The retro look, which features the exact wording that was posted for “The Ed Sullivan Show” on Feb. 9, 1964, is covering the current “Late Show With David Letterman” marquee through the weekend in conjunction with CBS’ big Beatles tribute, “The Beatles: The Night That Changed America - A Grammy Salute” that will be broadcast from 8 to 10:30 p.m. ET/PT this Sunday. CBS will broadcast the primetime special 50 years to the day, date and time of the Beatles' U.S television debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show.”

The new show features popular artists both old and new performing songs by the Beatles, plus footage from the Sullivan show and other archival material. Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr taped an interview with David Letterman and without an audience Tuesday inside the theater for the special.
