In the late night world, sometimes one guest is all you really need to make your mark for the week. Such is that case with "The Daily Show With Jon Stewart" this week, as even though some of the other shows have more consistent night-to-night collections of guests this week, Stewart is the only host who will welcome President Barack Obama to the set of his show. The Commander-In-Chief will sit down with Stewart on Wednesday (October 27) to discuss the upcoming "Rally to Restore Sanity," an event that will be going down this Saturday (October 30). It's Obama's first visit to "The Daily Show" since he was elected president, and it should be a lively discussion about the state of his term and the upcoming midterm elections.
But that's not to say you shouldn't be tuning in to the other fine offerings in the after-hours universe. "The Late Show With David Letterman" returns from vacation with a vengeance, as it will feature Charles Barkley and Kings of Leon (Monday, October 25), Taylor Swift (Tuesday, October 26) and Will Ferrell (Thursday, October 28). "The Tonight Show" will feature new friend of MTV News Martha Stewart (Monday), country music outlaw Jamey Johnson (Tuesday), international pop sensation Kylie Minogue (Wednesday) and veteran emo rockers Jimmy Eat World (Friday, October 29).
Jimmy Kimmel will welcome A Perfect Circle (Wednesday) and Mandy Moore (Thursday) to "Jimmy Kimmel Live," while "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" will feature a completely insane Tuesday night lineup (Joan Rivers, Juliette Lewis and Underworld will all be there) and an even more insane Thursday (because the musical guest is GWAR). Also, it's usually a good idea to see what Lauren Conrad is up to, and you can get that opportunity if you tune in to Tuesday night's edition of "Lopez Tonight."
And the strangest booking of the week goes to CBS' new daytime show "The Talk," which will welcome Total Nonstop Action Wrestling champion Jeff Hardy to the roundtable. What will Sara Gilbert and Leah Remini have to say to "The Charismatic Enigma"? You'll have to tune in to find out.
