Home Celebrity Beatles Special Will Be Re-Broadcast on CBS Wednesday Night

The Beatles 50th anniversary is not over. CBS will re-broadcast the big special “The Night That Changed America,” tomorrow night from 8:30pm to 11pm. So set your DVRs!The first showing yielded 14 million viewers.

The network would be smart to put the whole thing out on DVD, or at least on iTunes, after this showing. The only other time that Paul and Ringo have played together, post- Beatles, was in April 2009 at Radio City Music Hall for the David Lynch Foundation. And that was not filmed, as far as anyone knows.

The re-broadcast should keep helping sales of Beatles albums. Amazon lists about ten different ones in their top 100 including the 2009 “black” box set. My advice: buy that one, and the individual “Hey Jude” album. And you’re all set!
