The Jay Leno Show kicks off on Monday 14th September at 10pm on NBC.
The new show will feature celebrity guests every weeknight as The Tonight Show With Jay Leno used to, but The Jay Leno Show will focus more on comedy and other features rather than interviews. Features such as Headlines and Jaywalking from The Tonight Show also return in this new show.
Guests have been confirmed for the first week of shows: On the opening show on Monday 14th September, Jerry Seinfeld will make an appearance, and Jay-Z with Rihanna & Kanye West will provide the music. Tom Cruise will be the guest on the second show on Tuesday 15th September – Tom will take part in the new “10 at 10” feature on the programme, where Jay makes 10pm house calls to people.
On Wednesday 16th September Robin Williams will be a guest, and Miley Cyrus will appear for the “10 at 10” feature. Halle Berry will be the guest on Thursday 17th September with music from Eric Clapton with Bruce Hornsby. Drew Barrymore and comedian Jim Norton will close the first week on the Friday.
