Matt LeBlanc and Comedians on the Late Shows [COMEDY TONIGHT]
We loved Matt LeBlanc as Joey on Friends. We hated Matt LeBlanc as Joey on Joey. The comedy actor has redeemed himself on the new series, Episodes. He’s on the late shows time talking about the show – and hopefully not a Joey cast reunion.
Read on to find out who else is being served up in the late night “chuckle grotto.” (NOTE: The term “chuckle grotto” is a copyrighted phrase. Any unauthorized use will result in global warming.)
Ray Romano, on Late Show with David Letterman (CBS | 11:35 PM EST)
Have you seen Men of a Certain Age? It’s a great followup to Romano’s run on Everybody Loves Raymond. But let’s not forget that deep down, Romano is a stand up comedian who got his start alongside Judd Apatow in the 15th Annual Young Comedian Special (hosted by Dana Carvey).
Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (NBC | 12:35 AM EST)
Our apologies. No comedy guests tonight. Watch the Olympics.
Jimmy Kimmel Live (ABC |12:05 AM EST)
So sad. No comedy guests tonight. Boo.
Matt LeBlanc on Conan (TBS|10 PM EST)
Let’s put the short-lived sitcom, Joey, far behind us. This Friends spin-off was probably the worst comedy idea in the history of television. (Though you can get the entire series on DVD.) Matt LeBlanc is now starring on Episodes, a BBC Two/Showtime television series created by Friends co-creator David Crane and Jeffrey Klarik. The show centers on a British writing team who come to Hollywood to write a series for an arrogant star (LeBlanc). It’s classic comedy in the British tradition – tailored for an American audience. See what LeBlanc has to say about it tonight on Conan.
The Tonight Show w/Jay Leno (NBC|11:35/10:35)
Sorry. No comedy guests tonight. Watch the Olympics.
