Late-night TV is back this week, with all six major shows airing new episodes. So who should fans tune in to see?
Last week saw a limited amount of late-night TV choices. Shows like The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon took time off. However, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel, and more are all back to work starting tonight.
And they couldn’t have picked a better time to deliver new episodes. Fan-favorites shows like Better Call Saul, The Flight Attendant, and Ozark are coming back and the stars will be out in full force to promote the projects.
So with that in mind, here are five late-night TV guests that fans won’t want to miss this week. Be sure to let us know who you’ll be watching!
Late-night TV guest to watch: Kaley Cuoco
Kaley Cuoco landed a surprise hit with The Flight Attendant when it debuted on HBO Max in November 2020. Based on the novel by Chris Bohjalian, the show was something of a passion project for Cuoco who also serves as an executive producer.
The Flight Attendant season 2 premieres on April 21. Cuoco stops by Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Monday, April 18 to share some details on what fans can expect from her character Cassie.
Late-night TV guest to watch: Tina Fey
Don’t miss late-night TV legend Tina Fey on Late Night with Seth Meyers. She’s the top guest on Tuesday, April 19.
Fey and Meyers have a lot in common, of course. Both served as Saturday Night Live head writers and both sat behind the “Weekend Update” desk as anchors.
On Tuesday, the SNL alumni reunite as Fey comes to discuss her latest projects. Fey is the executive producer of Girls5eva, the Peacock comedy that starts season 2 on May 5. The comedian could also discuss the final run of shows for the Mean Girls musical in New York City.
Late-night TV guest to watch: The cast of ‘black-ish’
Flip back to Jimmy Kimmel Live! on Tuesday, April 19. The ABC late-night show welcomes the cast of black-ish.
It will happen on the same night that the popular sitcom airs its final episode. Season 8 began back in January, with the series premiere set to bring the show to a close after 175 episodes.
While there hasn’t been an official announcement of which cast members will sit down with Jimmy Kimmel, expect some combination of Anthony Anderson, Tracee Ellis Ross, Marcus Scribner, Miles Brown, Marsai Martin, Peter Mackenzie, Deon Cole, Jeff Meacham, Katlyn Nichol, and Jenifer Lewis.
Late-night TV guests to watch: Jason Bateman and Laura Linney
Another critically-acclaimed and beloved series sends its stars to late-night TV this week. See Ozark leads Jason Bateman and Laura Linney on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Thursday, April 21.
The second part of Ozark‘s final season streams on Netflix starting on April 29. Fans can see the final seven episodes to discover the fates of Marty Byrde, Wendy Byrde, Ruth Langmore, and the rest of the cast.
If you want to get in on the Late Show interview, here’s your chance. You can tweet a question for Bateman and Linney that could make it on Thursday’s show.
Late-night TV guest to watch: Nicolas Cage
Close out your week of late-night TV with Nicolas Cage. The beloved actor visits The Late Late Show with James Corden on Thursday, April 14.
It will actually be Cage’s second late-night stop of the week. You can catch him on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on April 20. However, we’re giving the nod to Cage with James Corden, partly because he’ll be on the couch alongside Aaron Paul.
But there’s no doubt that Cage will be the center of attention. He’s promoting his new movie The Unbearable Weight of Massive Talent, an action-comedy where Cage plays a fictionalized version of himself opposite Pedro Pascal’s character.
Cage recently participated in a Reddit AMA, proving that he’s willing to entertain just about any question with a thoughtful response. Hopefully, that continues on The Late Late Show. If fans are lucky, we may even get a career retrospective as Corden has done with the likes of Tom Hanks and Jim Carrey.
