Before you begin relaxing/partying/sleeping this weekend, you may want to set your DVR to catch a few things.
Like U2’s first night as house band for David Letterman. Yes, that U2. On U.S. television for five straight nights. Whether you’re a fan of the band or not, that’s probably worth a look – if for no other reason than to see if there will be any Paul Shaffer-style banter between Letterman and U2.
What could possibly top U2 as “Late Show” house band? How about Jimmy Fallon landing Justin Timberlake and Van Morrison as his first musical guests? If that’s any indication of the caliber of guests we can expect to see, this is going to be fun!
And over in cable television land, David Byrne will be dropping in on Stephen Colbert. Things could definitely get interesting.
