She also was a guest judge on the reality series Top Chef when the show was set in Washington in August 2010. But she made headlines when she played herself on 30 Rock‘s series finale, telling the then-Washington Post’s — now Deadline’s — Lisa de Moraes, “I would do almost anything Tina Fey asked me to do.”
