By Antoinette Bueno
Entertainment Tonight is reaching a big milestone on Friday!
On Jan. 10, ET will air its 10,000th episode and to mark the achievement, ET will receive an official Guinness World Records title for the longest-running entertainment news TV show during the historic broadcast. ET premiered on Sept. 14, 1981 -- becoming the first-ever entertainment newsmagazine -- and has earned four Emmy awards.
The milestone episode will break down the show’s history by decade to illustrate the evolution of the show throughout its 40 years. In addition, ET will celebrate Rod Stewart's 75th birthday from London with an exclusive at-home performance and a special announcement from the legendary singer. There will also be an exclusive interview with Oprah Winfrey to look back at her time with ET since her first interview in 1985.
