NEW YORK (AP) — New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie will soon be crossing the Hudson River to appear on "Late Show with David Letterman."
CBS says the colorful, outspoken Christie will make his first appearance with Letterman on Monday.
The guest shot follows numerous jokes by Letterman at the expense of Christie and his ample girth.
Christie termed his plumpness "fair game" for comedians at a 2011 news conference. But maybe he'll arrive for "Late Show" with some droll observations of his own to target Letterman.
"Late Show" airs on CBS at 11:35 p.m. EST.
