New episodes of late night shows this week feature huge stars from television and movies.
Mondays don’t have to be all bad. Yes, it typically means a return to another week of work or school. But for late night fans, it means another week of shows featuring some very popular guests.
It also helps when every late night show is new. With more late night shows than ever (and even more on the way) you don’t have to search far and wide to find entertainment. While shows like The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and The Late Late Show with James Corden are on abbreviated schedules this week, the rest of late night will be running new episodes every night this week.
It is an important time in the entertainment world. A huge gap exists with the end of shows like Game of Thrones, Veep, and The Big Bang Theory. The box office domination of Avengers: Endgame is finally starting to decline meaning that audiences will be looking for the next big movie.
Late night remains a very important part of the marketing strategy for any television series, new or returning, as well as movies. A solid performance by a star on Jimmy Kimmel Live! or The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon can help attract audiences and push a project further into the mainstream.
And with summer just around the corner, some big releases are on the horizon. That’s one reason fans will see a lot of popular actors and entertainers this week. We also can’t forget that politicians use late night to reach people, so look out for 2020 candidates sitting down with late night hosts, too.
