David Letterman will make an appearance on ABC’s The View next month. Rare is it for this CBS host to serve as a guest rather than a host for a talk show.

Letterman’s first appearance on the program on Sept. 7 will mark the start of the show’s 14th season, which will see the return of host Barbara Walters after she underwent surgery on a heart valve, according to the talk show's website.

"Fourteen seasons is quite an accomplishment, considering I wasn’t sure at the beginning if we’d last 14 weeks,” said The View's Executive Producer Bill Geddie in a press release. "As fall approaches, we set our sights towards another political season with an emphasis on women in politics. This is a season not to be missed."

Letterman has been a guest on The Oprah Winfrey Show and Live with Regis and Kelly.

The 63-year-old Letterman has been hosting his CBS show Late Night with David Letterman since 1983. He recently signed a contract with television network, which will keep him with the show until 2012.
