Late-night is coming back and the guest lists are starting to be filled.
The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon will return on Monday with guests including Matthew McConaughey and pop star John Mayer.
More from Deadline
Fallon said that SAG-AFTRA member McConaughey will be promoting his new book Just Because, a children’s tome. Mayer recently took part in Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Festival, where the sometimes Dead & Company star played a cover of Grateful Dead’s “They Love Each Other.”
Elsewhere on NBC, Seth Meyers is taking over his entire Late Night show with A Closer Look. The political segment, which is usually 15-20 minutes will run for the entire show, which Sal Gentile, who writes the segment joked that afterwards he will be “euthanized”. There’s plenty to cover given that the late-night hosts have been off for around five months and missed plenty of political news including more Donald Trump indictments.
Guests are being shored up over at The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Kimmel Live!, so expect an update on that tomorrow.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver is also back on Sunday.
