If you’re anything like the MTV Newsroom staff, then the 53rd Grammy Awards kept you up until all hours on Sunday night (February 13). So now that you’re already used to staying up past your bedtime, why not spend the rest of your week staying up late and watching talk shows? It’s a good week for it, as there are some truly top-shelf guests hitting the studios this week — many of them fresh from their Grammy victories. For example, Lady Gaga will sit down and chat with Jay Leno on “The Tonight Show” on Monday night (February 14), where she will no doubt discuss her much-talked-about egg-assisted entrance on the red carpet. Other guests on “The Tonight Show” this week include John Legend (Monday), Charles Barkley (Wednesday, February 16) and 30 Seconds to Mars (Friday, February 18).
Meanwhile, David Letterman has cast his lot in another direction this week, as both his Monday and Tuesday (February 15) shows will prominently feature models from the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue. They’ll read a Top 10 list on Monday (where Letterman will also reveal the cover), and the cover model will sit on the couch on Tuesday. Letterman will also chat with Paris Hilton on Thursday (February 17), which means it should be an epic week on “The Late Show.” Jimmy Kimmel has a big week on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” as well, as he’ll have Jewel (Monday), Jeremy Renner (Tuesday), Javier Bardem (Wednesday) and Keri Hilson (Thursday). Jimmy Fallon will have a big music week, as the performers on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon” include Greyson Chance (Monday), Drive-By Truckers (Tuesday) and the supremely strange hip-hop collective Odd Future (Wednesday).
Meanwhile, Conan O’Brien might have everybody beat this week, as his Monday show features both Justin Bieber and Grammy winners the Black Keys. This week will also see visits from Dr. Phil (Tuesday), Fred Armisen (Wednesday) and Miami Heat star Chris Bosh (Thursday).
