So apparently I needed a week off after Conan left the air (repeats don't count!) before talking about late night television again.
I'll try not to write too much about Conan, since he's pretty much dominated this spot the last 2 weeks, but I'd be remiss if I didn't talk about his final Tonight Show just a little bit. Even if you're not a fan of his style of writing and performing, you have to admit (okay, maybe not everyone, but most do) that his final show was a spectacular hour of television.
Not only are almost all the late night shows back from the holiday hiatus tonight, but the start of the new year also means ShowbizMonkeys.com is looking back at both the 00s and 2009 itself. We begin that look back tonight, as I present our 2009 Late Night Awards!!!!!
Okay, so they're not that exciting... but here they are anyway.
I don't have very much time to write a lot before posting this week's late night talk shows listings.
It's time for some great late night television!
Hey everybody, it's Thanksgiving week (well, in the U.S. anyway -- us Canucks ate our turkey and pumpkin pie over a month ago). Surprisingly, though, the entire late night schedule ISN'T repeats this week. Some shows took the whole week off, while other shows are airing 3 or 4 days of new episodes, and a couple are even airing a whole week of new shows.
Hi everybody! So... whoops? I'm a day late in posting this week's talk show guests. I guess I'm still so excited about that Kevin Pollak interview posted last week that I've completely lost track of what day of the week it is.
Another week in talk shows, another week of the same ol' listings, right? Wrong! I've made two posts today that might be of interest to fans of late night television, talk shows, and this weekly post.
My apologies for skipping last week's late night listings. In my defense, I was preparing for a 2-week trip down to Las Vegas and Los Angeles. Plus, last week was mostly repeats, anyway, so I'm sure you didn't miss things too much!
However, THIS week is an exciting week in late night television! Why? Because yours truly will be attending 2 tapings LIVE in L.A.
Sorry things are a little bit late today. It's Thanksgiving Monday up here in Canada, and the day was filled with (Canadian) football and pumpkin pie! Those on the West Coast will still be able to use Monday's listings, and my apologies to those everywhere else.
