Default The Beatles to Get CBS Grammy Special



http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/new...special-656029

"The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles" will air 50 years after the Fab Four's U.S. TV debut on "The Ed Sullivan Show" in 1964.

The Beatles are getting a two-hour special on CBS.

The Night That Changed America: A Grammy Salute to the Beatles, which celebrates the 50th anniversary of the Fab Four's U.S. debut performance on The Ed Sullivan Show in 1964, will air Sunday, Feb. 9, 2014 from 8-10 p.m. ET/PT, the network announced Thursday.

Taping the day after the Grammys on Monday, Jan. 27, the special will also highlight the legacy of the seven-time Grammy-winning group.

Though though no names were announced, CBS says that "today's top artists" will cover songs performed by The Beatles while appearing on Ed Sullivan Show, as well as other songs throughout the group's career. Various presenters will also highlight the impact -- musical, cultural and historical -- of the group and their TV appearance, which drew 74 million viewers.

“That night 50 years ago on the Ed Sullivan stage, the Beatles delivered a momentous performance, and America witnessed a historic television event and the beginning of a new era in music,” said Jack Sussman, CBS Entertainment executive vp of specials and events.

Added Neil Portnow, president/CEO of The Academy: "As the Grammy Awards are music’s biggest night, it's only fitting that we recognize this milestone moment in music history and pay tribute to this larger-than-life group and their enduring music and legacy.”

AEG Ehrlich Ventures will produce the special, with Ken Ehrlich as executive producer.

I think I'd want to know a little more about it. Maybe they should re-air the Sullivan episode in its entirety. If its just gonna be modern music stars covering Beatles I'm not sure I'm gonna be that interested

Wonderful time in history.

Lou Harrison said she was one of the few people who saw the boys in color the first time [in 1964] they performed on Ed Sullivan.

George and Paul were so adorable!

Well, I'll probably be in and out. I'll watch the Paul & Ringo parts or any Beatles parts for sure, but I'm not sure i'm gonna be that interested in the rest

I'm not a fan of any of the newer artists performing (though I appreciate some of them), but pleeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaase if Ringo phoning it in on "Octopus's Garden" is somehow preferable.

I'm hoping this gets shown in the UK but there's no sign of a broadcaster picking it up - so far.
