Well, it’s a pretty good night for girl-watching on the talk-show circuit tonight. Christina Hendricks shows up on The Daily Show, and Kat Dennings does her part for CBS by stopping by to visit Craig Ferguson. And we predict Jimmy Fallon will have a difficult time maintaining eye contact with January Jones, who’s makes tonight a Mad Men double-header with an appearance on Late Night. She’s also Monday’s likely best bet for a memorable guest turn, since she and Jimmy seem to have a really good time bouncing off each other. In fact, we never find January more likable (see, we almost said “warm”) than when she’s visiting with Jimmy. Just don’t expect her to be talking about last night’s episode of Mad Men. She wasn’t even in it.
There’s a little something for the ladies, too. Conan O’Brien is taking the week off after turning 50 years old last week, and the first repeat is of Ryan Gosling’s appearance from last January. Matthew McConaughey and Ryan Lochte are over on David Letterman’s couch, and we notice that ladies have taken a liking to them–mostly likely ever since they’ve started following the CelebrityWatchdog Fitness Program for Studly Studs.
If you have a thing for older men or women, choose from Dennis Quaid with Jimmy Kimmel or Diane Keaton sitting down with Jay Leno. We’re also pleased to see young English rocker Jake Bugg making it onto The Tonight Show, as he keeps trying to break through to the American market. And that’s all just the start of your late-night options…
