The Daily Show with Jon Stewart

We’ve learned that most boring sounding Daily Show guests usually end up being the most interesting. For example, Wednesday’s guest, Secretary Ernest Moniz, doesn’t sound too flashy, right? WRONG. Check out this guy’s hair.

MONDAY: Brian Grazer (producer & author – “A Curious Mind: The Secret to a Bigger Life”)
TUESDAY: Willie Nelson (musician & author – “It's a Long Story: My Life”)
WEDNESDAY: Secretary Ernest Moniz (Secretary of Energy)
THURSDAY: Mumford & Sons (band – “Wilder Mind”)


The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore

Larry is a self-described “Blerd” and today is Star Wars Day, so don’t be surprised to see him mention Star Wars on tonight’s show. DO be surprised to find who will be sitting in on the panel this week because we have no clue. It kind of makes you wonder why we bother mentioning The Nightly Show in this late night guest roundup at all, eh? Well, as Luke Skywalker once said, “Aww but I was going into Tosche Station to pick up some power converters!”. Wait, sorry, that doesn’t apply at all.

Jimmy Kimmel Live!

Did anyone catch Jimmy accompanying Manny Pacquiao to the ring on Saturday night? Now you have. Anyway, isn’t it funny how Adam Devine and Adam Levine are both on the show this week? If they had a baby they could name it Adam Adam Devine-Levine Jr. Jr.

MONDAY: Ryan Seacrest, Brittany Snow, Music Mashup from Imagine Dragons and REO Speedwagon
TUESDAY: Julie Bowen, Adam Devine, Music from Imagine Dragons
WEDNESDAY: Adam Levine, Nicholas Hoult, Music from Maroon 5
THURSDAY: Hailee Steinfeld, Music from Brandon Flowers
FRIDAY: Kim Kardashian West, Michael Sheen, Music from Yelawolf featuring Travis Barker


Elsewhere

Our willingness to promote late night shows on our sister channels is highly influenced by the philosophy and wisdom of Star Wars. Remember when Yoda said “…No. There is another”? He was talking about watching TV and having options.
