I’m not overly excited (understatement) about the Olympics. Let’s call it a day and move on to the new late night programming already.
Monday is the day! February 17 will be the inaugural episode of the Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. After all the hype and promotion, I am pleased with the first week lineup Fallon has managed to acquire. If only he could have locked down Anna Kendrick for one of the days…
First Week Guests – The Tonight Show
- Monday – Will Smith, U2
- Tuesday – Jerry Seinfeld, Kristen Wiig, Lady Gaga
- Wednesday – Bradley Cooper, Tim McGraw
- Thursday – Michelle Obama, Will Ferrell, Arcade Fire
- Friday – Justin Timberlake
Seth Meyers, also set to take over at Late Night on Monday, previously announced that his first guest would be Amy Poehler. Yesterday, they received a lot of buzz after releasing this tidbit over twitter.
