For a talk show that is still trying to make an impact, NBC is being very methodical about announcing upcoming guest lists.
As of press time, the network’s confirmed lineup for “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” only extends through March 14, 2014. Given the network’s need to maximize hype, one would assume NBC would want its lineups confirmed and announced weeks in advance.
But the limited scope of NBC’s upcoming “The Tonight Show” lineup does not mean it fails to pack a punch. Next week’s lineup includes names like Demi Lovato, Tyler Perry, Shailene Woodley and Beck.
Most recently added to the parade of guests are interviewee James Franco and musical guest Jake Bugg. Both will appear on the Friday, March 14 edition of “Tonight.”
